It must be recognised that sailing is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk.
By taking part in these cruiser races, you agree and acknowledge that:
(i) You are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and you accept responsibility of exposing yourself to such risk whilst taking part in the cruiser races;
(ii) You will comply at all times with the instructions of the organising authority particularly with regard to handling of boats, wearing of buoyancy aids and the wearing of suitable clothing for the conditions;
(iii) You accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by your own negligence;
(iv) Your boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the series and you are fit to participate;
(v) The provision of a race management team, patrol boats and other officials and volunteers by the organiser does not relieve you of your own responsibilities;
(vi) Provision of patrol boat cover (if any) is limited to such assistance as can be practically provided in the circumstances.
