Welcome to our Spring 2019 newsletter.
As our sailing season gets underway, we thought that now would be a good time to update you with our plans for 2019.
Our 2019 Sailing Experience Schedule
Dates for 2019 day sails and weekend sails continue to be listed on our sailing schedule page. You can book your sailing experience directly from our website. More dates will be added throughout the season, but as always, if you can’t see a suitable date just get in touch and we will do our very best to help you.
2019 Group Sailing Experiences
Our longer 5-day and 7-day group sailing experiences are added to our sailing schedule on demand. These types of sailing experiences are ideal for those wishing to develop their skills, build miles or enjoy an active holiday.
Our 5-day group sailing experience from 29th July – 2nd August is now FULLY BOOKED. If you would like to request an alternative date, do get in touch. We will do our best to schedule a date for you (subject to availability).
Sailing Experience Gift Vouchers
If you are in possession of a sailing experience gift voucher, you can visit our website to choose and book your sailing date. Your sailing experience must be booked within 12 months of the purchase date. This date is stated on the covering letter that accompanied the voucher. It is important to bear in mind that as we approach the end of the season (September/October) fewer dates will be available due to weather and sailing conditions, so please give yourself plenty of time to book.
As always, if you cannot see a suitable date, just get in touch to request one – we will always do our very best to help.
RYA Sailing Courses
Devon Sailing Experiences continue to run RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper (practical) courses. RYA courses are scheduled on demand. You are very welcome to request a date to be added to our schedule, however, we are only able to run a course with a minimum of 3 students. All courses are subject to yacht and instructor availability.
We currently have some availability for a bareboat charter aboard our Bavaria 38 in May and July 2019. Our bookings calendar is constantly evolving. Due to the volume of enquiries we receive on a daily basis, we are unable to secure a date without a 20% deposit. If you would like to request a date, do get in touch.
Refurbishment at King Point Marina
The shower block at King Point Marina is currently undergoing refurbishment. As a result, secure temporary shower and toilet facilities have been set up in the car park area. Although this makes the normally high-quality marina look a little unsightly, they offer a good alternative whilst building works are being carried out. Guests are very welcome to use these temporary facilities. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause in the short term. We will keep you updated on the progress of the work.
Changes in our Terms and Conditions
Our Terms and Conditions have been updated for 2019. These small changes reflect our new business address as well as making information clearer for our guests with regards to cancellation, rescheduling and use of vouchers. By booking with Devon Sailing Experiences, you are accepting our Terms and Conditions. If you are unsure about any aspect, please feel free to ask.
Throughout the summer months, our sailing schedule is constantly being updated. Every time we add additional dates and sailing opportunities, we send notifications via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Make sure you follow us to receive immediate updates including information about last minute availability.
We also love to receive emails and messages about your sailing adventures with Devon Sailing Experiences. If you have any photos you have taken (or stories to tell) from your time aboard one of our yachts, we would like to share them on our social media pages and in our blog posts. We never mention names or dates in our posts, but your photos are great to use alongside our narrative. Please keep in touch and email anything you are happy for us to use.
We look forward to welcoming you to Devon soon.
