Cancellation policy. Full refunds will be offered for cancellations that occur 30 days or more before a program's registration deadline (if no deadline, the first day of the program). Cancellations between 30 and 7 days will be offered a 50% refund or credit toward another class. Cancellations after the registration deadline or within 7 days of the first day of class (whichever comes first) will not be refunded.
Weather Cancellation: Generally, the Sailing School does not cancel classes. We sail in light rain and a variety of wind and weather conditions. We do stay ashore if conditions are dangerous, i.e. squall or thunder and lightning. In the event we cannot sail, we will present relevant topics and activities on land until the weather conditions improve. If Covid-19 prevents us from meeting indoors, we might need to reschedule a class. In that case, the make-up class will be July 16.
