The club reserves the right to:-
|HEALTH & SAFETY NOTICE|
Boat angling is a hazardous activity. Individuals must accept that, by engaging in active water sports such as boat angling, their physical safety may be endangered. Sea angling currently accounts for the second highest mortality rate among sea users.
Anyone intending to participate in, or become involved with, boat angling organised by BAC – either as a skipper, crew or otherwise – does so at their own risk and such individuals must recognise the actual and potential risks associated with their involvement, including drowning, hypothermia and other physical injuries resulting from, for instance, falling overboard, penetrating or impact wounds from knives, hooks and weights as well as being bitten by fish.
Participants must acknowledge that it is up to them personally to assess whether any event or activity on the water is too difficult for them or their crew.
Individuals must acknowledge that the safety of their boat and her entire management including insurance is solely their responsibility, and they are satisfied that the boat and the crew are adequate to face the conditions that may arise in the course of a competition.
Entrants into the event must acknowledge that it is solely their responsibility to decide whether or not to start, or to continue, in any competition.
Individuals on signing on to the competition must agree :-
(i) to be bound by the conditions of the Competition Rules of the BAC
(ii) to accept the decisions of the BAC committee and officials nominated by it
(iii) to save harmless and keep indemnified:-
a. BAC & their sponsors and the Angling Trust and their respective officials, servants and agents
b. the other boat owners, drivers & crew engaged in the competition
against all actions, claims, costs, expenses and demands in respect of loss of, or damage to, the entrant’s property or the property of his/her drivers & crew whether or not such loss or damage may have been contributed to or occasioned by the negligence of the said persons or bodies, their officials, servants, representatives or agents.
In addition, all persons entering onto the club premises (compound and club house on North Quay) should be aware of the areas round the quay that have no safety railings and thus pose a safety hazard with respect to the possibility of falling over the edge. Extreme caution should be exercised in these areas and on no account are unsupervised children to be allowed to roam freely in the compound.
