Other useful information

Cancellations
Should you need to cancel your attendance please email as soon as possible so that your place can be offered to others. If it is possible to fill your place from waiting-lists, you will be offered a place on another course (subject to availability) and your payment moved to that course. Occasionally Filey Sailing Club itself may need to cancel a course, should this occur effort will be made to schedule new dates, should these not be acceptable a full refund will be given.

Bad Weather / Lost Days
Instructors will tend to work around any pockets of bad weather and there should be sufficient time within the 2 days to deliver the course successfully. In the unlikely event that a course loses multiple days for bad weather then Filey Sailing Club will make efforts to provide further sailing opportunity to complete the course.

Safety
Water sports can be hazardous by their nature and participants; parents or guardians must accept that there are some inherent risks regarding potential 'bumps' and 'scrapes' which happen during the thrills and spills of fast moving activities. Filey Sailing Club has a terrific safety record and continues to be inspected and approved by the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) as a recognised Training Centre. We teach to RYA recommendations and guidelines and we use qualified experienced volunteers.

Insurance

During the course you will be classed as a club member and will enjoy member to member insurance that aims to protect you, as a member, from any claims from other members for items such as boat damage.
