You can’t believe how big of a mountain we had to climb to get insurance.
As you can imagine, insurance is pretty critical for what we do. I mean, what would happen if someone’s baby boy or girl slips off the boat and hurts themselves or worse? Of course we take a gazillion safety measures to insure nothing ever happens…and nothing has yet (knock on wood). But the word ‘accident’ got coined for a reason.
So we finally got a proposal we can work with that won’t cost an arm and a leg, and will allow us to provide the protection for our volunteers and participants that we need. Yippeee for us! It also means we are now officially registered with US Sailing as a non-profit foundation.
