How to register
The registration is currently full but you can still register for the waitlist. However, this only accepts individual crew members and not captains. The process for defining how additional entries will be allocated is still being defined. GLORY has confirmed with the organisers that refunds will be given if you don't get an entry (despite what it says on the Chicago Gay Games website).

How to register a team for the waitlist
Since you can't register as a captain on the waitlist you need to register as a crew, but your entire crew should use the same team name so they can be identified:

Complete pages 1-4 of the registration and select Sailing as your sport.

On Page 5 of the registration, enter your Sailing Team Name (e.g. Windy Sisters).

Leave the Sailing Team Captain's Confirmation Code blank.

You can then get the rest of your crew to also register with the same Team Name which will enable registration to identify you as a complete team for the Waitlist.

5.  My bank also told me that there were several charges for the same amount.  However, I only received ONE confirmation number.  When I stated this, AFFICIENT said this was normal.  They only put through charges that have received a confirmation number - once a day - and that the other charges would not be processed by their system is they did not have a confirmation number. 

6.  AFFICIENT also said that if, by any chance, a charge was made in error, then it would be reimbursed.  I have not check with my bank yet, but will let you know when I do so.
