When you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking. That means we are unable to offer that space to anyone else.
If you cancel that space we are likely to incur a loss. We will have already made commitments to staff and we may have turned away other bookings. We are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss.
We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations. If we did not do this we would have to put up our prices for everyone.
Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.
Course Cancellation InsuranceYou can take out insurance to cover the cost of your course against cancellation through CancelSure. Guide cost is £12 for the first £100 of cover and then £6 per additional £100 of cover.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the private session with my kids Arran and Freya yesterday. Leah was brilliant with them, and gave them a really great experience.
We'll most certainly be back.
I just wanted say thanks so much for organising our sailing lesson yesterday. We had such a fun time, and such amazing weather too. Tom was brilliant. My son, Angus is a sailing convert, so we'll definitely come out again in the summer.
