In consideration of being permitted to participate in Captain Dan School of Sailing and associated

consideration of acceptance to participate in such events:

(a) I acknowledge that a sailing has inherent risks and dangers and hereby assume those risks and dangers. These risks include but are not limited to personal injury and death and damage to and or loss of equipment and the sailing vessel itself through some failure of the vessel, collision with other vessels, debris, or animals as well as loss due to adverse weather conditions and seas.

(c) I further expressly agree the foregoing release and waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by law and that if any portion, clause or sub-clause hereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full force and effect. I have carefully read this agreement and fully understand Its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability and waiver of claims and sign it of my free will.
