Marine Insurance specialists IRCM have announced the launch of new liability covers for marine-based clubs. Not only do the extensions provide vital cover that clubs, particularly those dealing with young persons and vulnerable adults, require but they also provide a seamless solution for rowing clubs, sailing clubs and watersports centres.
