Terms and Conditions

Windward Sailing Conditions of Business for Skippered Charter

Windward Sailing hereinafter known as the Company

  1. Bookings must be made on the form provided and accompanied by the appropriate deposit. The Company is not bound to accept any booking and there will be no contract until the deposit is received and cleared. Telephone reservations will be held for five working days until the company receives the booking form and deposit.
  2.  The balance of the fee is payable in full not less than 28 days before the commencement of the charter. If such balance is not paid when due the company may then, or at any time whilst the fee remains unpaid and without notice to you, deem such non-payment to be notice of your cancellation of the booking.
  3.  Cancellation. All payments are non-returnable except in the charter of cancellation of the charter by the Company or the preferred yacht being unavailable and there is no suitable replacement. In either of these cases all monies will be returned to the Client. No further liability of any sort shall be attached to the Company. To avoid cancellation loses we strongly advise you to take out any necessary insurance cover.
  4.  The company reserve the right to change the vessel used on any charter if for any reason the vessel advertised is not available.
  5.  All Company craft are insured against accident and third party liability but individual clients are not insured against personal injury, loss or responsibility for cancellation. In your own interest you are strongly advised against these contingencies.
  6.  The Client shall indemnify the Company, its servants, agents, or employees against any liability whatsoever in respect of personal injury to the client, damage or loss of effect for the duration of the charter, howsoever arising. Personal insurance against these contingencies is recommended but it is the responsibility of the Client.
  7.  In all cases whilst onboard the decision of the skipper shall be final. Whilst every effort is made to give Clients the maximum possible sea time, the Company's craft will not be put to sea if, in the opinion of the skipper, weather or other conditions render it imprudent to do so.
  8.  The clients must not themselves or allow any person onboard to commit any act contrary to the laws of the Country in which the vessel is operating. If such an act is committed the agreement between the Client and Company shall terminate immediately without prejudice to any right of the company or the owners of the yacht. The client alone shall bare all resulting responsibilities and shall alone answer to the appropriate authorities for any act which is in contravention of the laws of the Country concerned.
