Payment of the fee in full confirms your place on a course.  The Silva Navigation School reserves the right to cancel a course should numbers be insufficient to make the course viable.  Whilst we will endeavour to give good notice of this, occasionally we may have to make the decision near the start of your course.  The Silva Navigation School cannot be held responsible for any additional costs you may occur by the cancellation of a course.  You are strongly advise to take out travel insurance.  Should the Silva Navigation School cancel a course, any fees can be transferred to another course or refunded should no alternative prove suitable.

If you cancel a booking less than six weeks before the weekend starts and there is no waiting list, you will loose your entire course fee. If there is a waiting list then £30 will be retained for administrative purposes. If you cancel more than six weeks before the start of the weekend, you will lose just £20 of the booking fee for administration.
