Remember that water sports are a potentially dangerous activity. Each participant is responsible for assessing his or her own ability and from refraining from activities that are beyond their limits. The club, its officers and members simply cannot and do not take responsibility for anyone whether they are participating in a planned or spontaneous club activity.
Only YOU are responsible for your actions and safety. READ the Safety Code. It was adapted from the Safety Code of the American Whitewater to serve as a guideline for river trips.
As stated in the code, “A river trip should be regarded as a common adventure by ALL participants…. Participants share the responsibility for the conduct of the trip and each participant is individually responsible for judging his or her own capabilities and for his or her own safety as the trip progresses. Participants are encouraged (but are not obligated) to offer advice and guidance for independent consideration and judgment of others.”
Members assume any and all risk when choosing to participate in an activity and Borderline Boaters, its officers and members are not responsible for any damages resulting from such participation.
