SOLO Adventure Sailing
Sail away for a day or evening on the magnificent 57-foot yacht, SOLO. Learn the secrets of ocean racing aboard the four-time winner of the Sydney to Hobart race. Your trip can include snorkelling or sand tobogganing, and you could see dolphins and dugongs along the way. Meals are provided and the yacht is licensed. Bring sunscreen, swimsuit, hat and soft-soled shoes. Charter sails can be arranged for up to 36 people. Not recommended for children under six. Bookings are essential.
Some time ago I purchased a gift voucher through a company called Red Balloon Days for a day's sailing on "Solo". After one cancellation (from Solo's end) and then attending for the next scheduled day out (with another couple who we had no association with) and nobody arrived to take us out on the yacht, both couples tried to contact the people who were taking us out. After a few phone calls and leaving messages, we finally got a response from the people concerned saying they had apparently phoned us and the other couple and left messages on our mobile phones' voicemail advising of the cancellation. Neither couple received any message at all and as you can imagine we were quite unhappy as I spent hundreds of dollars for the experience and feel cheated by these dishonest operators.
That was almost a year and a half ago and I'm trying to find contact details for these people to have them honour the vouchers or refund my money. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
My girlfriend bought me a days sailing on Solo for Christmas last year for the two of us. We had originally booked in for a day in February, which was unforunately cancelled due to inclement weather. Ever since (now July) we haven't been able to contact, or been contacted by, Tracey, or someone involved with Solo. My girlfriend has seemingly been ripped off the good money that she had put up for what was going to be a great days sailing. And now we can't seem to find any website, phone numbers or contact details for this mob. Thanks very much arseholes

I booked a day trip on Solo for the 02/05/06, which was my 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was to be a very special day as on my honeymoon 25 years ago , in the Witsundays we went on Solo. We turned up at the Jetty and Solo did not arrive. I phoned Tracey and she told me that they cancelled the trip, and gave no other excuse .My wife and myself were very upset and disappointed . A couple of days prior, I had spoken to Tracey to confirm , she gave no indication of cancelling the trip . She had my phone number , but did not ring to advise of the cancellation . Very Unprofessional.I also sent her a email to express my disappointment, but she did not bother to reply. I hope everyone is wary when booking with Solo as everything is not clear sailing with Solo.
