RISK STATEMENT

It must be recognised that sailing and powerboating is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By taking part in the Event, you agree and acknowledge that:

(i) You are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and you accept responsibility exposing yourself to such inherent risk whilst taking part in the Event;

(ii) You will comply at all times with the instructions of the Course Instructors particularly with regard to handling of boats, wearing of buoyancy aids or lifejackets and the wearing of suitable clothing for the conditions;

(iii) You accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by your own negligence;

(iv) You will not participate in the PB2 training if your ability to participate is impaired by alcohol, drugs or if you are otherwise unfit to participate;

CANCELLATION

You understand that the Course Chief Instructor may cancel or postpone the course at any stage in the event of bad weather, equipment failure, illness or otherwise.

MISCONDUCT

You understand that the Course Principal may exclude anyone from a particular session and evict anyone from the premises who refuses to comply with these Booking Terms or who misconducts themselves in any way or who causes damage or annoyance to other persons. 

Course places are extremely limited and there is currently very high demand upon our services. 

As such, if you book a course place with us, we offer a cancellation policy as detailed below:

 

 

You can cancel your course place(s) within 14 days of booking and receive a full refund, as long as the course is not due to start within 14 days at the time of cancellation.

 

 

If your course is due to start within the next 14-days, the course fee is 100% non-refundable unless we can sell your place(s), in which case we will refund your course fees in full, less a £25 administration fee.

 

 

If you request a cancellation more than 14 days after booking and more than 14 days before the start of the course, we will re-advertise your place(s). If we can find candidate(s) to fill your course place(s) more than 14 days before the course begins, we will issue you with a full refund, less a £25 administration fee. If we cannot find alternative candidate(s) to fill your place(s) within 14 days of the course start date, we will offer you the option of a 50% refund or the option to re-book with us on an alternative date (subject to availability).

 

 

If your course includes a self-guided eLearning component or virtual classroom sessions, the first date of accessing or joining these materials and/or electronic resources and/or remote classroom sessions will be deemed as the start date of the course, after which point the course fees will be non-refundable.

Please ensure that you leave enough time to arrive in advance of the start time for each session, including setting up and testing any computer/WiFi connections if your session is taught in a virtual environment. We cannot accommodate late entry to our sessions, either virtually or face-to-face, as this causes significant disruption to other candidates.

Any candidates who are not in attendance at the advertised start time for each session (as indicated in the joining instructions) will have their course place cancelled as soon as the session begins and will need to re-book this session (and any subsequent sessions) at additional cost.

The information you provide when booking will be used solely to process your booking and to attend to your safety for the duration of the course. By accepting these terms and conditions, you agree for Powerboat.LONDON to share your data with Souhtbank Sailing Club in order to process your course booking. Southbank Sailing club has a Data Privacy Policy which can be found on the Club notice board. Your information will be stored by Southbank Sailing Club and used in accordance with this policy.

The data will be stored on the RYA’s central database. This information allows the RYA to record your qualification, to update any records they may hold for you, and to verify or replace your certificate if required.
