SailGP Event Access Terms and Conditions
- All capitalised terms used in these Conditions shall have the meaning set out in the Definitions at the end of these Conditions.
These Conditions are issued by F50 League LLC (trading as SailGP) (“SailGP”), and govern admission and entry to, and use of, any and all Venues by Attendees.
Entry to Ticketed Areas requires a valid Ticket which must be retained and implies acceptance of the Conditions which have been established for the safety and enjoyment of all Attendees. Any and all Tickets are issued by or on behalf of SailGP. Each Ticket is and shall remain at all times the property of SailGP and/or a Promoter. In the event of a breach of any of these Conditions, the Ticket shall, upon the request of SailGP and/or a Promoter, be returned immediately to SailGP and/or a Promoter.
SailGP may amend these Conditions from time to time. Please check the latest version of the Conditions posted at www.sailgp.com to ensure you understand the Conditions that apply to all Attendees. In the event of a conflict between any terms and conditions posted by SailGP online and these terms and conditions, the terms and conditions posted online shall apply.
For the avoidance of doubt, these Conditions do not apply to admission and entry to, and use of any hospitality at the Events including the Adrenaline Lounge hospitality area.
Application of Conditions to Attendees
By his/her attendance at an Event (whether by any use or attempted use of a Ticket, or by any access or attempted access to any Ticketed Areas or areas that are not Ticketed Areas), an Attendee shall be deemed to have been made aware of these Conditions, and to have accepted and agreed to comply with and be bound by, these Conditions.
In addition, any Ticket Purchaser shall be deemed to have made any subsequent Ticket Holder expressly aware of these Conditions and is responsible for ensuring any subsequent Ticket Holder complies fully with these Conditions.
In allowing the Attendee entry to the Venue, SailGP relies on the Attendee’s acceptance of, agreement to and strict compliance with these Conditions. The Attendee’s attendance at any Venues shall also be subject to any terms and conditions, warnings, rules or instructions displayed at those Venues or set out on the SailGP website at www.sailgp.com.
ATTENDANCE AT ANY AND ALL EVENTS BY ANY AND ALL ATTENDEES IS STRICTLY SUBJECT TO THESE CONDITIONS.
Application of Conditions to Ticket Purchasers
SailGP or the Promoter on behalf of SailGP, may elect at its discretion to change the scope, schedule, running order and/or format of any aspect of the Event at any time.
The Ticket Purchaser and Ticket Holders shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the purchase and use of the Tickets as required by Applicable Laws, including any Tickets which are received as part of a commercial arrangement and/or at a discount to the face value of the Tickets.
Cancellations and Refunds
SailGP reserves the right to make changes to the times, dates and places of the Series or any Event due to unforeseen circumstances, including (without limitation) an Event of Force Majeure, safety and security concerns and/or decisions from any other competent authority including (without limitation) any race management, stewards or other officials involved with an Event. SailGP will make reasonable attempts to adhere to any programme for the Event but is unable to guarantee that such programme can be maintained as per the programme for the Event.
The running schedule for the Event shall be operated by SailGP to deliver an Event on each Attendance Day as it determines appropriate.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, SailGP reserves the right to cancel the whole or a part of the Series or an Event as a result of an Event of Force Majeure. In the event of such a cancellation, the Refund Policy set out at www.sailgp.com shall apply. SailGP will inform the Ticket Holders of any determination under the Refund Policy where possible including by way of display both at the Event and at www.sailgp.com. For the avoidance of doubt, Non Ticket Holders shall not be entitled to any form of compensation in the event of cancellation of the whole or a part of the Series or an Event.
Save as set out in these Conditions or as required by Applicable Law, the sale or other issuance of any Ticket is final and non-refundable. SailGP reserves the right to not replace or accept any Ticket that has been lost, stolen, forgotten, damaged or forged, or any Ticket which is unreadable or incomplete.
Whilst every reasonable effort will be made to ensure the Event are delivered in accordance with the details as set out on the SailGP website, SailGP reserves the right, in SailGP’s absolute discretion, to make any changes to the Event.
The Attendees, and any Ticket Purchaser, acknowledge and accept the nature of the Events means the format, timing and potential continuation of the Event are all potentially subject to change, variation, postponement, abandonment and cancellation. On this basis, SailGP relies on the expertise and experience of the race directors and Ticket Committee to determine what steps shall be taken in connection with the Event and the Tickets to reflect the specific circumstances of any such change, variation, postponement, abandonment and/or cancellation.
It is the Attendee’s responsibility to ascertain whether an Event has been cancelled or re-scheduled and the date and time of any re-scheduled Event. SailGP will endeavour to announce that an Event is cancelled or re-scheduled by way of its website, social media and, where possible, on displays at the Venue but SailGP does not guarantee the Ticket Purchaser will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event. In this sense, we would advise each Ticket Holder and Non Ticket Holder to regularly review SailGP’s website and social media channels to keep up to date with the scheduling and operation of Events.
In connection with any cancellation or abandonment of an Event:
(a) the race director’s decision of how much of the Event has taken place will be final;
(b) the Ticket Committee’s decision on the refund policy for each Ticket will be final;
(c) only the original Ticket Purchasers are eligible for refunds and based solely on the actual price paid for each Ticket; and
(d) it is the official amount of the Event which has taken place which will be applied to the decision of the Ticket Committee rather than the amount of the Event an individual Ticket Holder may have viewed.
Restrictions on Transfers of Tickets
Tickets are strictly non-transferable except as set out in these Conditions. A Ticket Purchaser may purchase Tickets only for his/her/its own personal use and that of his/her/its Guest(s). Any such transfer by the Ticket Purchaser of a Ticket to a Guest (at which point such Guest shall, thenceforth, become a Ticket Holder) must be made strictly subject to these Conditions (and the Guest’s acceptance thereof in its capacity as a Guest and Ticket Holder).

Entire Agreement: These Conditions, together with the booking agreement between SailGP and the Purchaser pursuant to which the BYOB Flag was issued, constitute the entire agreement and understanding between the Purchaser and SailGP, the Captain and SailGP and each Passenger and SailGP and supersede any other prior arrangements, understandings or agreements (whether written or oral) between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof.
Severability: Each of the provisions set out in these Conditions shall be severally enforceable. If any provision of these Conditions will be found by any court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect the other provisions of these Conditions which will remain in full force and effect. If any provision of these Conditions is so found to be invalid or unenforceable but would be valid or enforceable if some part of the provision were deleted, the provision in question will apply with such modification(s) as may be necessary to make it valid. If any provision of these Conditions is found to be invalid or unenforceable and the foregoing does not apply, the parties agree to attempt to substitute for any invalid or unenforceable provision a valid or enforceable provision which achieves to the greatest extent possible the same effect as would have been achieved by the invalid or unenforceable provision.
