10. Disclaimer of Liability: A boat is entirely responsible for her own safety, whether afloat or ashore, nothing,

It is for the boat to decide whether she is fit to sail in the conditions in which she will find herself. By launching or

going to sea, the boat confirms that she is fit for those conditions and her crew is competent to sail and compete in


Nothing 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 beach masters.
