Established in 1955, the GP14 Class Association insurance scheme has now been in place for 60 years and has been underwritten by Navigators & General throughout the entire period, making it one of the oldest dinghy class partnerships of any kind.

Although now administered by, the scheme was managed by long standing GP14 Association member and past president, Graham Knox for much of its history, and Graham remains involved as an important link.

As a special gesture marking the 60th Anniversary, and Navigators & General have jointly agreed to extend policies to include the 2016 World Championships in Barbados at no additional cost.

In line with usual charges to extend cover for events outside Europe, an additional premium of £50.00 was expected to apply, and so this should be a very welcome announcement for all those intending to participate who are insured with

Craftinsure's Rod Daniel comments "together with Navigators & General, we are delighted to be supporting the GP14 Association Worlds again, and providing some help to members in attending what we are sure will be a fantastic event".

Although free of charge, Craftinsure advise that GP14 policy holders intending to take their boat to Barbados in March 2016 should still contact them so that cover can be extended for the event.
