Pre-information - How we operate

Keep Sailing Limited operates in two different ways.



Keep Sailing are booking agents for marine organisations such as sailing clubs and watersports centres. We take bookings for these organisations and sometimes we help them find staff or provide other services. But the courses are delivered by the organisations using their governing bodies recognition. You are entering into a contract with the organisations you are booking at. Every course description and follow up email related to the course will have statement ( ‘a’ below) describing who you are booking with. For example if you book a course at Thames Sailing Club;

A) All courses booked at location: ‘Thames Sailing Club’ (TSC) booked with Keep Sailing Limited (KS) are delivered by Thames Sailing Clubs Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Recognised Training Centre (RYC) status. Keep Sailing Limited are acting as booking agents for Thames Sailing Club.



Courses or Events booked without statement ‘a’ above are booked directly with Keep Sailing Limited at the centre/location on the booking confirmation and we organise and deliver the course, inline with our policies.

Terms and Conditions


  1. All cancellations and transfers are subject to a £25 admin fee.

  2. Bad Weather

    We will always do our best to run the course so if it’s raining or just general bad weather the course will go-ahead. However we do reserve the right to cancel or reschedule the course. Sometimes it’s just too windy to teach sailing (or not windy enough!) or the river conditions make it unsafe. In this event there will be a full refund of the course cost, we will do a pro rata refund if the course is part way through. i.e if we have managed to run 1 day of a 2 day course a 50% refund.
