CHICAGO YACHT CLUB
LIABILITY RELEASE & WAIVER AGREEMENT
Racing Yacht Fleet Series
By signing below, I agree to give up certain rights or potential rights relating to my participation in the RYF Series as explained below. This means, among other things, neither my family nor I will sue if I am injured or die during the regatta. I also agree to allow the Club to use pictures of me. Further, I understand that the Club will send me certain emails and may publish my name and home city. The terms of my agreement are as follows:
Release of Liability. In consideration for my participation in the RYF Series (the "Race"), I, on behalf of myself and my respective heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives and next of kin (collectively with me, the "Releasors"), hereby forever waive, release and discharge, the Chicago Yacht Club, its affiliates, and their respective members, managers, employees, agents, volunteers, sponsors, officers, directors, representatives, successors and assigns (each a "Released Party") from any and all claims, demands, damages, judgments, executions, rights of action or causes of action, present or future, whether the same be known, anticipated or unanticipated, which one or more Releasors may have, or claim to have, against any Released Party resulting from death, personal injury, property damage or other loss any Releasors may sustain as a result of my participation in any sailing activity associated with the Race, other related activities (including land-based activities, such as parties related to the Race), or the use of the Chicago Yacht Club's facilities.
THIS RELEASE IS INTENDED TO DISCHARGE EACH RELEASED PARTY FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH MY PARTICIPATION IN THE RACE, EVEN IF THAT LIABILITY ARISES OUT OF NEGLIGENCE OR CARELESSNESS ON THE PART OF ANY RELEASED PARTY.
Assumption of Risk. I hereby acknowledge that serious accidents occasionally occur during sailing activities and that mortal or serious personal injuries and/or property damage or other loss may result from participation in sailing activities. I hereby voluntarily assume these and all other risks inherent to the sport of sailing, including the risk of injury or death.
Permission to Use my Likeness. I hereby grant the Chicago Yacht Club, its agents and assigns the unconditional and perpetual right to publish and broadcast anywhere in the world for any purpose and in any media the names and images of me relating to or arising from my participation in the Race or any other related activities.
Use of Email: I understand that the Club sends emails to participants in the Race. I have no objection to the Club sending me such emails and I consent to the same.
Publication of Name & Home City: I understand that the Club may publish the names and home cities of those participating in the Race. I have no objection to the Club publishing my name and home city and I consent to the same.
