Terms and Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions in their entirety prior to ordering goods.


New Zealand Sailing realise that one of the greatest worries that people have about purchasing on the web is that of security. The New Zealand Sailing Website is scanned on a daily basis by a specialist outside company to ensure that there are no known hacker vulnerabilities, ensuring that the data you enter stays secure.

HACKER SAFE certified sites prevent over 99.9% of hacker crime.

We also offer secure payment options - You can choose to either phone New Zealand Sailing with your credit card details for manual entry through our credit card terminal or to pay on-line using a payment gateway. Our payment gateway is provided by the BNZ; they provide secure online credit card and debit card payment solutions for thousands of online and mail order businesses across NZ and are the one of largest Payment Service Providers in the country. BNZ solely handles your card details on their secure server where they run extensive security checks and obtain card authorisation. The merchant (New Zealand Sailing Ltd) never has access to your credit card details. The only information that New Zealand Sailing holds on you is information for the purposes of ordering and/or the opt-in mailing list. This user information is held in our database that is not directly accessible from the web. If you have any worries about security please feel free to contact us

Where possible we offer an express delivery service whereby, if the order has been received by 1200hrs on a working day, we will process the order that day and ship on a next working day service. However, it should be noted that occasionally our couriers experience operational difficulties and therefore this is not a guaranteed service.
