Sailing is an active sport and can include potential risks to persons and property. Accidents are very unlikely and rare, but by joining Saga47swan Sailing as crew, crew are deemed to accept that they participate at their own risk and that Christian Lobel, Saga47swan Sailing and its servants do not accept any liabilities whatsoever for any personal injury or for any loss or damage to any personal effects or property in whichever manner this may be caused. All crew will have to sign the “Assumption of Risk” form.
The sailing yacht “Saga” is covered by a fully comprehensive marine insurance, but crew are responsible for their own personal insurance. It is strongly recommended for crew to arrange adequate cover for medical expenses, Evacuation & Repatriation, loss of personal effects, third party liability and cancellation etc.
By paying the first instalment (Deposit) of the “crew contribution” you agree that you have read and understood the following deposit/cancellation policy. Once your application to join as crew has been approved, you'll receive an email with details of the total crew contribution fee. The deposit is due immediately in order to officially reserve your crew space, and is non-refundable. If you give written notice of your cancellation 90 days before departure, you will not be billed for the final balance. If, after you've paid the final balance payment and still decide to cancel for whatever reason, and Saga47swan Sailing is able to re-book your berth, you will receive a full refund. You understand that within 90 days of departure, no refund or credit can be made for any reason including illness. You understand that there are no exceptions to this policy. You understand the importance of trip cancellation insurance, which is your own responsibility to obtain. By accepting the offer of a crew berth and paying the deposit of the “crew contribution” you agree to all of the above.
COVID RELATED ISSUES Vaccines Prior to boarding, you must be able to prove you have the vaccines required for entry into any countries we will visit on the route. Travel insurance There is a great deal of disruption to flights currently. We strongly urge you to take out suitable travel insurance that covers flight cancellation, and to take this out as soon as you have booked with us. Covid insurance We strongly advise you to take out separate insurance. This should cover you for the eventuality that you are in lock down, that you cannot travel, that you test positive for Covid at any point. Covid double vaccination Where border entry rules on international passages require it, all crew joining an event may be required to provide proof of COVID-19 double vaccination prior to departure. We do not discriminate against unvaccinated crew though as a sailing vessel we must follow any laws set down by the health authorities in each country.
