Not sure if it's possible to comply with their Ts and Cs anyway, so while I'd be right up for it if I could,I'm afraid that's me out.
Why not ask them how to comply and which insurance companies insure for racing?

I'm hoping given what I've said on here that they'll come up with a solution.

It's their event so they should be reading this...

When I spoke to the guys from Piranha at RIBEX they said that their insurers were happy about the event, and that it was a goer. Hopefully we'll hear some more details soon.

Sorry for delay we have been very tied up with boat shows etc.

We have an insurance company currently looking into insuring individuals who are struggling to gain the required level for the race and we will know by the end of the week.

Thanks for your patience.
