8.Disclaimer of Liability
i.Competitors are entirely responsible for their own safety, whether ashore or afloat, and nothing reduces this responsibility. It is for competitors to decide whether their boat and its helm and crew are fit to sail in the conditions that they might find. By launching or going afloat competitors confirm their boat is fit for those conditions and that they are competent to sail and compete in them. Nothing done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the owners and or competitors, nor will it make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have occurred, as a result of taking part in the racing. The organisers encompass everyone helping to run the event and include the organising authority, race committee, race officer, safety officer, patrol boat personnel and beach masters. The provision of patrol boats does not relieve owners and competitors of their responsibilities.
i.Each participating boat shall be insured with valid third-party insurance with a minimum cover of £2,000,000 (two million pounds) per event, or the equivalent.
Competitors must make themselves fully aware of Bartley Sailing Club Covid 19 requirements and the relevant UK Government rules and guidance in place at the time of the event.
