Where a course is cancelled by 7th Wave we will offer clients either a full refund of the course fee paid or an alternative course on the same or a different set of dates.

Safety is of the utmost importance on all 7th Wave courses and tuition sessions. Watersports and adventure activities are hazardous by their nature and participants, parents or guardians must accept that there are risks and the inevitable bumps and scrapes which happen during the excitement of activities. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. 7th Wave endeavours to manage the risks so far as we are able. We are a Royal Yachting Association Recognised Teaching Establishment. We provide high quality modern equipment and appropriate personal safety gear. We teach to national governing body recommendations.
