Why choose us
Sailing close to shore or further afield
At SportsCover Direct, we split our Sailing Insurance offering into two groups; one for people sailing within 12 miles of the nearest coastline, and one for those going further out to sea.
This means those who are not venturing as far out to sea do not have to pay the same level of premium of those going further. Not only is the risk of a claim greater for those sailing further away from civilisation, but also the potential costs of rescuing a stricken sailing will be higher.
Please note that if you are sailing more than 12 miles from shore, we have a restriction on the areas we can provide protection. When choosing ‘Sailing (beyond 12 mile limit) read the important note about this sport.
On all sailing insurance policies liability cover is also excluded whenever a motor is in use.
