A boat insurance including public liability to cover any third party damage in the event of any incident


What is the minimum age?
– Must be of 18 years of age by the start of the competition.

– Is a Personal Public Liability insurance required?
Organisers will provide as part of the entry fee a personal Public Liability cover. This cover is only valid in between registered WPC guests and only during the hours of the competition each day. The cover provided does not include anything in relation to the boat. We therefore strongly advise competitors to ensure they too have their own Public Liability insurance to cover them outside of the hours of the competition and damages happening to any third party in addition to their normal boat insurance.
