    1. a.A boat is entirely responsible for her own safety, whether ashore or afloat, and nothing, whether in the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions or anywhere else reduces this responsibility.
    2. b.It is for a boat to decide whether she is fit to sail in the conditions in which she will find herself. By launching, the boat confirms that she is fit for those conditions and her crew is competent to sail and compete in them.
    3. c.Nothing done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the boat nor will it make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the racing. The organisers encompass everyone helping to run the race and the event, and include the organising authority, the race committee, the race officer, patrol boats, committee boat(s) and beach masters.
    4. d.The provision of patrol boats does not relieve the boat of her responsibilities.
    5. e.Personal buoyancy shall be worn by all competitors whilst afloat.
