    I understand that sailing is a dangerous recreational activity and that accidents can happen.  I accept that neither the Club nor any Race Committee nor any other person involved in the organisation of any competition or activity in which I may choose to take part accepts any liability for any injury, death, loss or damage to equipment both ashore and afloat as a consequence of this boat or its crew taking part.  I undertake to ensure that any person using this boat is made aware of the risks that could be involved.

    I have read and understand my obligations as set out in the Sailing Australia Special Regulations Part 2.  I understand that any inspection is carried out only as a guide to Owners and Race Committees.  An inspector cannot limit or reduce the complete and unlimited responsibility of the Owner or Owner’s Representative as defined in the Fundamental Regulations.  I have read and understand the Sailing Australia recommendations.  I undertake to maintain the boat and all its equipment in good order and condition as specified in these Regulations.

    Where the Owner is not the Skipper I understand that the Skipper is the Owner’s Representative for the time that they are in charge of the boat and that I will familiarise them with their responsibilities as stated in RRS 1 and 4 and these Special Regulations.
