Release of Liability

IN CONSIDERATION for being given the opportunity to participate in rowing and/or coaching activities and/or the use of any Penn Athletic Club Rowing Association (hereinafter referred to as “PACRA”) launches, boats, oars, or other PACRA equipment, I agree to the following: I FULLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that I understand the nature of rowing activities, both on water and land based, and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such Activity.

1. I FULLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that: (a) ROWING ACTIVITIES INVOLVE RISKS AND DANGERS of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death (“Risks”); (b) these risks and dangers may be caused by my own actions, or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the activity, the condition in which the activity takes place, or the negligence of the Release named below; (c) there may be other risks and social and economic losses either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time; and I FULLY ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSSES, COSTS, AND DAMAGES I incur as a result of my participation in the Activity.

2. I FULLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that I will assess each activity in which I take part while participating in coaching, rowing and/or using PACRA equipment and that if I observe any condition which I consider to be unacceptably hazardous or dangerous, I will notify the proper authority in charge of the activity and will refuse to take part in the activity until the condition has been corrected to my satisfaction.

3. I HEREBY RELEASE, discharge, and covenant not to sue PACRA, its Board of Stewards, agents, officers, volunteers and employees from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasee or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this release and waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I WILL INDEMNIFY, SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as a result of such claim, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
