a.    The minimum number of bookings required for the Aquasports Event to take place has not been reached 8 weeks before it is due to begin, and We will endeavour to inform You of such cancellation not less than 4 weeks before Aquasports is due to begin;

and/or

b.    circumstances arise which are beyond our reasonable control, in which case We will endeavour to inform You as soon as reasonable possible.

We are liable to you for the proper performance of the obligations under this Agreement irrespective of whether such obligations are to be performed by us or by other suppliers of services unless the failure or the improper performance is due neither to any fault of ours nor to that of another supplier of services for example it is instead because:

Your obligations

6.    The Applicant, or their parent or guardian, agrees:

(a) to pay the balance of the price of Aquasports not less than 8 weeks before the Aquasports Event is due to begin. Payment should be made by cheque (or other money order) made payable to “Aquasports”. The balance is made up of the total price of a place on the Aquasports Event stated in the brochure less the initial deposit sent with the application form. This balance shall be sent to the Aquasports “Campers Coordinator” at the address provided in the application form, unless other directions for payment are given. In the even of non-payment by the due date, the leaders of Aquasports may cancel this agreement forthwith and the deposit shall be forfeited; and

(b) to communicate at the earliest opportunity in writing to us any failure or other concern that you have that we have not properly performed (or are performing) the Contract.
