The boats are insured all risks. The tenant is his own insurer, up to the deductible, regardless of the amount of the bail.

We invite you to take advantage of an insurance excess repurchase for your comfort and tranquility, you also have the option of taking out cancellation or repatriation insurance from Pantaenius or Ouest Assurances:

Note: the boats are insured for the Europe / Caribbean area but not for sailing in the waters of the US Virgin Islands.

The trainee must take out FFVoile insurance to participate in Open Sail training: either a Sailing Passport (€ 20, school insurance) or a Sailing License (€ 75, school insurance + regatta), both valid for the current year.

In view of the current context linked to the health crisis, Open Sail is committed to delivering a disinfected and healthy boat, respecting the rules of social distancing and barrier gestures during check-in / out. The tenant agrees to comply with these same rules and the instructions given by the State.

The tenant certifies on their honor that to their knowledge, the people on the crew list do not show any symptoms related to Covid 19 on the date of embarkation and have complied with government health protection measures during the last 14 days.

The renter, not responsible for the contamination of people sailing on board its boats, informs the tenant of the possibility of taking out cancellation / reimbursement insurance linked to Covid 19 with its partner Ouest Assurances:
