As a condition of my entry, and being fully knowledgeable of the risks of sailing as a competitive sport, I agree to hold harmless the Venice Sailing Squadron, the Venice Yacht Club, the Race Committee, the officers, directors, and the employees from which any and all damages, losses, claims, suits, actions, expenses or liabilities which directly or indirectly arise from my participation in this regatta. I agree that my crew and my guests are my responsibility and we will abide by the rules and regulations of the Venice Yacht Club. I further agree to be bound by the Racing Rules of Sailing and by other rules that govern this event. I agree that the West Florida PHRF Rating Certificate filed with this entry is a true copy of my valid Rating Certificate and that no changes have been made to my yacht that would affect her rating. I understand that a mark used for the regatta may be subject to weather conditions or vandalism that may cause it to be missing or off position from the stated latitude/longitude in the Sailing Instructions. In such an instance, and if the Race Committee is unable to replace the mark, the stated latitude/longitude shall be the mark. For the purposes of this regatta, this amends the definition of "mark" in the rules. As such, it is a requirement that each competitor use a GPS receiver for the regatta.
