One month before your charter you will receive an email detailing when your boat will be available and all other relevant information. This email will also prompt you to log into your account to verify your damage deposit payment. NO MONEY will be taken from your card at this stage.


 Once you arrive at the event please head to the RS stand where we will allocate your charter boat. You can inspect your charter boat and any present damage will be logged in your charter agreement before you esign the acceptance of the boat.

Please report any damage, however small, so that we can work with you to get the boat ready for the next day of racing and ensure that the damage will not get any worse!
