Series T’s & C’s

Gaffers / TARS Series T&Cs
Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing states “The responsibility for a boat’s decision to
participate to race or continue to race 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:
(a) They are aware of the inherent element of 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;
(b) They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat and their other
property whether afloat or ashore;
(c) They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by their
own actions or omissions;
(d) Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to participate;
(e) The provision of a series management team, support boats and other officials and
volunteers by the event organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities;
(f) The provision of support boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in extreme
weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances.
(g) All non CBYC member skippers and crew will be deemed to be temporary members for
the duration of a race and, as such, shall abide by all the Club’s rules.
Members of the Club, their guests and visitors, use the Club premises and any other facilities
of the Club entirely at their own risk and accept that:
(1) The Club will not accept any liability for any damage to or loss of property belonging to
Members, their guests or visitors to the Club.
(2) The Club will not accept any liability for personal injury arising out of the use of the Club
premises, or any other facilities of the Club, or out of participation in any races or other
activities organised by the Club, whether sustained by Members, their guests or visitors,
