8. Risk statement
8.1. Competitors are entirely responsibly for their own safety, whether afloat or ashore and nothing, whether in the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions or, anywhere else reduces this responsibility.
8.2. It is for the competitors to decide whether their boat is fit to sail in the conditions in which it will find itself. By launching or going afloat, the competitors confirm that the boat is fit for those conditions and they are competent to sail and compete in them.
8.3. Nothing done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the owners and / or competitors, 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 Frampton on Severn Sailing Club, the organising authority, the race committee, the race officer, patrol boats and beach masters.
8.4. The provision of patrol boats does not relieve the boat of her responsibilities.
