Yachting and critical illness cover

Generally, when it comes to critical illness cover for yachting and sailing there is never any issues in getting cover, especially if you only participate in the activity recreationally. In most cases we find that with yachting, you can get critical illness cover without having to provide too many details about your yachting activities- unless you take part in it competitively or in particularly dangerous locations. 

Yachting and income protection

Similarly to yachting critical illness cover, income protection policies for yachting are usually offered without any premium loadings unless you participate in yachting competitively. You can expect to be asked about any recent accidents which have caused you to have time off work. If you have had to have time off as a result of yachting activities you can expect premiums to increase as a reflection of the chance risk.
