3. If you wish to proceed we will send you invoices for the hall hire, including a bond invoice that will be repaid once the hire is complete.
Please follow the instructions on the invoice regarding your reference and quoting the invoice number so we can track your payment. The bank account details are also on the invoice.
Hall Hire Bookings for evening functions are limited to only one booking per week, out of respect for our immediate neighbours. Our lease with the Auckland City Council restricts the number of hires (in any one year) which may finish at midnight. Once this limit is met, future functions will be expected to finish at 11pm.
Please be aware that the clubhouse is situated in a residential area. All involved with the function are required to respect this by reducing their noise to the absolute minumum.
This includes not only the Sailing Club Rooms, but the council reserve on which we are located and the surrounding streets.
The bond holder is responsible for the control of the function and all those associated with it. The bond holder must ensure the premises are vacated in an orderly and quiet manner before the 12pm (or 11pm) curfew. Although we allow a midnight / (11pm) curfew, the Auckland Council impose noise control regulations at 10pm . You are expected to abide by these. Please see a copy of guidelines issued to us by the Auckland City Council at the bottom of this page. If Noise control are called in, we will not take responsibility.
We ask that in order to retain the goodwill of our neighbours you observe the following; Close the door to the street at 10pm, refrain from loud talking outside, and refrain from revving car engines when leaving the venue.
Any failure to comply with conditions of hire will result in the loss of your bond.
As a Community Organisation, the Sailing Club does not promote the irresponsible consumption of alcohol. A responsible host should not encourage excess drinking in an inappropriate area.
There is an ACC alcohol ban in all public areas surrounding the Club.
