Re: Fair Winds Sailing Course BVI
I will not recommend Fair Wind to anyone wanting to do a bareboat charter. I was in email correspondence with the company since October, getting questions answered, getting quotes, etc for a charter in the USVI. We decided on dates and a boat. I stated in several emails that we wanted to finalize the trip, how does payment work, deposits, refunds, etc. and they never gave me an answer. They never said you need X amount of a deposit paid in this way by this date to reserve the boat. I emailed again over a week ago saying we want to finalize how does payment work, no response. I emailed again last night saying just checking you got my email. I get a response this morning, one sentence - Sorry we no longer have any yachts available for the date we had selected. I was livid! I called and spoke to him and read him email after email where I stated I want to finalize and never in any of the responses he sent did he ever give me instructions on how to do that and then they book the boat out from under us. My husband is in the military and is currently away from the family for a year and this was the one trip for us to see him and now with only a month to go until his leave time, we have to scramble and plan something else. Make sure you keep everything in writing so you have proof as to what was and was not said!
