ISC 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:


(a) 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;

(b) They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat and their
other property whether afloat or ashore;

(c) They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by
their own actions or omissions;

(d) Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to
participate;

(e) The provision of a race management team, support boats and other officials and
volunteers by the event organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities;

(f) The provision of support boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in
extreme weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances;
and

(g) It is their responsibility to familiarise themselves with any risks specific to this venue or
this event drawn to their attention in any rules and information produced for the venue
or event and to attend any safety briefing held for the event.
