Membership Application 2016-2017 - Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Claims

In consideration of this entry acceptance, I agree to the conditions of the rules and regulations of the Mamaroneck Frostbite Association, all of which I shall have read before racing.  I warrant and agree that my boat is seaworthy, complies with Mamaroneck Frostbite Association specifications, and will be competently crewed and handled. I am fully knowledgeable of the risks of sailing as a competitive sport.

I agree that my own safety, the safety of my boat and the decision whether or not to participate in a race day, is my responsibility and not that of any person sponsoring or undertaking these races and activities.  I hereby agree to waive all claims against Mamaroneck Frostbite Association, and its officers, directors, members, committees, employees, or agents, arising out of or in any way connected with participation in any race days or related activities sponsored by Mamaroneck Frostbite Association. I further agree that if, despite this Agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of Mamaroneck Frostbite Association, and its officers, directors, members, committees, employees, or agents, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of them from any loss, liability, damage, or cost, including, without limitation, any and all litigation expenses and attorney fees, which any of them may incur as the result of such claim.  I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owner of any vessel I operate, if it is not my own, for any loss or damage to property, which may result during my operation thereof, regardless of whether the harm is caused by me or another person, regardless of whether the harm is the result of my negligence.

If I have chartered a boat, I agree to surrender the chartered boat at the expiration of the racing season in the same or better condition in which the chartered boat was chartered.  Any repairs required to a boat I have chartered that are a result of racing day activities, including but not limited to collision, capsize, and/or grounding, are my responsibility.

I agree that this waiver is binding on me, my heirs, representatives, successors and assigns. If any portion of this Agreement is unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.  This Agreement shall be construed and interpreted according to the laws of the State of New York.
