my return trip from the Master Worlds in Mexico, I had problems with the Puerto Vallarta
airport security. They would not accept my tiller as carry-on luggage. By the
time I got back to check it as luggage, they were no longer accepting luggage.
The supervisor was blunt – my options were throwing it away or missing the
considered taking it to lost-and-found with the hope of having someone else
pick it up for me, but then I saw Ernesto Rodriguez (USA) checking in for his flight to Miami.
He would have had the same problem, so I asked if he would tape our two tillers
together and check them as baggage so that he can ship mine to Dallas … thank
So be warned. Wonder if the ILCA can get some sort of pre-clearance with a travel document we could use that ensures that others do not have this problem in the future.
