8             SAFETY REGULATIONS

Competitors shall wear personal flotation devices adequate for the conditions at all times whilst afloat.

9             DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY

Competitors are entirely responsible for their own safety, whether afloat or ashore, 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 to sea competitors confirm their boat is fit for those conditions and that they are competent to sail and compete in them.  Nothing done by the organizers can reduce the responsibility of the owners and/or competitors, nor will it make the organizers 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 organizers encompass everyone helping to run the event and include the organizing 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.

10         INSURANCE

Each participating boat shall be insured with valid third-party liability insurance with a minimum cover of £2million per event or the equivalent.

11         GALLEY

Hot breakfasts (Bacon Rolls) and Lunches will be available on the day for Competitors and non-sailors.
