Towing Your Boat In Europe
You should check with your insurer that your boat and trailer is covered for any accidental damage or theft during the journies to and from the event, while the boat is aboard the ferry and also for sailing and racing when you arrive. Noble Marine offer 30 days use in Europe as standard on all dinghy policies and cover damage to the boat whilst in transit by road and sea.
Some regattas will require a higher than normal limit of liability, which should be stated in the sailing instructions.
Please check your policy carefully and contact your insurance company, well in advance of your departure, if you require an extension to your policy.
When you travel abroad you should always consider buying travel insurance, however you may not be aware that many standard travel policies will exclude cover while you are racing.
As many of our clients travel abroad to compete in a variety of foreign regattas, we have been frequently asked if we are able to recommend a travel policy to cover racing.
The Noble Marine Travel Insurance page will direct you to the web site of CNA Insurance Company Limited who have custom-built pages for clients of Noble Marine, providing the usual benefits of a travel insurance policy plus an optional extension for sail racing on an amateur basis.
