Disclaimer of Liability
A boat (defined as including its helm and crew) participates in the racing entirely at its own risk. See RRS 4,
Decision to Race.
The organizing authority will not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury or death
sustained in conjunction with or prior to, during, or after the regatta.
A boat is entirely responsible for its own safety, whether afloat or ashore, and nothing, whether in the Notice
of Race or Sailing Instructions or anywhere else, reduces this responsibility. It is for the boat to decide
whether it is fit to sail in the conditions in which it will find itself. By launching or going to sea, the boat
confirms that it is fit for these conditions and that its crew is competent to sail and compete in them.
Nothing done or omitted to be done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the boat nor will it
make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have
occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the racing. The organisers encompass everyone helping to run
the race and the event, and include the organising authority, the race committee, the race officer, patrol boats
and beachmasters. The provision of patrol boats does not relieve the boat of her responsibilities. The fact
that the race committee may conduct inspections of the boat does not reduce the responsibilities of the boat.
