F. A. Q.
Q. Do you run courses in Winter?
A. Yes! We’re lucky to have great weather all year round although we do stop all courses for three weeks between December and January to take a break ourselves.
Q. Will I be able to get a taxi from the airport to the marina/my accomodation?
A. Yes. You will find many taxis waiting outside the airport. Alternatively, you can let us know that you require a taxi and we can sort it out for you.
Q. Do you recommend any hotels?
A. Yes. We know that many people chose to take a holiday after their course and extend their stay in Malta – we think it’s a brilliant idea! We would recommend Kennedy Nova Hotel. Do not forget to input the Promo Code MASA when booking.
Q. I arrive one day before my course. May I sleep on board the night between my arrival and the start of the course.
A. Yes, you may sleep on board at €15 per person/night. You will be able to board at 19:00 as it is likely that the vessel will be in use during the day
Q. What should I bring to my practical course?
A. Sunblock (Factor 50), hat, sunglasses. In Summer, you’ll need mostly light clothing and a light jacket for the rare occasions were it gets cold in the evenings on board. In winter, do not forget waterproof trousers, a waterproof jacket and the correct footwear.
Q. Is accommodation on board included in the price?
A. Yes. You are expected to sleep on board for the duration of the course
Q. Will I be sharing a cabin?
A. Most likely, unless the course is not entirely full. Each course takes up to 5 students and our Bavaria 36 has three cabins. if you would like a cabin to yourself, you will need to pay for the second space you are taking up.
Q. Do you provide vegetarian options for course lunches?
A. Yes, but we will need to know if you require vegetarian meals in advance. Please do not leave this to the last minute as we will already have victualled the vessel, and many meals include non-vegetarian ingredients.
Q. Do you cater fro special dietary requirements?
A. Yes, but as above, please do not leave it till the last minute to inform us.
Q. I’ve paid my place on the course but I’d like to cancel now. May I?
A. You may, although your refund is not guaranteed. Depending on how close to the course date you cancel, we will be able to give you a percentage refund unless we find someone to fill you place, in which case we will refund you in full.
We will not be able to refund you if you decide to leave the course once this has begun.
