Competitors participate in the Scandinavian Cup 2010 entirely at their own risk. See the RRS, Part 1, rule 4, Decision to Race: "The responsibility for a boat's decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone". The organizing committee, the sponsors and any person or entity in the organisation of the event will not accept any liability of material damage or personal injury or death sustained in conjunction with or prior to, during, or after the regatta, both on the water and ashore.
The question of damages arising from a breach of any rule shall be governed by the prescriptions, if any, of the national authority.
FIV prescribes: The participants and/or the yacht must be covered by suitable insurance cover for civil liability (R.C.) for damages to third parties (things or person) amount not less than what has been established for the current federal regulation: not less than € 1.000.000.
The Race Committee and/or The Protest Committee will verify the facts that gave origin to the damages, but they cannot decide the actions of compensation for damages as per rule 68, or the amount of them.
