To the best of my knowledge, I am not suffering from a condition which would prevent and/or render me unfit to participate in the Regatta. If I become aware of any medical condition or impairment or become sick or injured prior to the Regatta I will withdraw from the Regatta and inform the organisers.

I agree that if the Regatta is cancelled for any reason, including but not limited to inclement weather, entry and participants’ fees are non-refundable, and will be used to cover operational costs incurred as well as contribute to our worthy charitable projects. I acknowledge that cancellation of the Regatta is at PIF’s absolute discretion and it is PIF’s prerogative to cancel the Regatta at any time.
