- They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat and their other property whether afloat or ashore.
- They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by their own actions or omissions.
- By participating in any race they are satisfied that the boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the Event and that they are fit to participate.
- The provisions of a race management team, safety boats, judges and other officials and volunteers by the race organiser does not relieve them of their own responsibilities.
- The provision of safety boats is limited to each assistance, particularly in extreme weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances.
- It is their responsibility to familiarise themselves with any risk specific to the venue or the Event drawn to their attention in any rules and information produced for the venue or the Event and to attend any safety briefing held for the Event
