I recognize and understand that participation in the regatta is voluntary, and that participants incur risks by participating, including the possibility of death or injury. To the fullest extent permitted by law, I hereby waive any rights I may have to  sue  the  race  organizers  (organizing  authority,  race  committee,  protest committee, host club, sponsors, or any other organization or official) involved with the event with respect to personal injury or property damage suffered by myself or my crew or my child as a result of my or their participation in this event and hereby release the race organizers from any liability for such injury or damage. I understand that I am responsible for my actions or the actions of my child while I or he or she may be participating in the regatta and on the grounds of the event host, and that I am solely responsible for deciding whether or not I or my crew or my child participates or continues participating in the event.

Waiver of Liability for ILYA Minor Entrants

I recognize and understand that participation in a regatta or clinic is voluntary, and that my child incurs risks by participating, including the possibility of death or injury.  In consideration of the acceptance of my child’s entry, I waive any and all claims, charges, losses and liabilities including those caused by negligence, against the Inland Lake Yachting Association and its host clubs, their respective officers, trustees, contractors, employees, and members, and against any and all volunteers, which may arise from, or in any way be in connection with, the practices or activities of the event and its organizers.  I am aware that the activities of my child may involve maneuvering a boat on deep waters in potentially hazardous conditions which may include among other things, cold water temperature, strong winds and high waves, sudden and unexpected immersion in deep waters and collision with other watercraft or stationary objects such as docks, pilings, and buoys. I understand that I am responsible for the actions of my child while he or she may be participating in the event and on the grounds of the event host, and that I am solely responsible for deciding whether or not my child participates or continues participating in the event. We also agree that the sailor will be bound by the Racing Rules of Sailing, the rules of ILYA and by all other rules that govern this event.
