General Recommendations :
 

Gear : In Greenland, we will be in total autonomy for the whole duration of the trip, as there are no harbours or towns on the Eastern Greenlandic coast. Having your own good quality gear and clothes is an important point to fully enjoy the voyage. This includes, of course, boots, shoes, and gloves.

For sailing into the fjords, and also for trekking, modern mountain clothing is fine.

For the Iceland / Greenland passages, we can provide some oilies if needed.

In Iceland there is no need for specific sailing clothes, we are only doing short sheltered coastal sailing.

Individual Life Jackets and Personal Locating Beacons are provided for the duration of each trip.

To secure your place on board, the payment process is as follows :


1. You are kindly asked to make a bank transfer or PayPal payment of 50% of the trip contribution at least three months before the fist leg's departure date. The balance  has to be paid once on board (or even before if you prefer to) in Euros.

2. When applicable : kitty/daily fees are estimated per day ; this includes food, beverages, fuel and harbour fees.
The daily fees are adjusted at the end of each trip to match the exact expenses (if we have to consume more or less fuel, stay longer in a marina, etc…). We will refund you the excess, or ask for additional contributions.
The daily fees have to be paid in cash when boarding ; the currency depends on the area of sailing (Euros, GBP or US Dollars).

3. Refunds : We will refund the money if, for any reason, we have to cancel part or the whole of the trip.

NB : Meteorological/Ice conditions issues are not a relevant reason for giving a refund.

If you decide to cancel your trip, we will refund you the deposit up to 3 months prior to departure, 50% of it up to 2 month prior to departure.

We do not refund any travel tickets.
