skippers´ legal protection

Why legal protection insurance for skippers? (PDF)

Because being in the right is one thing – getting one's rights is another. Because legal disputes in other countries can be very expensive. Because fees for foreign lawyers usually have to be paid in advance. Because you have to pay lawyers' fees in different countries even if you win the case. It can even happen that not only the skipper but also the entire crew or just a single member of the crew is sued or himself/herself has good reason to sue.
