We're looking to host our first regatta in about 10 years at CU Boulder, but have been told we can't do it at Union res unless we get the event insured. It seems like water events are pretty hard to find insurance for, so any suggestions on where to turn here would be much appreciated.

In 10 years the rules will be different.

Your club should have a liability insurance now. Check that.

If you talk to an insurance company or broker they will create a policy for you - whether you need it or not. $$$$$$$$$$$$

Try this

It is really simple and  at reasonable cost.

Insurance isn't cheap, but its a necessity.  We hold our regattas on county property (our clubhouse isn't on the water) and last year the county increased its requirements for insurance and it just about killed our club. They doubled the required amounts (went from 1mil/2mil to 2mil/4mil) and it more than tripled our expense. We ended up going the US Sailing route. They go through Gowrie. They were easy to work with. So far, I would recommend them without hesitation.
