Romance B&B FAQs

Do I need any sailing experience for the BnB On Sea

No, our experienced skipper will look after you to and from your anchorage.

What time do we leave?

Depends on the package!

It is best to contact Sydney By Sail staff with your preferred date in mind so we can give you an accurate start time. 

Essentially we get you out on the harbour as early as possible. 

What time do we get picked up the next day?

For the Gold & Platinum packages, it is usually a 10am arrival back to our base in Darling Harbour. If you like to sleep in, contact our staff to arrange a late checkout!

What should we bring?

All you need is an overnight bag with toiletries, warm comfortable clothing, non-marking white soft soled shoes, music and any additional beverages/food/snacks.

Will it be cold on board?

The cabin warms up quickly as the yachts are well insulated. The bedding is nice and warm and you will have hot water too.

Are there power points on board?

The on board systems are run off a 12v battery supply so the only access to power is by using a 12v adaptor.

You can charge your mobile phone with a car adaptor or a usb plug.

Sorry, but not enough to power hair dryers.

Can we smoke on board?

Smoking is not allowed below deck. Smoking above deck is permissible, however we ask that you refrain from throwing butts overboard.

If we bring our own food is there cooking equipment on board?

Food Platters are included in the package.

But each yacht has a 2-burner stove with an oven, including pots, frying pan, cutlery and crockery.

Where do we anchor in the Harbour?

Depending on the wind direction, we use one of three designated anchorages.

  1. Athol Bay, in front of Taronga Zoo if the wind blows from the N/NE.
  2. Snail’s Bay, Balmain if from the S/SE
  3. Bulls Head Bay, Waverton if from the W/SW.
Where do we have breakfast?

You are provided Breakfast onboard the yacht. Choose your preferred breakfast menu from our gourmet catering menus!

Will I get seasick?

We always choose the best possible sheltered anchorage to minimise the rocking of the yacht.

Occasionally during the night wash from passing vessel might cause the yacht to rock.

If you are susceptible to seasickness or travel sickness you can try remedies such as tablets, spray and wrist bands.

It is quite rare for our customers to get seasick.

What happens if we cancel our booking?

Usual booking conditions apply. Any monies paid can be used as a future credit.

Postponement fee applies and you can arrange to pick up the food (if cancelled on the day).

To re-book there will be a charge for the food order unless outside of 3 working days.
