Bookings for scheduled departures are not refundable if the customer cancels within 5 working days of departure or for a no show.

The NZ Sailing Trust reserves the right to cancel any trip for any reason, including due to insufficient passenger numbers or unsuitable weather conditions.


Yacht racing is challenging adventure activity and has a degree of inherent risk that will be managed in accordance with the Trust’s professional risk management procedures, participants should be aware and accept responsibility for these risks.   The New Zealand Sailing Trust therefore asks that you sign the following acknowledgement.

While recognising that the NZ Sailing Trust skipper and crew will take every precaution possible to ensure the safety and manage the risks inherent in the activities you will be participating in, I agree that I will accept responsibility for observing all safety procedures (including the wearing of safety clothing and equipment), obeying all instructions and using equipment in a proper manner.

The NZ Sailing Trust are not responsible for any injury to passengers or damage to property for any cause whatsoever. People with medical conditions will be accepted at the discretion of the skipper. The departure is subject to minimum numbers and the NZ Sailing Trust reserves the right to return to Auckland rather than complete the race if safety of the crew or the vessel is unduly compromised due to weather or other circumstances.

In the event of accident or illness, I authorise the staff of The Trust to obtain such medical assistance for myself as may be thought necessary.
