#GP14 – Irish GP14 dinghy sailing gets a boost this season with the support of insurance firm Craftinsure for the class national championships The firm has also been selected to handle the GP14 Association insurance scheme with effect from 1st April 2012 following a review by the Association.
The insurance scheme for the GP14 Class Association is one of the longest established, having been in place for over 50 years, and is strongly supported. For much of it's history, the scheme was very successfully managed by long serving GP14 Association member Graham Knox, who still assists with liaison between the Association Committee and their insurance partners.
The new arrangement maintains the long association with Navigators & General (part of Zurich Insurance plc), as all Craftinsure polices are underwritten by N&G.
As a leading online boat insurer in Ireland and the UK, Craftinsure is able to provide a cost effective and convenient insurance facility for GP14 owners. The fact that claims staff along with other key members of the Craftinsure team, are active dinghy sailors was another important factor in the selection process, as was the level of cover and security provided.
The Association will continue to benefit from contributions for each GP14 insured through the scheme, as well as from other forms of support including sponsorship for the 2012 Irish Nationals and the 2012 World Championships
Rod Daniel, director of Craftinsure comments "we are delighted to have been appointed to handle the GP14 scheme and that this Association can be added to IODAI and others where we have a strong affiliation. We look forward to welcoming new and existing GP14 owners to Craftinsure and to supporting the Association as much as possible".
