SailCorp takes no responsibility for any claims or guarantees made by Charter Operators and reserve the right to refuse a refund which is based on any such claims or guarantees. Suitable Charters are sourced for each quotation to ensure their availability at that time. A boat can become unavailable at any time after the quotation is issued due to the receipt of a deposit by another agency or Operator. In these situations SailCorp will make every effort to source a similar vessel. If alternate arrangements cannot be made, a full refund will be issued. SailCorp will not be held liable for any arrangements or costs associated with a vessel that becomes unavailable.
