"Any damn fool can navigate the world sober. It takes a really good sailor to do it drunk." - Sir Francis Chichester when asked why he carried so much alcohol on his solo sail around the world.

2014 Bootlegger Racing Team Crew Release

Some owners insist that crew sign a waiver, I'm not one of them, but just for fun I put one together.

2014 Bootlegger Racing Team Crew Release

 I, _________________________________crew for the yacht BOOTLEGGER accept full responsibility for the conduct of myself, each member of my family, and my guests of the 2014 Bootlegger Racing Team, except for the following individuals who have been previously incarcerated:
Name                                            Registered Address                           DOC #
__________________             ____________________________           _________
__________________             ____________________________           _________

The Bootlegger Racing Team is in no freaking way responsible for accidental pregnancies, DUI’s, damage or injury to borrowed cars or yachts, arising from any cause during or related to any race or activities of the Bootlegger Racing Team within a 7 year period. Weather and sea conditions will occur. As crew I must be evaluated by a Psychiatrist in determining whether it is proper to participate. The responsibility of wearing a life jacket rests upon me and the current fashion. If any assistance is provided by the other crew members, it is at the risk of my own sweet ass. I realize who I am dealing with here.

I hereby agree to most of the Conditions of the Bootlegger Racing Team and shall hide such information from each member of my family; specifically, my spouse. I hereby warrant that I will be outfitted, equipped and handled in accordance with Government Regulations re: the lowest bidder; that I will have all of the required weapons aboard; that Bootlegger has a marginally seaworthy hull, rig and gear; that she will be completely out of control most times. 

In consideration of your accepting my entry for the Bootlegger Racing Team, I do for myself, my lawyers’, my arms dealer’s and money launderer’s, assigns, waive and release any and all claims that I have against the Bootlegger Racing Team except for The Board of Directors, any Restaurateur who poisons me; or any other sponsor who forces me to wear their stupid hat. Further, I hereby assign, waive and release any and all claims that I have against the Bootlegger Racing Team that arise from my own incompetency including but not limited to: tacking, jibing, mark roundings, chute sets, chute take-downs, poor steering, docking, un-docking, getting off the boat or staggering to wrong vehicle. This includes any involuntary strangulation, blinding, dismemberment, nut cutting or boob bobbing that may occur in said maneuvers. I understand that the Bootlegger Racing Team, their officers, directors, members, committee men/women, volunteers, wonks, groupies, hanger-ons, employees and agents live outside the country and are difficult to find.
