Special Package Conditions

  • Discounts for Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper Training Packages can be taken on the overall total cost of all individual elements in the course (except sea survival courses). These discounts cannot be taken in addition to the discount for booking 3 weekends (ie only one discount can apply)
  • To qualify for the discount, training packages must be booked with all elements paid for in advance in accordance with standard booking conditions. The package may be booked with elements scheduled for specific dates, or with some or all elements left open-dated. If elements are scheduled with specific dates the customer cannot change the date except with the agreement of Elite Sailing and on payment of a change fee (currently £30 per change). If the change request is at less than 6 weeks notice it is unlikely to be agreed. If elements are left open dated, the customer has to contact Elite Sailing to reserve specific dates – subject to availability at the time and subject to payment of any adjustment for high season prices or annual price rises.
  • Once a package is agreed and paid for, additional items may be added at any time before the training is completed – and qualify for the discount. Once the training is completed, additional items may only be added at the standard price.
  • No discount is available for sea survival courses since these fees are paid to another training provider.
