Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

This COVID-19 Addendum supplements all other SCOW Skipper Requirements and Boat Use Policy and the Skipper Information File (SIF) applicable to each type of boat for which I am authorized to operate.

SCOW cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while utilizing SCOW’s boats and/or attending club functions. It is not possible for SCOW to eliminate the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to utilize SCOW’s boats and/or attend a club function you may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I have read and understood the above warning concerning COVID-19. I hereby choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 for myself in order to utilize SCOW’s boats and/or attend club functions. I accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 in order to use club boats in person.

WAIVER OF LAWSUIT/LIABILITY: I hereby fully, freely and voluntarily waive and relinquish any and all claims for damage, reimbursement or restitution in any form, and in any amount whatsoever, for injury(ies), loss(es) or damage(s) to any person(s) or property(ies) sustained from COVID-19 in connection with any functions or activities sponsored by SCOW, its officers, directors, agents or members, when acting within their SCOW capacity, in relation to any such damages or injuries.

While in command of any SCOW boat, I hereby specifically assume liability for any and all loss(es), injury(ies), death or damage(s) sustained by non-member guests or crew in the event such non-member guest or crew fails to sign the appropriate the SCOW COVID-19 waiver form.

I understand that selecting the “Click to Reserve a Boat” link below, will be the legally binding equivalent to my handwritten signature attesting that I have read, understand, and agree to the waiver above.

Please remember that we are an all volunteer club.
Always leave our boats better than you found them!
