COVID-19 Policies & FAQs

COVID and the 2022 Sailing Season

Keeping you Safe.  The outbreak of COVID-19 is a highly unusual and rapidly evolving situation.  As a small business, we are doing our best to mitigate risks for our students and act in a socially responsible manner while continuing to offer our services during these unprecedented times.  As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we at Advantage Boating continue to monitor developments both locally, provincially and nationally.  We will also continue to follow official guidelines and recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Province of OntarioOttawa Public Health and Sail Canada.

We have aligned our cleaning procedures with the guidance of the relevant authorities.  Our COVID-19 policies are in place to ensure we can continue to get you out on the water in a safe and responsible way as we did over the past two summers.

Please note that instructors and students participating in our live-aboard course are required to be fully vaccinated.

We hope you will consider registering for one of our courses and we look forward to having you out on the water with us this summer!

COVID-19 Cancellation and Refund Policy for Ottawa & Kingston on-the-water courses

Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have adjusted our refund policy. If we need to cancel an Ottawa or Kingston on-the-water course because of COVID-19, you will have the option to (a) reschedule your course to an available class later in the summer, (b) leave the credit on your account so that it can be applied to a future Advantage Boating course or (c) have a refund issued.

If you cannot take your purchased course as a result of you being sick with COVID-19 you will have the option (with a doctor’s note and at least 48 hours notice) to (a) reschedule your course to an available class later in the summer or (b) leave the credit on your account so that it can be applied to a future Advantage Boating course.  Credit to your account for a COVID-19 Cancellation must be used within the year that your course was purchased.

We look forward to sailing with you soon.
