Australian Sailing Insurance
I have had a few questions regarding the insurance that is offered and do you need it and what does it cover.
If you plan to go sailing it is recommended that you confirm with your insurance provided if sailing is covered and for what.
The alternative is to make use of the cover provided via Australian Sailing. Personal Injury Insurance for any current financial members of an Australian Sailing Affiliated Club is available. This Insurance program provides benefits to registered members of Australian Sailing Affiliated Clubs who, through injury or accident, incur financial loss and who otherwise have not received assistance. Cover is Automatic for any financial member of an Australian Sailing Affiliated Club and for participants of an accredited Australian Sailing course when registered in the national database. More details
If you or your crew are not members of an affiliated club then you can also get cover by purchasing a sail pass. You will then be covered for the date of the sail pass.
Replacement Club App.
With the demise of Red Book App, RMYS looked at a number of options and have gone down the track of using Member Point app which other clubs on the bay have also adopted. The advantages to this platform is its integration with RMYS data base, Australian Sailing and Top Yacht. This app will allow members to update their details, get into the website, allocate crew to crew declaration as well as find crew and advertise for crew places available on their boats. It also also linked to Sail Pass which will allow owners to make contact directly with this group.It also has direct link to the RMYS social media pages and a club communication portal is being developed for early 2021 that will replace the RMYS facebook group. This app is still under going testing and released date will be communicated soon.
Safety and Ratings Certificates.
With the ability to once again go sailing getting closer can you please confirm that you have completed and returned to me via email your Safety Category and AMS and or IRC (where applicable) . Send to Colin on email@example.com
