Cruising Insurance

How do you get insurance to sail as a couple on BEOWULF? I have friends with a Tayana 52 in Hawaii, who are now kind of stranded because their Lloyds policy requires four crew and the other couple (the guy actually) wimped while they were all headed for NZ. Or do you sail bare (which is what I am doing right now as a singlehander)? -Lesley

Hi Lesley: Our policy allows us to sail with just two. It is written with Cigna, and our agent is Paul Itel at Serve Underwriters. Paul’s number is 805-730-7370/800-537-3738. I know the availability varies with boat size, equipment, and the experience of the crew. Good luck–Steve Dashew
