How does the Concierge Fee work while in Member Programs (excluding Race Programs)?

If damage occurs during a Member Program, the crew and skipper assume equal responsibility. If a member has paid the Concierge Fee, they are covered. If a member has not paid for the Concierge Fee, they are responsible for covering their portion (split by the number of members on board) of the insurance deductible or the cost of the repair if less than the deductible. Member’s guests fall under the Member’s membership.
