Additional notes re online entry:

Entering the Jubilee Vase team competitions

The Jubilee Vase team competitions are for boats entered in the 4-day Yacht and Day Sailing Boat Series. For the Scratch Team competition, any 3 boats can get together to enter a team, provided they are sailing in at least two classes/divisions and are not all from a single Club team.  Entry is made by a lead boat, either via the online entry system or by downloadable paper form – the process is the same as described above for a boat entry, except there is no fee.  For the Jubilee Vase Club Team competition, entry is by email to entries@dartmouthsailingweek.com, or will be made automatically from the club declared on the boats’ entry forms.  For details, see NoR 12.5 (available to download here).

GoCardless

GoCardless allows payment to be made directly from your bank account. You will be notified by email 3 days before your account is debited.
GoCardless accesses the Direct Debit network through its sponsor, the Royal Bank of Scotland and is registered as a small Payments Institution with the Financial Services Authority. Payments are covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee.
When you click on ‘Enter Payment’ in WebCollect, you will be taken to the GoCardless site to set up a Direct Debit authorisation. You will be asked to provide your:
·         name and email address
·         bank details: Account holder name, sort code and account number
·         address
(If your bank account requires 2 signatories, you should complete the online form as usual to set up the payment, and then download the PDF paper mandate from the link at the bottom of the payment pages and post it to GoCardless.)
You will then be redirected back to WebCollect and taken to the checkout success page.
Please note that payment by direct debit is not instant – first time or one-off payments may take up to 10 days, subsequent payments up to 3 days. Your e-tickets will not be issued until WebCollect receives confirmation from GoCardless that the payment has been received. However we will accept your entry as soon as your GoCardless payment has been submitted.

Troubleshooting online entries and payment

Problem:  You tried to pay with PayPal but got sent back to WebCollect’s home page.  Answer: it may be that your cookie/privacy/security settings are too restrictive, and are not allowing WebCollect and PayPal to communicate with each other. You could try amending your settings, or try on a different device, or you could opt to pay by cheque and send that in the post.
Problem: You selected your ticket type (days, boat length etc) and clicked ‘Add to basket’, but then the ticket type selection was cleared, apparently sending you back to the beginning.  Answer: it may be that the small screen size prevented you from noticing the ‘Added to basket’ pop-up.  Click on ‘My basket’, and you may find that your entry is in fact there, and ready to proceed to Checkout.
