Please read and agree to this waiver for participation in NIHSA. *
All persons applying for membership in the National Institutes of Health Sailing Association (NIHSA) are required to read, agree to, and sign this waiver before using any NIHSA facilities, participating in any NIHSA organized activities, and/or using any NIHSA equipment.
I understand that sailing is an activity with inherent risks including, but not limited to, injury from falling onto, falling-off of, bumping into, or being struck by, various parts of a boat, dock, or other sailing-related objects. I understand that injury may occur due to inappropriate action on my part, on the part of others, equipment failure, weather, cold, heat, humidity, and other environmental factors. Injury may also occur during travel to, from, and during NIHSA organized events. I understand that such risks include not only injury, but also death due to drowning or other causes.
Having read this waiver, and in consideration of my participation, and understanding the risks associated with sailing, I assume all these risks, and do for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, and assignees waive, release, and forever discharge any and all rights and claims which may have or which hereafter accrued to me against the NIH Recreation and Welfare Association, the R&W Board, NIHSA, and any officers, instructors, members, and employees thereof, along with any sponsors and their representatives and successors.
