RYA extends insurance policy to include stand up paddle boarders

The RYA is delighted to announce that the free third party insurance it provides to all RYA windsurfing members through RYA member partner Bishop Skinner Marine, has now been extended to include stand-up paddleboards (SUP).

Currently if you nominate windsurfing as one of your boating interests when you join the RYA, you will automatically receive third party liability insurance for up to £3,000,000 covering your windsurfing activities absolutely free! With the introduction of this new extension to cover these members will now also be covered when using paddleboards as well.

“This is a great addition to the RYA member benefits portfolio”, commented Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.  “We have seen a great number of our members, particularly our windsurfing members, taking up paddleboarding so being able to extend the free cover we provide is a real boon.”

Paul Birch, MD, Bishop Skinner Marine commented: “We are always looking for ways in which we can help RYA members enjoy themselves safely. It’s important for us to ensure our products keep up with the needs of RYA members and provide solutions that keep up with the new ways in which they are taking to the water. We’re delighted that we have been able to provide this valuable benefit”

The free third party insurance not only covers you when you’re out on the water for recreational purposes but also when racing or undertaking tuition or coaching as an RYA qualified coach/instructor.

“Accidents can happen out on the water so having the added peace of mind of free third party insurance, whether you’re windsurfing or paddleboarding, alongside the unlimited free boating legal advice that we offer our members could prove invaluable”, Conor added.
