All participants upon signing up for Baybreak 2020 must agree to the participant waiver. This important document sets the rules and regulations, privacy, refund, cancellation and other policies around which we need to operate the event.

Thanks for your interest in Baybreak.
Hervey Bay Break inc. is a registered Not for Profit (NFP) Incorporated Association in Queensland Australis.
The charter of Hervey Bay Break Inc. is to host all inclusive sporting events to encourage participation of all members of our community in outdoor activities and to hold events in a manner to encourage visitors from out of town to come and stay in Hervey Bay, thereby increasing our tourism and the broader economy of our community.
The NFP is run 100% by volunteers and each year funds from baybreak go to support schools and other groups in our community which are vulnerable and in need.
Running any sort of event incurrs substantial costs and the non-refundable costs associated with running Baybreak generally amount to 95% of the registration fees which we collect. The majority of these fees are committed to well before the event is held as we need to organise traffic management, marine park permits, local council permits, merchandise, medals, timing, security, traffic marshals, first aid, Master of Ceremonies, book venues for presentations, catering, insurance and much more.
These pre-event and non-refundable committments influence the ability of the NFP to refund registration fees should people withdraw from the the event. Stratight out refunds would put the NFP in an insolvent position and liquidators would need to be brought in which would result in everyone in the community missing out and Baybreak not being able to run again.
We thank you in advance for your understanding of this and your continued support which allows Baybreak to run and provide an event for our locals and tourists alike, as well as be in a position to conitune to give back and support our community.
