CancelLation POlicy

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 cancel with greater than 7 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.  


If you cancel with 0-14 days’ notice, no refund will be given, but you do have options for rescheduling below.  


If you reschedule with greater than 14 days’ notice from the first day of your course, you may reschedule into any open course with no additional fees or waiting periods.  


If you need to reschedule within 0-13 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.
