I have paid particular attention to and agree to be bound by Special Regulation 1.02 and I have read and understand and where appropriate agree to be bound by RORC General Condition 2 Responsibility. Before racing I will effect adequate and suitable insurance. Before racing I will ensure that my crew is aware of the undertaking in this Declaration, the importance of effecting appropriate personal insurance, their responsibility in rules observance, and in particular RRS 1.2 (wearing personal buoyancy adequate for the conditions).
I agree to be bound by RRS, ISA Prescriptions, RORC General Conditions, ISAF Special Regulations, ISORA Special Regulations, ISORA General Conditions and Sailing Instructions, and any other applicable rules imposed by race hosting clubs. The boat will be available for inspection. If any alteration likely to affect the handicap or rating is made, e.g. to sails, rig, mast, ballast, trim, engine or propeller, I will notify the Rating Authority and Race Committee immediately.
I will ensure that no crew member races on my boat contrary to the terms of any ban imposed by World Sailing (ISAF), or a National Authority or the RORC.
I/We have now read the current RORC General Conditions and Racing Rules of Sailing and ISAF Offshore Special Regulations and that my boat complies with Category 3 plus Liferaft for cross channel and Category 3 for all other races , a valid IRC Certificate with a minimum SSS Base Number of 20.
I understand and agree that the information given in this form and also the race lists and results will be maintained on the Club’s computer to be used for all aspects of race organisation.'
