Club Class aims to provides you with an introduction to inshore yacht racing and an appreciation of the skills needed to crew on a racing yacht.
All boats are provided by their owners and crewed by volunteer racing members. Participants in Club Class are guests aboard the yacht.
- For the duration of Club Class: Skippers/Owners, Helpers, and any other person associated with the running of Club Class shall be deemed a Servant of the Club.
- Club Class is run entirely by volunteers. Club Class is NOT a training course and participation of any Club Servant does not signify their suitability to instruct.
- You, your guests and visitors, may use the Club premises, and any other facilities of the Club, entirely at your own risk; and on condition you accept that:
- You accept responsibility for the behaviour and actions of yourself and your guests and visitors whilst at the Club Premises (Please see Club Rules).
- Upon inviting guests or visitors on to the Club premises, or to participate in an event organised by the Club, you will draw attention to the terms and conditions set out below.
- The Club, its Officers and its Servants shall not accept liability for any damage to, or loss of, personal property, of yourself, your guests or visitors.
- The Club, its Officers and its Servants shall not accept liability for personal injury arising out of participation in Club Class, or use of any other facility of the Club.
- As with any sport there is some risk associated with sailing. Under Maritime Law you are required to follow the instructions of the designated Person-in-Charge of the yacht in a calm and controlled manner.
- The decks of yachts are often; hence slippery. Care must be taken when moving around the boat, suitable footwear should be worn at all times (see What should I bring).
- You will receive instruction on wearing and use of a Lifejacket. You are required to wear a Lifejacket at all times whilst under way.
- Your personal details will be held by us for a minimum of one year after the start date of your Club Class Experience. (See our GDPR Policy).
