If you wish to cancel a CHARTER (excludes experiences)
If you wish to cancel a booking, then please notify us as soon as possible. If you cancel your booking within 14 days of paying your deposit and at least 8 weeks prior to departure, you’ll receive a full refund, less an administration fee of £50.00 per crew member. A deposit will become non refundable 14 days after the date of booking. If you cancel 8 weeks or more before the start of the experience then you will be liable for 50% of the full fee. If you cancel an experience less than 8 weeks before the start of, or after the commencement of your experience then you will be liable for the full cost of the booking. In all cases, if we are able to resell your cancelled berth, we will reimburse you the full cost less the deposit. You are strongly recommended to take out travel insurance to cover yourself should you need to cancel.
If we have to cancel a CHARTER
In the unlikely event that we are forced to cancel due unusual and unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, (Force Majeure, including very strong winds forecast), we will endeavour to offer an alternative voyage at a mutually agreeable date.
If we have to cancel a voyage due to any other reasons, e.g. mechanical failure, then a full refund or an alternative voyage will be offered.
In all cases our liability is limited to offering a refund only up to the amount paid and we will have no further liability to you in respect of consequential economic loss.
