Assurance of Your Yachting Skills

No formal certification is required to charter a bareboat yacht with Club Sail. Your qualification is based on your sailing experience, however we must both feel confident that your skills are adequate enough to handle the yacht, and we will require you to note your sailing experience on the charter contract. If you feel that you would like to learn more about sailing or gain more experience, please discuss with us the options available to you through our sailing school.

Your Guarantee Of Charter

The yacht of your choice is reserved only for you, and your prepayment will guarantee this. Upon confirmation of your booking, Club Sail will ask you for a 50% deposit, with the balance payable 7 days prior to your charter. This is an easy phone procedure, as we accept Eftpos for Visa/Mastercard/Bankcard/Diners Club and American Express. In cases of cancellation inside 7 days, Club Sail reserves the right to withhold your deposit. If you choose to transfer your charter to an alternate date, no cancellation fee will apply providing the new charter date is rebooked within 48 hours, otherwise full cancellation fees will apply. Full refunds are only given due to inclement weather. Club Sail will determine the suitability of weather conditions.

Club Sail's Charter Times

Because your yacht charter is a complete experience, we make sure you can enjoy 'full days' on the water, departing from 8.30 am and returning by 4.30 pm and 5.30pm during daylight saving months. For weekend charterers, Club Sail will give you extra value for money. We invite you to board from mid afternoon on Friday free of charge. Your briefing can be done either Friday afternoon, daylight permitting, or 8.30am on Saturday.

Security on the Water

Yacht insurance is included in the charter rate, protecting you against any mishaps. The insurance excess is $1,000 on all yachts. Club Sail asks you to pay this security bond for the time you are on the water. It is fully reimbursable to you within a few days, providing the yacht is returned in an undamaged and clean state and without any breakages or losses.

Marine Cuisine

Club Sail's 'Marine Cuisine' will take the hassle out of your list of 'things to do'. Let Club Sail do the shopping, as it will save you time onshore and give you more time on the water. It can also be a special surprise, for the lady of the yacht! We provide a choice of healthy and delicious menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Call us for full details.

There is an allowance for Club Sail charterers to utilise the casual marina berths, and you will be guided in by the dockmaster. There are also other top restaurants to nosh at during your charter in the Hawkesbury area.

On Arrival At Club Sail

come to the Newport Anchorage Marina, Office 10, Marina level, 79-81 Beaconsfield St, Newport. That's right next to the Newport Arms Hotel on the corner of Beaconsfield and Kalinya St. .

What to Bring

Your yacht will have most of what you will need already onboard. You really only have to bring personal items - clothing, toilet kit, alcoholic beverages. The weather in Sydney is normally comfortable all year round, but you can check the weather conditions just prior to coming on and decide on the best clothing to bring to suit the season. The Bavaria yachts already have wet weather clothing but if you have your own, bring it along.

Please Note

Our yachts have a 'smoke free zone' below decks. Please no eskies, as all the yachts have adequate refrigeration for food & beverages. Thank you for your consideration also by wearing non marking soled shoes.
