Winter trips in the period December 1 - March 16:
Of course, these trips can only continue if you can sail safely and instructively. That means that a trip through De Zeezeilers can be canceled. We try to do this at least 24 hours in advance, based on official weather forecasts. The travel sum is then refunded immediately. Considerations for canceling a trip are: 1) the temperature during the day is below -1º Celcius for a long time, 2) there is ice on the water. 3) the wind forecast is more than 7Bf (longer than 50% of the reserved time). If the trip has to be stopped due to weather conditions, the part of the travel sum will be refunded. The skipper always stops the trip in consultation with the office. That decision can also be taken just before the journey.
If, due to (weather) conditions, the ship cannot return to the embarkation point or departure point in time?
We will do everything in our power to get you on board at the agreed time and at the departure or departure point. This can be delayed. No refund or additional travel costs will be reimbursed by De Zeezeilers if a different means of transport is chosen than the ship you are sailing on. At distances greater than 600 zm, such as mile makers or a crossing, the arrival date is a point to take into account. There are many obstacles, of which the weather and current are the biggest. Tips: Always take this into account from the first day of departure. Take the favorable weather if you can! The space comes at the end. Take one or two extra days extra before you fly or a flexible ticket. For travel abroad it is useful to share flight information as quickly as possible on the "Forum" during your trip.
In the unlikely event that you are dissatisfied. Then first inform your instructor or employee immediately and preferably in advance. This will if possible, usually through the office, solve the problem. If the problem is not solved you can always contact the office at the end of the trip. This is the shortest blow and we will certainly think along with you and look for a good solution. If it is not yet possible to clarify the problem at this stage, we recommend that you write this down on paper and send it to the management. If you are dissatisfied with this result, you can of course forward the complaint to the CWO or other organization.
