Does my club affiliation to British Rowing provide me with liability insurance cover?

No, you do not receive any insurance cover through your British Rowing affiliation. As an affiliated club you are required to ensure that you have adequate and appropriate insurance to cover the activities of your club and its members and to protect your club committee. A bespoke combined liability insurance policy for British Rowing clubs can be provided by Perkins Slade who will discuss your needs and advise you. For more information please click here.

Our club has worked hard to ensure that we conform to British Rowing best practice through their accreditation scheme and encouraging our club members to join British Rowing. Will we benefit from this?

Yes, Perkins Slade will provide a discount on your combined liability policy if your club is Clubmark or Explore Rowing accredited, and a further discount if over 75% of your club members are individually registered British Rowing members.

We strongly advise clubs to also take out cover for damage to their premises, property, boats and equipment. A bespoke policy suitable for your needs can be arranged by Chris Moon, Elite Rowing Insurance, who can be contacted on 01892 509081 or email chris.moon@towergate.co.uk

My club is organising an event were members of the public will be invited to participate. Is this covered under the combined liability insurance?

British Rowing does not provide any liability cover for clubs and this should be arranged by clubs individually. British Rowing has agreed a bespoke insurance cover, to protect the needs of clubs, and details of this can be seen under the clubs page of this website.
