British Rowing teams up with Elite Rowing Insurance

Posted: 25/07/2013


As many of you will be aware, our Elite Rowing Insurance Scheme has been providing the rowing fraternity with excellent cover at competitive premiums for over twenty years.

Lovat are pleased to announce that, following discussions with British Rowing, an agreement has been reached whereby British Rowing will give their full endorsement to our Elite Rowing Insurance Scheme. Lovat will offer Discounted Premium rates, available on our dedicated online "Quote & Buy" web page, to all individual British Rowing Members who own their boats.

Lovat will also endow British Rowing with a share of their income derived from insuring Member Clubs who are not already insured under the Scheme. These funds will be directed towards initiatives that British Rowing deem fit.

Navigators and General (N&G), who underwrite the insurance scheme, will also provide annual sponsorship funding for British Rowing which will contribute towards the development of the sport of rowing.

Kate Burt CEO, British Rowing, says
“British Rowing is delighted to be announcing the new partnership with Elite Rowing Insurance. We are world leaders in our sport and aim to provide world class benefits for our members and clubs, which this scheme will offer.”

Chris Moon, Account Director, Elite Rowing, says
“I have been involved with rowing insurance for many years and enjoyed developing our relationship with both clubs and individual rowers.  The endorsement of Elite Rowing Insurance by British Rowing is welcomed and will, I am sure, bring the benefits of our scheme to a wider audience.”

Sarah Winckless, Ambassador to Elite Rowing and Olympic Medallist, says
“I have enjoyed a long term relationship with Lovat and their Elite Rowing Insurance scheme and have always found that this has served me well.  I am delighted that British Rowing has given their full endorsement to the Elite Rowing scheme.”
