Kayaking Insurance

The thrills of pitting your wits and skill against a raging river are enjoyed by lots of serious sports fans, who like their pursuits to test them to their limits. If you're a thrill-seeker who loves canoeing or kayaking, you'll equally appreciate that Mother Nature can sometimes be cruel, and the challenges she presents in the water are highly demanding.

At Insure4Sport, we like to help people get the most enjoyment possible out of their chosen sport. So our kayaking insurance is designed to give you the confidence to tackle the challenges many stretches of water can offer and know that, in the event of suffering an accident, you will be well looked after.

Kayaking Risk Factors

One of the biggest risk factors associated with canoeing and kayaking is in experience. Beginners may be more prone to an incident due to a lack of understanding of the technique and skills required in certain conditions when on the water. Kayaking can include a wide range of scenarios, which can also change very quickly.  Drifting through rivers or lakes to enjoy the view or battling white water rapids require a focus on good technique in order to help stay safe.

A poor technique can not only lead you to gaining injuries, but can also put you in danger as canoes and kayaks are tricky to steer and can easily tip over. You can also put unnecessary strain on joints, muscles and ligaments by not holding and moving your body correctly.

Accidents and injuries are far more likely to happen if you attempt to kayak in waters that challenge your level of skill, or the equipment you are using. When entering the water anywhere, it is always good practice to assess your limits.

Helmets,life jackets and any other protective equipment are absolutely essential when kayaking as you will inevitably be presented with a wide range of hazards.Rocks are particularly dangerous as they may lie just below the surface of the water, without you realising – which would easily cause significant amounts of damage to your vessel and could be very painful if you capsize.

Benefits of an Insure4Sport Kayaking Insurance Policy

At Insure4Sport we appreciate that the majority of sportsmen and women undertake a wide range of sporting activities - which helped us develop and introduce our multi sports cover. Kayaking is a Risk Group B sport, as are football, swimming (open water) and hockey.
