General Waiver: In consideration of the acceptance of this entry, I hereby agree that the safety of my boat and her crew, including the decision whether or not to start or continue to race, is my responsibility and not that of any person or entity sponsoring or undertaking such race and I hereby forever and irrevocably waive, release and discharge to the fullest extent permitted by law any and all claims, liability, loss, or damages, including but not limited to claims for property damage, personal injury or death, which I may have or in the future acquire against Riverside Yacht Club, Indian Harbor Yacht Club, Old Greenwich Yacht Club, Belle Haven Club, the YRALIS, and Greenwich Laser Racing, their officers, governors, members, employees, volunteers or agents, arising out of or in any way connected with my participation in any race or other activity sponsored or undertaken by any of them, even though such liability may arise out of their negligence or carelessness. To the extent any such claim is not released or discharged pursuant hereto, I agree to resolve any such claim through binding arbitration. I understand that serious accidents can occur during sailboat racing, and that participants in sailboat racing can sustain mortal or serious personal injuries and/or property damage as a consequence. I also understand that there is a risk of death or injury from infections that may be transmitted while participating in sailboat racing and related activities. I knowingly assume all such risks of sailboat racing and infection. I agree that this waiver is binding on my heirs, representatives, successors and assigns. Laser sailors agree to wear U.S. Coast Guard approved PFDs at all times while racing, sailing to racing and sailing from racing. I agree to abide by the Racing Rules of Sailing. I have read and understand Fundamental Rules 1 through 5. I understand that abusive language directed at another competitor or at a race official may result in penalties under Rules 2 or 69.1(a).
