To be covered for public liability and personal accident insurance one must be a member of a DBWA affiliated club. The policy does, however, cover the following non-members:
- Paddlers who are attending on a trial basis (maximum 3 times in a boat)
- First aid /medical persons attending an event on behalf of a DBWA club
- Non-club coaches
If you are paddling in a boat with a club (after the first 3 times), and are not a member of a DBWA club, you are not covered by insurance.
The marine hull policy does not include public liability and personal accident, as it is covered under the public liability and personal accident which is part of the DBWA membership fee.
All financial members (clubs, paddlers) of DBWA are covered by the AusDBF National Insurance Program. Visit vinsurancegroup.com/DragonBoat for insurance information and policies.
