Red Sea Insurance Problems and Solutions
by Sail-World on 17 Dec 2005
Red Sea Insurance seems to be getting more difficult to get every year. As reported to Noonsite
from yachts currently in the Red Sea, Kaddar Insurance
are offering insurance for the transit or cruise at competitive rates.
As several companies are offering world-wide insurance with the Red Sea area omitted, this may offer another option to sailors wishing to cruise or transit the Red Sea.
Editor's Footnote: We don't understand why the Red Sea offers so many difficulties. Admittedly, the winds are strong, and for transiting yachts going north mostly on the nose, and there are many coral reefs, but this also applies to many other areas of the world. Once past the Straits of Babel Mandeb and into the Red Sea itself, the pirate zone has been successfully transversed, so this cannot offer a reason.
