Terms of Payment
The full amount or a minimum deposit of £150 per person is due with the completed booking form for each course that is booked more than 6 months in advance. The balance of the fee is due 120 days before the start of the course. The school “Yacht Sail Training” reserves the right without further notification to re-let reserved places where the balance of fee has not been paid by the due date.

No additional liability for compensation or expenses will be accepted by the School. Reserved places that are cancelled in writing by a student more than 120 days prior to the starting date will result in the deposit being forfeit. Cancellations by students within 120 days of the starting date will result in the full fee being forfeit but in either case it may be possible to claim under your personal or holiday insurance.
In the event that any activity or course has to be commenced or terminated at any other place or time than that indicated in the programme or joining instructions it will be the students responsibility to arrange and pay for any accommodation or travel costs involved.

Covid Extra Terms & Conditions
March 2020 Onwards:
You have an absolute right to cancel your booking, without providing a reason, and receive a full refund at any time up until 120 days prior to your course / experience start-date.
Cancellation or refund requests received within the 120-day period may also be accommodated, if we can replace your booking with another (from our waiting list, for example) but we are not obliged to do this.
This is because your cancellation at such short-notice may make it financially unviable, or impractical, to run a course-date without your booking – meaning that we could have to cancel on the other customers already booked, and let them down too.
We think that 120-days is generally enough time for us to find another customer to replace your booking, but if you need to cancel or change dates, please try and let us know as early as possible so that we can start to find another customer to take your space. Thanks!
