2019-20 Frostbite Registration
All participants (sailing, race committee, and safety boats) are required to sign the HYC Regatta Waiver and Release of Indemity form. If you have already signed one for a previous Huguenot Yacht Club event, you do not need to resubmit it. Skippers and crews are required to each sign it separately. It is required in order to participate. It can be uploaded in PDF format. Please sign and and submit to any of the Frostbite Committee Members before you participate.
US Sailing provideds sample Waiver and Release agreements as a resource for our member organizations. US Sailing makes no guarantees as to the legal sufficiency of the agreements and nothing contained therein shall be considered legal advice. You should contact your attorney to obtain advice with respect to any particular issue or problem.
The “Regatta Waiver and Release of Liability” is intended for use at competition events that are run under The Racing Rules of Sailing, Including US Sailing Prescriptions.
Please be aware that RRS 82, a US Sailing Prescription, prohibits an organizing authority from requiring a competitor “to assume any liabilities of the organizing authority, race committee, protest committee, host club, sponsors, or any other organization or official involved with the event.” For further information, please go to rules.ussailing.org and click the “Indemnification” link.
For more information on the use of waivers and releases of liability, for or other questions about race documents, please email the Race Administration Office at email@example.com or call (401) 342-7948.
