Thought I'd share my two cents. The world event played out normally I assume until I arrived back at Winchell's location. He was just off the very top rock where you first interact with him. Tried placing the crate at his feet, but no response. I took offense to this so I yeeted the box into the river below and came to this thread. Apparently the box de/respawned back at the nudist camp so I went through the motions again I found Winchell at his tent just a bit further down the hill from where I saw him the last few times. The game then prompted me to place the box down and the event proceeded as normal.
If you are having issues, maybe yeet your box into the river as well? I hope this helps someone.

This is the same problem on PC. At the nudist camp, the inability to deliver the crate to the man standing on the rock. The crate simply does not exist. I reloaded the backup, I traveled elsewhere, waited for hours and even then this bug exists. Quite a few people are experiencing this. I hope you fix it. Thanks in advance.
Anyway, the game is great

Same Problem. At first you can grab the Box and run away with it, but Winchell seems to reposition himself during this procedure and you can´t talk to him anymore because of that. Restarted the game, tried to load a Savegame before i grabbed the Box, and it simple didnt appear anymore.
This is the first time I have encountered so many bugs, I have the feeling that the further we move in the plot, the game crashes more and more, if it was one bug in a side mission that's ok, but after 17 hours of play, I came across 5 errors that prevent you from continuing the game and side attractions such as entering the world of Valhalla or getting Thor's armor, do you think restarting the game will help?

So i was trying to steal the box with clothes of the naked people that danced at the river, the game had a error and shut itself. Now there is no box of clothes anymore. It just dissapeared and i cannot finish the quest. Anyone the same problem or a workaorund? I searched everywhere for the box but its gone haha

Same problem for me. Need a fix asap. Very annoying and poor design. Devs need to get on these small bugs bc they making the game annoying to play. I took the box up the hill and nothing happened so I throw it into the lake and it disappeared. Now this quest is just sitting here and I cannot complete it.
- Fast travelling away and coming back does NOT reset this world events progress. (- tested by me)
- Trying to find the crate somewhere close will not work, I've looked over two hours trying to find it, before I reset my game progress. (- tested by me)
- Trying the kill the NPC will not work. He is some kind of god, he is unkillable. Damage, wolves, arrows, fire, nothing worked (- tested by me)
- Start a new story.
This WORKED for me. However you need to decide if it is worth it, losing all your previous gameplay for one world event. If you're going for completionist, I guess it is worth it (if you cba to wait if this will ever get patched, because Ubisoft knowing, ... well, it might never get fixed ).
However I lost 16h of gameplay by starting a new story, I'm happy there is still a way I might be able to get completionist at the end
If you don't think it's worth it to replay the story till now, wait for the first or coming patches from the game in the next days or weeks. Since it's a pritty common bug, I think they will patch it sooner or later.
I hope I won't encounter more bugs like this in the near future, one setback for 3h of gameplay was already enough from a glitched cinematic, no way I'm resetting a 2nd time for another bug later in the story.
note: this is not an official ubisoft answer. there is a chanse starting a new game won't fix your issues. i'm not accountable for lost progress if yours still doesn't work after a new story.
forgive my grammar mistakes, its currently 3am for me and im tired if these stupid bugs

I have the "fix" for this. The quest doesn't explain it well, but you have to place the crate over on the blanket by his tent. If you activate Odin's Eye mode you'll see it glowing. This worked for me, anyway.

Good evening everyone,
I seem to be experiencing a bug in regards to the World Event that relates to Winchell the Robesfree. He tasked me with collecting the clothes from nearby nudists since he was cast out. I picked up the crate after talking to the now lady in charge of the whole group. However, I went the wrong way and the box of clothes were in the water, with no way for me to pick it up. I closed the game and opened it, now the crate was gone. I reloaded an earlier save, the crate did not spawn. I followed the suggestion to leave the World Event and come back later, I did and the crate still did not spawn. I restarted the game and tried it again, did not spawn. I completed other world events far away from there, the crate still did not spawn. What shall I try next or is there a way to reset it some other way?

I’m having the same problem, it isn’t back again after quitting the game and restarting either, which I’d hoped would start the mystery over.
