Risk Statement for Participants
We agree to the Participants Risk Statement as follows
... “Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing states: "The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone." Sailing is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By taking part in the event, each competitor agrees and acknowledges that:
They are aware of the inherent risk involved in the sport and accept responsibility for the exposure of themselves, their crew and their boat to such inherent risk whilst taking part in the event.
They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew their boat and other property whether afloat or ashore;
They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by their own actions or omissions;
It is their responsibility to ensure that they have adequate insurance in place to cover death, injury, damage or loss including to third parties caused by their own actions or omissions;
Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to participate;
The provision of a race management team, patrol boats and other officials and volunteers by the local event organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities;”
Each craft is required to hold adequate insurance and, in particular, to hold insurance against third party claims in the sum of at least £2 million. This minimum may be amended as appropriate, in the sailing instructions of the host club.


If there is a conflict or inconsistency between any provision contained in the body of these Conditions of Entry and any provision contained in the Event Conditions, except where provided to the contrary in the latter, the Event Conditions prevail to the extent of the conflict or inconsistency.
The Agreement shall be governed by English law, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. If any provision of the Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, the validity of the remainder shall not be affected. The Agreement does not create, confer or purport to confer any benefit or right enforceable by any person not party to it.
