Rowing Club Insurance specialists IRCM have announced the launch of new liability covers for their rowing club clients.  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 clubs.

IRCM founder and veteran rower, Pat Ward said “Clubs have informed us that they are finding it difficult to obtain protection against liabilities arising from allegations of Abuse.  As a specialist broker who understands the sport and the requirement for affiliated clubs to strictly follow British Rowing’s guidelines, including safeguarding principles, we have been able to arrange this important extension with our insurers”.

Pat went on to say “Of equal importance for clubs is the addition of low-cost cover for Club Trustees and Officers as well as a Fidelity Guarantee option.  The bonus for Club officials is that all Club cover – racing craft, support vessels and equipment as well as property and liabilities can now be insured under the umbrella of a single, leading Marine insurer”
