Rental conditions

Weather and wind

The level of your sailing experience determines wich circumstances are suitable for you to go on the water. The rental company reserves the right to decide to keep the boat ashore without resitation of the rental fee when a lack of experience becomes evodent. This serves to prevent damage to the boat as well as personal injuries. Starting at wind force 7 bft. no one is allowed to sail. The customer accepts the risk of bad weather the moment he makes a reservation fo a boat. Hard wind or rain are not considered a reason to cancel the rental or to reduce or return the rental fee.


Cancellation regulations

In the event of cancellations up until a month before the agreed rental period, 50% of the rental fee will be charged.
