Disclaimer of Liability

Each boat skipper is entirely responsible for the safety of the boat and crew and nothing, whether in the sailing instructions or anywhere else reduces that responsibility.

Nothing done by the organiser can reduce the responsibility of the boat skipper, nor will it make the organiser responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, howsoever it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the race. The term "organiser" encompasses everyone helping to run the race and the event, and includes the organising authority, the race committee, the race officer and the committee boat crews.


Each competing boat is required to hold adequate insurance and in particular to hold insurance against third party claims in the sum of at least £2,000,000
