Why Rowing Insurance?

Play Safer. Play Smarter.

Rowing is an Olympic sport for both men and women that is popular across all age groups. Part of its appeal is that it is a non-contact sport requiring a combination of technical skill, strength, cardiovascular fitness, rhythm and balance. Rowing is a total body workout, a muscle builder and a great calorie burner. Older age groups who compete in rowing have a much lower rate of cardiovascular disease (30%), diabetes (20%), and obesity (20%) compared with the average population of the same age group in the U.S.

Rowing is a fantastic way to enjoy the great outdoors. It is a great way to release the stresses of the day by providing both a stress busting physical workout, as well as enjoying the calming effect of tranquil outdoor waters. Team rowing is rewarding when achievements are made and joining with others to complete can build lifelong relationships.

Rowing is a sport that is enjoyed throughout the world. Here are some of the top destinations:

  • Lake Lugano – between Switzerland and Italy, breathtaking views of Alps and villages.
  • Southeast Corner of Ireland – four rivers, picturesque scenes of snug villages and farms.
  • Lago Di Como, Bellagio, Italy – Between Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan, charming villages, rolling hills, colorful architecture, vibrant gardens and snow-capped Alps.

Kyle loves to travel the world and meet new people. He also enjoys team sports and the outdoors. So team rowing vacations became the perfect combination of all of the things Kyle loves to do most. He counts the days until his next team rowing trip.

Like any adventure sport, however, Kyle understands that rowing carries some risks. Injuries are common in rowing, particularly in the lower back and wrist. Stress fractures of the rib occur in up to one in eight rowers and account for the most time lost from on-water training. Injuries are also prevalent in the elbow, knee, ankle and fingers.

Though relatively rare, rowing accidents happen on occasion. For instance, in 2019 alone, one rower drowned after capsizing while training in Austria. Two University of Oregon boats swamped in rapidly changing weather and several rowers were treated for hypothermia. There was also an incident where a young girl’s hair became entangled in the rigging when her boat capsized, trapping her under the boat. CPR was performed and she was hospitalized for several weeks.

That’s why Kyle came to Good Neighbor - to protect himself in the event of an injury or accident. In addition to ensuring you have proper medical coverage, good rowing insurance plans offer medical evacuation and other specialized care that may be needed when you are rowing.

One of Kyle’s teammates learned the hard way about the importance of carrying rowing insurance, so Kyle has purchased rowing insurance ever since. He needed it a couple of years ago while rowing in London, when he suffered a significant wrist injury that required medical treatment. Having a rowing insurance policy saved Kyle a lot of money and made the whole process much easier.

Kyle received prompt and proper medical treatment for his wrist injury and didn’t have to pay for it out of his own pocket. Be like Kyle and protect yourself with a rowing insurance plan today. Get started by selecting one of the featured plans below or by getting a quote now.
