1. IMPORTANT ASPECTS TO CONSIDER
Jolly Good Times Sailing (JGTS) is a product based company that relies on natural experiences and activities that involves some demands of us as the arranger and you as a participant. Out on the ocean, coast or fjord the safety is always kept on a high level and it will without any warning make us change and re-route our scheduled plan in order to find alternatives to maintain the crew’s security and well being. From time to time our destinations will be more exposed than others and from time to time the weather puts us in the situation where we must change the route within a very limited time. If it is possible these changes will be announced in advance and we will rearrange the itinerary as close up to ordinary as possible without any effect on the price. This flexibility is a part of the package when you go sailing with us and for you as a customer will need to take this into consideration when you book a trip with us. Mother nature decides in the end.
