Terms and Reservations for Public Sail Ticket Purchases

Downrigging Weekend 2019 Public Sail tickets are fully refundable (less a $5 per-ticket administrative fee) according to the following schedule:

November 1 Sails – Refundable Through 11:59pm on October 24
November 2 Sails – Refundable Through 11:59pm on October 25
November 3 Sails – Refundable Through 11:59pm on October 26

After the above-listed dates, tickets are not refundable but may be transferred to another name(s). Tickets will not be refunded due to illness, family emergency, etc. Ticket holders should be aware that Downrigging Weekend Public Sails are an outdoor activity. Sails will likely proceed in the event of rain or colder weather. As a rule-of-thumb, if the weather would permit an NFL team to play football, the Downrigging Weekend Fleet will likely sail. Passengers are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather!  Downrigging Weekend Sails will only be cancelled if weather conditions are deemed dangerous by the licensed captain of a participating vessel. Due to the different sailing characteristics of the participating vessels, this decision may not be uniform among the fleet (i.e. some vessels may cancel while other sail). In the event of a cancellation, ticket holders will be informed as far in advance as possible and will automatically receive a full refund.
