Terms and conditions

Course location

1. There are currently two choices: a. Use a suitable Covid cleaned commercial property such as a village hall or (sailing) club. We often use Stokenham’s hall. Any costs can be shared between all students and we charge them at cost. Stokenham is very local to us so we deduct £5 from the cost of each session if you do the travelling. b. Depending on the Covid situation we may be able to use other suitable facilities. In that case we will travel to you but we charge for our travel where this exceeds a round trip of ten miles and the total travel time is less than about an hour. We charge 45p per mile and our normal hourly rates may be applicable for longer journeys. We don’t mind where we teach but the location must meet our basic criteria which include: space for people, equipment, chartwork (on most courses), note taking etc. good light and heating and, in these Covid days, good ventilation and cleaning. Don’t forget the human factor (suitable chairs, tables, tea and coffee preparation, toilets and parking). We can bring equipment such as a laptop and digital projector.


1. Devon School of Navigation courses are priced per person. The minimum charge for a course assumes two people (i.e. it is double the ‘per person’ charge in our price list). For two or more people the ‘per person’ rates apply. This is not the case when we are on a ‘per session’ basis since, in that case, you are paying for our time. 2. For a class size of three or more we discuss your requirements in detail and can often arrange a package price.


1. Once an enrolment form has been completed and an invoice issued the student is liable for the full amount due. a. The invoiced amount is payable in full prior to the start of a course. 2. In the event that Devon School of Navigation have to cancel a course our liability is limited to the refund of all monies paid to us apart from items purchased for and handed over to the student (e.g. RYA Course packs). We will not consider any claim for damages or consequential loss as a result of cancellation. Handouts issued to that point and RYA student packs purchased by the student will remain their property. 3. Course fees and other invoiced amounts that have been paid are not normally refundable if a student has to withdraw or cancel though we will always do our utmost to change course schedules.. a. Any items purchased by Devon School of Navigation for that student will be the property of the student once they have been paid for. b. We will always do our utmost to accommodate requests to change a course schedule. Any agreed time extension will be for three months maximum unless a longer period is mutually agreed. Thereafter any support and marking will be at our normal hourly rate. Please contact us for more information or to discuss any of these points. Click here for more information about this website.
