      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Gowrie Insurance is the best I have found.

 

I have their one design policy that covers me for regattas but the do offer individual regatta insurance.

Regatta Liability Insurance was invented by the Signal Program 35 years ago when a club was sued for a fatality on their sailboat race course, and they found out that they, and all other clubs in the U.S. did not have coverage for such an event. We have the longest track record, handled more claims (even some of the highly publicized ones of this past year), and do it at the lowest premium (20% less than the competition). Our insurers are well known, Travelers and Liberty Mutual who both have extensive marine insurance track records and are very easy to deal with. http://www.thedavidagency.com/oldsite/signal/index.htm

 

And don't bust my chops saying I should buy an ad, I'm just answering the question. Also we keep our premiums low to help out clubs and racers by not spending our money ads and sponsorship programs, like others do.

Thanks Glenn, for speaking out. I was going to promote your product, but you beat me to it.

 

Our local Hobie Fleet (32, Va Beach) has been using the Signal Insurance program for many years--it is exactly what we needed and priced very well. We have shopped around over the years when new programs are introduced, but have always stuck with the David Agency.

+ 1.

 

This agency is very good and i have used them over the years. I had a hurricane claim for my starboat which they handled quickly and fairly.

In the biz as well,

 

Basically any carrier that writes marinas, boat clubs, yacht clubs should be able to add regatta liability to your exsisting policy for a surprisingly low premium. If not, you should not be writing your entitiy with them in the first place.

I are an underwriter. Some yacht clubs think they can put a waiver in the entry form, refer to RRS Rule 4 and avoid all exposure. I disagree.
