Sailing with Comprehensive Protection

The exhilaration of sailing, the camaraderie of club members, and the thrill of competition— these are the heart of every sailing club. However, amidst the joy of the sport, it's crucial to acknowledge the potential risks that can arise on and off the water. From unexpected accidents and injuries to damage to vessels and equipment, unforeseen events can disrupt club activities and lead to significant financial burdens.
That's why sailing club insurance is not merely a precaution but a fundamental necessity. It acts as a safety net, protecting your club's assets, members, and reputation from unexpected financial setbacks. With comprehensive coverage, you can ensure that your club continues to thrive, offering a safe and enjoyable environment for all who share a passion for sailing.

Sailing Club Insurance FAQ: Protect Your Club, Members & Assets | Primo

  • What is Sailing Club Insurance?

    Sailing club insurance is a specialised insurance package designed to protect sailing clubs, their members, and their assets from a range of risks associated with sailing activities, both on and off the water. It offers financial protection against accidents, injuries, property damage, and liability claims.
  • Why Do Sailing Clubs Need Insurance?

    Sailing, while enjoyable, carries inherent risks. Accidents can happen, boats can be damaged, and club members or third parties can be injured. Sailing club insurance acts as a safety net, covering legal costs, compensation claims, and repairs or replacements, ensuring the club's financial stability and continued operation.
  • What Does Public Liability Insurance Cover for Sailing Clubs?

    Public liability insurance is a crucial component of sailing club insurance. It protects your club against claims from third parties who may suffer injury or property damage due to your club's activities. This could include slips and falls on club premises, injuries sustained during races, or damage to third-party property caused by club boats.
  • Do I Need Member-to-Member Liability Insurance?

  • What Does Insurance Cover for Movement of Vessels Mean?

    Movement of vessels insurance covers your club when transporting or moving boats under its care, custody, or control.
