2017 Pond Owner Liability Insurance

Many municipalities and pond owners require this Type of insurance in order to allow their park and lake facilities to be used for a clubs' sailing activities. In 2016 over 60 AMYA Sanctioned Clubs insured their Pond Owners with this policy. Every pond owner found the insurance provisions satisfactory.

Sailing site property owners or their managing agencies can be provided as Additional Insured under AMYA's Pond Owner General Liability Insurance policy with The David Agency, Elmhurst, IL. This Liability policy provides $1,000,000 Bodily Injury and Property Damage coverage for the pond owner.

Your AMYA Sanctioned Club can provide your pond owner with this insurance, which is in effect for a full calendar year (expiring December 31st), for the cost of $53.00.

A Club must have at least half (50%) of its memberís current in their AMYA membership to apply for this policy.

Insurance applies only to the Pond Owner, not the club or individual club members.

If your club sails on different ponds with different owners you will have to apply for separate Additional Insured Certificates of Insurance. Example - One Pond location/Owner per policy!
