Our Land Yachting Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst taking part in land yachting abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for land yachting, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst taking part in land yachting in the UK, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

            What does Land Yachting Insurance cover me for?

            At SportsCover Direct, we may not be able to prevent actual accidents from happening, however our Land Yachting Insurance can provide you with compensation if you suffer an injury and are unable to work.

            Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to safeguard you whilst taking part in land yachting in the UK, including competitions and events. It comes with benefits such as personal accident, personal liability as well as the option to protect your income should you be forced off work with an injury. 

            If you are going away, our Sports Travel Insurance policy is the cover you need providing protection against flight delays, cancellations and medical emergencies to name a few.

            It is strongly recommended to take out suitable Land Yachting Insurance before heading up into the wind with your yacht.

            Why do you need Sand Yachting Insurance?

            Land yachting, also known as sand yachting is classified as hazardous sport as it has the potential of reaching very high speeds, which increases the chance of accidents and injuries.

            The idea of being carried along by gusty winds while staying low to the ground sounds like a thrilling, adrenaline-packed activity, especially when you try it for the first time.

            With high speeds and exposed yachts, the list of possible accidents is quite long, but some of the most common include the yacht tipping over and causing injuries to the head and limbs. Making sure that you take out personal insurance to protect yourself against those unwanted accidents is therefore recommended.
