Typical information the providers will want to know
Each insurer has their own way of measuring risk, therefore each insurer will view things differently. There are a few variants that the insurers will consider when it comes to covering sailing. For example, LV, one of the leading UK insurers will ask the following questions:
- Type of sailing, e.g. recreational or cross Atlantic racing?
- What crafts do you sail?
- Which areas do you sail to?
- Number of crew members?
Based on the responses to these questions, the insurer can then provide a final decision, with the worst case scenario being an increase to the premium (unless you are a professional sailor where it’s possible the insurer could decline cover altogether).
