Kick Ass

Insurance for long haul short handed races.

Recommended Posts

We dropped contents insurance years ago. Same reasoning as wheels.

Next thing on the list is sell the cars.

Just check with your insurer that if your contents (electrical appliances) causes the fire, is your house covered. I know if your renting and your gear causes damage then you can be liable for the damage.

Worth checking anyway.

I'm with Tower, which I have no problem with BUT they only insure within 50miles of coast. So after reading this forum got in contact with Baileys Senior Risk Advisor, stating shorthanded racing, carbon rig 4 years old, 1982 Ross 930 and RNI entry. Got the following reply  ...

 

"Unfortunately due to the age of the boat, type of vessel and proposed racing cover it's not one we would be able to arrange cover for. Sorry we can't be of assistance."

 

So for me it looks like offshore insurance with either Pantaenius or Northern Reef would prefer a local crowd, tried talking to Club Marine but they said no to the carbon mast.

 

And no I'm not dodgy, two claims on household insurance over 30 years insured.

 

Have just put in application to Nautical, see how that goes.

Spoke to Nautical today and were very helpful!

 

Have a 200nm from shore limit and offer race cover, $1000 excess standard and $1500 racing which is fair with respectable premium that blows most other insurers out the water.

 

Just working through the policy wording and waiting for a few more quotes to come through.

That is the same response I was getting and was a bit dis heartening hearing our boat is to old to insure :-/.

 

We went with Baileys initially as they were one of the only companies offering a blue water extension when we did the delivery from Sydney.
