Thanks to all those who have contributed so far. It would be great to hear from others who sail single handed at times too about who they use. This discussion pretty much sums up what we were thinking, especially Bill's comment (and Alan's) about there potentially being some room for negotiation on certain clauses based on one's experience, history and the specific sailing zones covered. Naturally we would understand/support the logic for paying a higher excess for any claims whilst single handed as this is not our normal situation, but will sometimes be unavoidable.
In going through our Panteanius PDS clauses in fine detail yesterday there were many very handy "extras" that would provide great peace of mind for sailing in the remote areas we intend to sail this year, (eg medical, and evacuation costs etc etc). We see them as the most widely recommended company internationally and since we have had 6 years of very good ongoing relations with Panteanius (both UK office and Australian office when it opened), we will be going back to their Sydney first to see what can be done in relation to the single handed clause, rates for all zones we will sail through, and to ensure we are not later on lumped with a new "anchored watch person" restriction.
Since we are still a UK registered yacht we will also approach Y Yachts today to find out more on their product, as well as the NZ Broker "Bailey's".
