Waiver, By-laws and Policies
I understand and hereby agree that windsurfing and stand up paddling include activities on land and on water (all of which are the “club activities”) that involve certain risks and dangers incidental thereto. Risks include, but are not limited to, injury or drowning from collisions with other vessels or stationary objects, from the malfunctioning of equipment, or from adverse weather. Such risks are increased when the air or water temperature is low creating the risk of hypothermia. I also understand that the physical exertion of the club activities can result in injury or death. I understand that the inherent nature of being around the water and water craft has risks. I further agree and acknowledge for myself and/or my minor child(ren)/wards:
In spite of and fully understanding such risks and other risks not expressly stated, I/we wish to participate in the club activities at TWC and hereby assume all the risks of doing so.
In consideration of TWC agreeing to allow us to participate in the club activities accompanied or unaccompanied (meaning with or without a safety/coach boat), using TWC’s public equipment and permitting use of club facilities, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is acknowledged, I hereby agree not to hold TWC, and its directors, officers, employees, agents, coaches, volunteers, members, independent contractors, subcontractors and representatives, all of whom are herein after referred to as the “Releasees”, liable for our personal injury, death, and/or property loss, and;
TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS THAT I HAVE OR MAY HAVE IN THE FUTURE AGAINST THE RELEASEES AND TO RELEASE THE RELEASEES from any and all liability for any loss, damage expense or injury including death that I may suffer or that my kin may suffer as a result of my participation in the club activities, on land or on water, due to any cause whatsoever, including NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF ANY STATUTORY OR OTHER DUTY OF CARE INCLUDING ANY DUTY OF CARE UNDER THE OCCUPIERS LIABILITY ACT ON THE PART OF THE RELEASES AND FURTHER, INCLUDING FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD AND PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF THE CLUB ACTIVITIES REFERRED TO ABOVE.
I agree to hold harmless and to indemnify the Releasees from any and all liability for any property damage or personal injury to any third party resulting from our participation in the club activities. I agree that this agreement shall be binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators and assigns in the event of my death. In entering into this agreement, I am not relying on an oral or written representation or statements made by the Releasees with respect to the safety of the club activities other than as set forth in this agreement.
I have read and understood this agreement and I am aware that by agreeing to it, online or in hard copy, I am waiving certain legal rights which I or my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, and assigns may have against the Releasees.
