    1. HI Reigh, That is awesome! Would love to get you out on the water this summer. Currently, if we need to cancel due to COVID restrictions we would provide a full refund. If things are a go for this summer then our usual cancellation policy would be in place. You can find those at https://sailnelson.com/terms-conditions/. Be sure to book early as we are selling out with lots of interest! Keep in touch, Penny
