Boston Sailing Center has cancellation and rescheduling policies in place to properly staff and plan for your course. We ask that you give us enough notice (as listed below) to cancel or reschedule your course. When a course fills, we often must turn away new students, and cannot make up for lost revenue due to last minute cancellations. We do understand that things do come up and we will make every effort to accommodate you within our listed policies.
If you are a Macro Student, see Macro Cancellation + Rescheduling Policy.
Course Cancellation Policy
Cancelling with greater than 30 days' notice
If you cancel with greater than 30 days’ notice from the first day of your course, you will receive a refund. If you paid with a credit card, BSC will retain a 3% fee of the total amount paid. Cash and check payments will be refunded in full.
Cancelling with 0-29 days' notice
If you cancel with 0-29 days’ notice to the first day of your course, no refund will be given, but you do have options for rescheduling below.
Course Rescheduling Policy
Rescheduling with greater than 30 days' notice
If you reschedule with greater than 30 days’ notice from the first day of your course, you may reschedule into any open course with no additional fees or waiting periods.
Rescheduling with 0-29 days' notice
If you need to reschedule within 0-29 days before the first day of class, we can reschedule you on a space available basis. This means that if there is an extra space in a course, you may take it at no additional cost. You will go onto a waitlist for the course you would like to schedule into, and BSC will contact you if the space is still available.
Space available students will be officially added and confirmed to a course no sooner than 7 days prior to the first day of class.
Note: Cruising and Coastal Passage Making courses tend to sell out, so space available rescheduling is not a reliable option.
