Risk Warning


Participation in recreational activities supplied by or on behalf of or at the Club is at the participant's own risk. Participants are warned that sailing, boating and associated activities are a dangerous recreational activity and that by participating in sailing, boating and associated activities they may be exposed to significant risk of personal injury or possibly death.

As an indication only, possible risks include:

  • personal injury or possibly death caused by vessels, including equipment on vessels, loss of or limited control of vessels, sudden or violent movement by vessels and/or the possibility that vessels may collide and/or participants may fall or be thrown overboard from vessels

  • slipways, stairs, passageways, structures and buildings, including where all or any of those things are wet or slimy

  • weather and sea conditions

  • exposure to the elements for extended periods

  • the absence of immediate medical care and the likelihood that significant delays may occur before medical care is available and that all or any of these risks may arise notwithstanding the precautions which might be taken by reasonable and experienced persons.

It is a term of any contract between the Club and any person for recreation services within the meaning of the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) that the person engages in any recreational activity supplied under or pursuant to that contract at the person's own risk.
