10 Do I have to pay a bond?
The security bond is $1500 per vessel (not applicable if you have purchased a DJ Boat single ticket). If you have booked a whole yacht, the security bond will be payable by no later than the Wednesday prior to the event date you have booked. It must be paid via bank transfer. We will email you the bank details two weeks before your event date. It is to cover any possible damages to your yacht. Please note that your yacht is your responsibility. Everyone will be issued with a coloured wristband that corresponds to your yacht. If you allow anyone else on to your yacht with a different coloured wristband then they are your responsibility i.e. if they cause any damage to your yacht then this will be deducted from your security bond. For further details please refer to The Yacht Social Club terms & conditions here.
11 What if the weather is poor?
Unfortunately we don't sell sunshine! The event will only be cancelled in the case of dangerous weather conditions such as gale force winds, which make it unsafe to sail. This will be down to the operators discretion and not the attendees. If for example it rains, the event will still go ahead.

13 What should I bring?
Substantial food (enough for a meal) e,g burger & salad. This is essential rule for BYO alcohol to be allowed
Inflatables + pump
Plates, plastic cups & cutlery
Ice. There will be an esky onboard but it's worth bringing an additional one as it won't fit everyones drinks in it.
14 What should I NOT bring?
Any illegal substances
Valuables – they could get dropped / lost / wet
Your friend that doesn’t have a ticket. The yachts are at maximum capacity and there are no ticket sales on the day
Black soled shoes
Try to avoid glass because if it breaks it can be extremely dangerous for people walking around barefoot.
15 What should I NOT do?
Turn up late for boarding. Once we set sail the only way of getting on board is by water taxi which is expensive!
Get too drunk – this could result in you being ejected from the event or your yacht having to return to shore
Litter. Let's keep the harbour nice and clean
Annoy your skipper - he's the boss
Misbehave and cause any damage to the yacht otherwise you risk losing your security bond
16 What is the difference between a standard and premium catamaran?
The premium catamarans are much more luxurious inside with their own lounge area, nice seating etc. The standard catamarans are more of a bare boat set-up.
