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.
ATTENDANCE AT ANY AND ALL EVENTS BY ANY AND ALL ATTENDEES IS STRICTLY SUBJECT TO THESE CONDITIONS.
Application of Conditions to Ticket Purchasers

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, 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.
