Universal Release of Liability

Please submit one release for each participant

IN CONSIDERATION of being given the opportunity to participate in a Narragansett Boat Club rowing activity, including, but not limited to, scheduled, supervised club activities, and affiliated regattas, until the end of this calendar year, I, for myself, my personal representatives, assigns, heirs, and next of kin:

I.ACKNOWLEDGE, agree and represent that I understand the nature of Rowing Activities, both on water and land based ("Rowing Activities"), and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such Rowing Activities.

a.ROWING ACTIVITIES INVOLVE RISKS AND DANGERS of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death ("Risks");
b.These Risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the Rowing Activity, the condition in which the Rowing Activity takes place, or the negligence of administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, contractors and employees, other participating organizers, any sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of premises (collectively known as the “Releasees”), on which the Rowing Activity takes place;
c.There may be other risks and social and economic losses either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I FULLY ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES, COSTS, AND DAMAGES I incur as a result of my participation in the Rowing Activity.

a.I will examine and inspect each Rowing Activity in which I take part and that, if I observe any condition which I consider to be unacceptably hazardous or dangerous, I will notify the proper authority in charge of the Rowing Activity and will refuse to take part in the Rowing Activity until the condition has been corrected to my satisfaction;
b.I, and I alone, am responsible for my personal health and safety and the personal property that I bring with me. I am solely responsible for my medical expenses and decisions with respect to my care. I give my consent in the event of injury to any emergency medical aid, anesthesia or operation deemed necessary by the attending physician.

IV.HEREBY RELEASE, discharge, and covenant not to sue Releasees from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; I further agree that if, despite this release and waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I WILL INDEMNIFY, SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as a result of such claim, to the fullest extent permitted by law.

V.HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE and by my signature below, or that of my parent or guardian, attest that I have received, read, fully understand and will abide by the any Rowing Activity-specific safety rules for participants.

I have read this agreement, fully understand its terms, understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing it and have signed it freely and without any inducement or assurance of any nature and intend it to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law and agree that if any portion of this agreement is held to be invalid, the balance, notwithstanding, shall continue in full force and effect.
