Regatta Liability Program
Regattas are one of the most exhilarating events in the great sport of sailing but with all the excitement comes the chance of someone getting hurt. As an organizer, you take great care to make sure everything is planned and ready for race day but you could still end up facing a lawsuit from a bodily injury claim. Our Regatta Liability Insurance Program is ready to protect your event in case something goes wrong so you can focus on organizing a great race.
Experience You Can Trust
The staff at Upper Canada Commercial Insurance Group have decades of experience in marine liability as do the leading insurance companies we partner with.
On-Water Liability Protection
As a member of Sail Canada, your Ontario based regatta organization is eligible to obtain this important liability coverage at very reasonable rates, as it is often difficult to obtain "third party bodily injury" coverage for the on-water liability exposure.
Our program has no set policy period so you can join at any time and choose an annual renewal date that suits your organization. Just complete our application and send us your payment to get started.
All regatta organizations are required to be members in good standing of Sail Canada to be eligible for our program.
As a regatta organizer, you may already have liability coverage in place through your club, association or other affiliated organization. Our program gives you the piece of mind in knowing that excess coverage is provided should your existing coverage be exhausted by a serious claim.
Navigating Your Event's Risk
Our program is tailored for the unique risks inherent to regattas. Our Program provides a limit of $5,000,000 of liability protection against third party bodily injury claims and includes coverage for legal expenses to defend any lawsuits relating to bodily injury.
