  • Refunds for the fees paid for the current season will be calculated as per the percentages nominated in Table 1.

  • Refunds will only be approved with the return of all current vessel’s licensee, authorised user or annual admission adhesive stickers for the season. In some circumstances, a signed statutory declaration may be required if the adhesive sticker has been destroyed.
  • Refunds will be processed to the credit card initially used to make payment, or by cheque upon request. Under no circumstances will cash be issued.
