TO: The Canadian Albacore Association and the Thornbury Yacht Club

In consideration of my participation in the 2023 Albacore Canadian Championships (the “Event”) hosted by the Canadian Albacore Association (“CAA”) and Thornbury Yacht Club (“TYC”,together with the CAA, the “Organization”), I (and my heirs and any legal and personal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns), agree to the following (the “Agreement”):

1. RULES AND REGULATIONS: I agree to abide by the rules, regulations, and policies of the Organization

(and of any class or sailing association whose rules govern the Event), including all COVID-19 related

safety measures required by the Organization.

2. CERTAIN REPRESENTATIONS: My boat is in good order, equipped to participate in the Event and I am

fit  to participate; the provision of a race management team, patrol boats and other officials and

volunteers by the Event organizers does not relieve me of my own responsibilities; the provision of

patrol boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in extreme weather conditions, as can be

practically provided in the circumstances.

3. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RISK: I knowingly, willingly, and voluntarily acknowledge the inherent risks

associated with the sport of sailing and attendance at an Event, and that participation in any Event

involves risks and dangers including, without limitation, the potential for serious bodily injury

(including broken bones, head or neck injuries), hypothermia (cold water and air), concussion, sickness,

trauma, permanent disability, paralysis and death; loss of or damage to personal property; exposure to

extreme conditions and circumstances; accidents involving other participants, event staff, volunteers

or spectators; contact or collision with other participants or natural or manmade objects; adverse

weather conditions; facilities issues and premises conditions; participants of varying skill levels;

situations beyond the immediate control of the Event organizers and competition management; and

other undefined, not readily foreseeable and presently unknown risks and dangers (“Risks”).

4. ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I understand that Risks may be caused in whole or in part or result directly or

indirectly from the negligence of my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others

participating in the Event, or the negligent acts or omissions of the Released Parties (defined below),

and I voluntarily and knowingly assume all such Risks and responsibility for any damages, liabilities,

losses, or expenses that I incur as a result of my participation in the Event. I also agree to be

responsible for any injury or damage caused by me or any agents under my direction and control at

any Event.

5. RELEASE: I release from liability and waive any claims against the Organization, together with its

officers, directors, employees, volunteers and agents (the “Released Parties”), with respect to any

liability, claim(s), demand(s), cause(s) of action, damage(s), loss, or expense (including court costs

and reasonable attorney fees) of any kind or nature (“Liability”) which may arise out of, result from,

or relate in any way to my participation in the Event, including claims for Liability caused in whole or

in part by the negligent acts or omissions of the Released Parties, whether passive or active.

6. CONFIRMATION RELATED TO CONCUSSION AWARENESS: [Applicable only to those under the age of 26]

I have read an Ontario Ministry Approved Concussion Awareness Resource:

https://ontariosailing.ca/concussion-information and have reviewed, and committed to, the applicable

Ontario Sailing Concussion Code of Conduct.

7. USE OF PHOTO AND VIDEO: I give absolute right and permission to the Organization and its agents for

any photograph and video footage taken of myself or the boat I am sailing during the Event to be

published in any media whatsoever, for either editorial or advertising purposes or to be used in press

information, without compensation.

8. COMPLETE AGREEMENT AND SEVERABILITY CLAUSE: This Agreement represents the complete

understanding between the parties regarding these issues and no oral representations, statements or

inducements have been made apart from this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement is held to

be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable

from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
