How Do I send Sails From USA To Bermuda

I have ordered a new Genoa from a loft in Fort Lauderdale. I would like the sail to be sent to Bermuda so I can collect it there (I'm sailing from Colombia via windward passage to join a rally in Bermuda and want avoid a detour to Fort Lauderdale.
Questions:
1. Will I be liable for import tax if the sails are being exported on my boat
2. Any ideas on quantum of taxes (if any)
3. If I mark the sails as "yacht Spares in transit" would that satisfy customs
4. The sail weight is around 44kgs. Do I use Fedex/DHL or ?

I will be grateful for any input. Thanks in advance
