Skipper (Person in Charge) Indemnification
I am familiar with and understand RRS 46, Person in Charge, and USSER 1.2, Responsibility. I agree to be responsible for each member of my crew to submit, prior to racing, a completed Waiver & Release of Liability of all claims against the Releasees on forms provided by the OA. If, notwithstanding this undertaking, for any one or more members of my crew who fails to provide such waiver, then I do hereby indemnify the Releasees against any claim brought against them and arising out of the participation of any such crew member in the 2022 Race Week at Newport presented by Rolex and its related activities, together with any costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, that may be incurred as a result of any such claim, whether the claim be valid or not.
I confirm that my boat is adequately insured with valid third-party insurance that is appropriate taking into account the boats racing and the type of racing.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT MOST PERSONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE DOES NOT INCLUDE LIABILITY FOR CONTRACTURAL INDEMNIFICATION. ACCORDINGLY IT IS URGENT THAT YOU AVOID INDEMNIFICATION BY ENSURING WAIVERS ARE SUBMITTED FROM ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR CREW. YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO CONSIDER OBTAINING WAIVERS RUNNING TO YOU INDIVIDUALLY.
