Hants & Dorset ARA Head Events

Public Liability Insurance via British Rowing.

The procedure is that event secretaries apply direct to BR for the insurance cover – and send the safety documentation to the Association Secretary/RRSA. The RRSA views and approved the documents. BR asks the RRSA if he has received and approved the documents. Providing the RRSA responds positively BR confirm the event is covered and invoice the event. In 2016 the cost  was £110 per day. For 2017 this is being revised for events March 31 2017 - March 2018.  The fee will either stay the same or be close to this amount.  

The contact at BR is Meghann Jackson <>
