From the participant
Any cancellation by the participant before departure must be sent to us by registered letter with AR or by email with a signed attachment. In the event of cancellation of the stay by the participant, the following scale of deductions will be applied:

  • If the cancellation occurs more than 60 days from the date of the beginning of the stay, the deposit paid to XXXXXXXXXX remains acquired as a penalty.

  • If the cancellation occurs 60 to 30 days before departure: 60% of the total price of the stay is due to the organizer.

  • If the cancellation occurs within 30 days of departure: the full price of the stay is due to the organizer. In this case, no refund will be made to the participant.

Cancellation by the organizer
Until the last minute, a cancellation may occur in imposed circumstances and beyond our control (problems related to the boat: material breakage, crew injured and unable to conduct the cruise, administrative problems, etc.).
In these cases of cancellation, the organizer undertakes to offer the participant either a replacement cruise or a full refund (excluding airfare and insurance), but no other compensation will be granted.

Cancellation for reasons beyond the responsibility of XXXXXXXXXX and that of the participant
Strikes, cancellation of the flight, earthquakes or other natural disasters directly or indirectly preventing the realization of the stay. In these cases, which are beyond the control of XXXXXXXXXX and that of the participant, the financial burden will be shared equally between XXXXXXXXXX and the participant. XXXXXXXXXX will therefore reimburse the participant 50% of the amount of the cruise if it has been paid in full, under the conditions provided for in these General Conditions of Sale.


The participant is solely responsible for his transport to the place of embarkation on the PHILOTHEE sailboat (air, train, bus, taxi, etc.). XXXXXXXXXX cannot therefore be held responsible in the event of cancellation, delay, accident, relating to transport.
However, we draw your attention to the constraints inherent in charter flights, the airline company being able to cancel or postpone a departure within 24 hours before or after the scheduled date. Therefore, we recommend that you bring refundable and/or modifiable tickets for your journey, and avoid important appointments on the days following your trip. Airport or terminal changes may also occur.

Baggage During air transfers, your baggage is the responsibility of the airline. Any disputes during these transfers must be handled directly between the participant and the carrier. For the rest of the trip, your luggage remains your own responsibility.


XXXXXXXXXXXXXX is insured for professional civil liability with the companyXXXXXXXXXXX.
However, XXXXXXXXXXXXX cannot replace the individual civil liability that each participant must hold.

For travel, XXXXXXXXXXX asks the participant to be covered by travel assistance and repatriation insurance. Participants are asked to provide the organizer with a copy of the insurance certificate and to bring the original with them on their trip. Furthermore, it is strongly recommended that the participant take out cancellation insurance in the event of cancellation of the stay by them.


If unforeseen events or compelling circumstances involving the safety of the participant so require, XXXXXXXXXXXX reserves the right, during the circuits, directly or through its skipper, to modify the schedules or itineraries planned without the participant being able to claim to any compensation. Each participant must be aware that he may run risks of all kinds due to local conditions (distance from medical centres, lack of means of communication, poor state of certain infrastructures, etc.). He assumes them in his own name and in the name of his successors in full knowledge of the facts and undertakes not to hold XXXXXXXXXXXXX liable for them.

Participants must respect the instructions of the port, in particular it is forbidden to use the amenities on the quayside. Each port has amenities for users.

Participants must wear a safety life jacket for all trips on the deck and in the rubber dinghy, when the boat.

Minor children remain under the responsibility of their parents for the duration of boarding.

Participants declare that they are physically fit for the practice of sailing.

Each participant must have a valid identity card or passport.

The skipper reserves the right to oppose the boarding of any person who is not in order.

A good physical condition and a taste for community life are essential qualities to carry out the type of trips we offer. XXXXXXXXX reserves the right to expel at any time from a group a participant whose behavior can be considered as endangering the safety of the group or the well being of the other participants. No compensation would be due.

Neither XXXXXXXXXXXX nor the skipper of PHILOTHEE can be held responsible in the event of an accident during the duration of the stay, whether on board or during shore excursions, unless the fault of the organizer is proven;

Each participant must ensure that he meets the conditions for access to a country (passport and visa in good standing, if applicable). Neither the skipper nor XXXXXXXXX can be held responsible in the event that one or more participants are prohibited from entering a country;

The skipper is the only judge of the course and navigations. Neither he nor XXXXXXXXXX can be held responsible in the event of delays due to administrative contingencies, weather conditions, technical problems.

A delayed return cannot give rise to any indemnity or compensation. If the conditions do not allow access to the planned airport, the intermediate means of transport remain the responsibility of the participant.


Any dispute that may arise will be systematically the subject of an attempt at amicable conciliation. If this does not succeed, it will fall under the jurisdiction of the courts.
