ASF Acknowledgment, Waiver and Release from Liability (AWRL)

I acknowledge that sailing is a test of a person’s physical and mental abilities and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury, and property loss. I HEREBY ASSUME THE RISKS OF PARTICIPATING IN ARIZONA SAILING FOUNDATION (ASF) sailing events and activities (EVENTS). I certify that I am physically fit to participate in such EVENTS, and have not been advised against participation in such EVENTS by a qualified health professional. I acknowledge that my statements released in this AWRL are in consideration for allowing me to participate in activities provided by the ASF and are being relied upon by ASF and its sponsors, organizers and/or administrators in permitting me to participate in any ASF EVENTS.

In consideration for allowing me to participate in ASF EVENTS, I hereby take the following action for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors and assigns, or anyone else who might claim or sue on my behalf, and I expressly acknowledge that it is my intent to take these actions:

I AGREE that prior to participating in an event I will inspect the facilities, equipment, and areas to be used and if I believe any are unsafe I will immediately advise the person supervising the ASF EVENT;

I HEREBY WAIVE, RELEASE, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE from any and all claims, losses (economic and non-economic), and liabilities for death, personal injury, partial or permanent disability, property damage, medical or/or hospital bills, theft, and/or damages of any kind, which may arise out of, result from, or relate to my participation in or my traveling to or from an ASF EVENT, the following persons and entities: ASF, ASF and EVENT sponsors, ASF and EVENT volunteers, governmental bodies in locations in which events or segments of events are held, owners and lessors of premises on which ASF activities take place, and the officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents of any of the above (collectively referred to as the “Released Parties”), even if such claims, losses, or liabilities are caused by the negligent acts or omissions of any of the Released Parties or are caused by the negligent acts or omissions of any other person or entity; and

I FURTHER COVENANT AND AGREE NOT TO SUE any of the Released Parties for any of the claims, losses, damages or liabilities that I have waived, released, or discharged herein.

I INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS the Released Parties from any and all expenses incurred, claims made, or liabilities assessed against them, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses, arising out of or resulting from, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, (i) my actions or inactions, (ii) my breach or failure to abide by any part of this AWRL including but not limited to my covenant not to sue; (iii) my breach or failure to abide by any of the Rules; or (iv) any other harm caused by me.

I hereby grant permission for the use of my name and/or likeness relating to my participation in an ASF sanctioned event, and I waive all rights to any future compensation to which I may otherwise be entitled as a result of the use of my name or likeness.
