15.0 RISK STATEMENT
Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing states: “The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing 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:
- 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;
- They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat and their other property whether afloat or ashore;
- They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by their own actions or omissions;
- Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to participate;
- The provision of a race management team, patrol boats and other officials and volunteers by the event organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities;
- The provision of patrol boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in extreme weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances.
Each boat is required to hold adequate insurance and in particular to hold insurance against third party claims in the sum of at least £2 million.
- MEMBERSHIP AND LIABILITY
- All visiting competitors will be deemed temporary members of Datchet Water Sailing Club during the event and as such shall abide by all the Club’s rules and bye-laws.
- Members of the Club, their guests and visitors may use the Club premises and other facilities of the Club entirely at their own risk and implicitly accept that: 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; the Club will not accept any liability for personal injury arising out of use of the Club premises or any other facilities of the Club, or out of participating in any race organised by the Club, whether sustained by members, their guests or visitors or caused by the said members, guests or visitors, whether or not such damage or injury could have been attributed to, or was occasioned by the neglect, default or negligence of any of the officers, committees or servants of the Club.
- Before inviting any guests or visitors onto the premises or to participate in events organised by the Club, members will draw attention to this rule.
18.0 LOCAL RULES (derived from the Bye-laws and club rules of Datchet Water Sailing Club) http://www.dwsc.co.uk/aboutus/club-by-laws/
18.1 Buoyancy: Each boat shall be fully equipped with sufficient buoyancy to enable it to float and to support its crew if capsized or holed. Personal flotation devices shall be worn by all crew members at all time whilst afloat, on the pontoons or near the water’s edge.
18.2 Protective clothing: Between 1st November and 30th April, full body wetsuits or dry-suits shall be worn by all competitors at all time whilst afloat. These do not constitute a personal flotation device.
18.3 Keeping Clear: Boats shall keep clear of all motor vessels that are restricted in their ability to manoeuvre. When a boat finds herself unable to keep clear of such a vessel she may use propulsion, such as paddling or rocking, provided she does not gain a significant advantage in the race (rule 42.3(h)).
18.4 Parking: You may park boats and trailers on the gravel of the south side of the clubhouse keeping the south launching slipway clear for our keel boats on Sundays. All cars will be asked to park down on the lower level unless instructed otherwise by DWSC Officials.
18.5 Invasive Species: In accordance with Environment Agency guidelines and to prevent the spread of invasive species, DWSC is adhering to the CHECK CLEAN DRY principle. Please make sure your boat has been clean and dry for 2 days prior to your arrival and is washed and dried before returning to other venues.
