J World Annapolis

Terms & Conditions


All of our students must complete a standard release of liability at the start of each course.


A deposit of $200 is required to hold your enrollment for a course.  

Payment for classes are due no later than 30 days prior to the start of the course.  If you have provided a credit card for your deposit, your balance will be automatically charged to the same card on the due date, unless we are instructed otherwise.

For registrations inside of 30 days, payment in full is required at the time of registration.

Course enrollment is NOT confirmed until tuition IN FULL is received.


30-90 DAYS PRIOR TO COURSE DATE:  A student may cancel their course enrollment and request a refund of tuition with no penalty.   

2-30 DAYS PRIOR TO COURSE DATE:  No refunds will be given.  A student may reschedule their course for a later date, pending space availability.

CANCELLATIONS WITHIN 48 HOURS OF A COURSE ARE SUBJECT TO A CANCELLATION FEE OF 50% of TUITION.  A student may apply the remainder to another scheduled class, pending space availability.  Payment IN FULL for the rescheduled class is required to confirm the new course enrollment.


Only J World Annapolis may cancel a lesson for weather-related reasons. They include conditions that are deemed unsafe or un-sailable.  Examples include the presence of lightning in the area, sustained winds over 18 knots, or a complete lack of wind.  

Weather cancellations are determined on a day-by-day basis.  Students should report to J World each day of their class prepared to sail. If part of a course is cancelled due to weather, students are invited to return at a later date to complete the course, and/or sail the number of days lost.

Illegal Acts and Drug/Alcohol Usage

No illegal drugs, substances, objects or contraband may be brought onboard J World boat during a course. Any person found in the possession of or under the influence of any illegal substance will be removed from the course and vessel immediately regardless of location, and all tuition forfeited.  

Conduct Aboard School Vessels

If you conduct yourself so as to endanger the vessel or any person or property on board, or behave in a disorderly manner or in a manner to which other students may reasonably object, we reserve the right to take such measures to prevent continuation of such conduct, including your removal from the vessel. In such an instance, no refunds will be issued and J World Annapolis will not reimburse, or in any way be held responsible for any costs incurred for travel or any other expenses. You agree to abide by the orders of the coach in command of the school vessel at all times.
