  • Catamaran sailing
  • Sailing (inshore)
  • Yachting (inshore)

If you're still unsure if we can cover your chosen sport, water sport or activity, don't hesitate to call us. It's free to call and we might be able to add cover for your activity to your policy for a small premium.

If you decide to take up any other forms of sailing, double check with our policy wording to find out which Extra Additional Cover Pack they fall into. With prices starting from ** for Pack 2, *** for Pack 3 and **** for Pack 4.
