To help protect the Club and its Committee against the cost of a claim made against you following injury to someone else or damage to their property.
British Rowing requires its affiliated Clubs to protect themselves and their Committee in respect of their liability to others.
To help, British Rowing has allied itself with specialist providers of bespoke schemes, which provide coordinated cover to meet these requirements, including Member to Member liability.
Towergate Insurance which runs Elite Rowing insurance, have partnered with Perkins Slade (provider of the British Rowing liability scheme) to provide a combination for BR registered Clubs.
