I just received an email from ILCA that states the NOR for worlds requires insurance on a Laser! It states we can buy at worlds for only $200 CAD. That is a rip-off if I've ever seen one. I always thought it was my decision as to whether or not I had insurance or if I was willing to take the low risk of not having and possibly have to pay for damage I may cause out of my pocket. I don't recall doing this at any other major event I have ever attended. Why is this a requirement? Can all the attendees tell the organizing authority (ILCA and St Margaret's Sailing Club) that we want this requirement eliminated?
