Windfoil New Zealand takes the safety and wellbeing of sailors seriously. While all care is taken by clubs in planning events, whether to race or not is the sailor's decision and accidents can happen. Windfoiling is a higher risk form of sailing to an Optimist or Laser so we have made 3rd Party Insurance mandatory for racing in New Zealand.
Through our affiliation with Yachting New Zealand Windfoil New Zealand members can access the Full Equipment and Third Party cover offered by AON.
Aon can also arrange cover for only Third Party Liability and damage to boards whilst racing and in transit for local and overseas regattas.
Members can apply for this using the following link (see Overseas Transit and Regatta Insurance) and completing the short form proposal that comes through to a monitored inbox. Aon will then seek terms from Insurers accordingly,
You will need to specify which events you need cover for. You can pick multiple events – e.g. the full Windfoil NZ Summer Series.
This may provide a cheaper option for members who want to race but don’t want or need the Full Insurance option on their own equipment.
You can also ask your own insurance provider or broker if they offer similar cover.
