Competitors participate in the Championship entirely at their own risk. See RRS Rule 4, Decision To Race.
The Organising Authority, and its officers, members and volunteers, will not accept liability for the loss of life or property, or personal injury, or damage caused by or arising out of the J-Cup 2017, including any pre-championship training at the championship site, and competitors take part in the championship entirely at their own risk.
The establishment of the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions in no way limits or reduces the complete and unlimited responsibilities of competitors being solely and entirely responsible for the management of a boat they are sailing.
It is the responsibility of each competitor to participate in a race or to continue racing. A competitor is wholly and exclusively responsible for his or her personal accident and health insurance. A skipper is wholly and exclusively responsible for his or her third party liability insurance on the boat that he or she is sailing.
