Terms amd Conditions – you keep this page

Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC)

Your club has been granted CASC status, as such there are benefits in that we get reductions in rates also there are tax benefits, one of a number of conditions is that CASC status is only granted to a club were their members participate in the sport either as in our case sailing (leisure or racing) or doing duties associated with the sport eg officiating in club racing in any capacity

We meet these conditions, but at least 50% of our total members (which includes social) must do 12 sailing or duties per year, this will change for new members as we move through the year

There is a box on page 1 of the membership form for you to tick to say that you can comply

Limitation of Club Liability

Members, their guests or visitors may use the club facilities, entirely at their own risk and in so doing accept the following conditions:

General exclusion of liability

       The club accepts no liability for damage or loss of personal property whilst at the club.

       The club accepts no liability for personal injury arising out of the use of the club facilities or the actions of any club member.

       Before inviting any guests or visitors to the premises or to participate in events organised by the club, members will draw their attentions to this rule. N.B: Such visitors must be signed in using the Visitors Book.

Health Risks

       The water in the Welsh Harp Reservoir may contain blue-green algae or Leptospirosis (Weils disease); certain health risks may exist. The secretary may from time to time post notices on the club notice board advising of such risks. Wembley Sailing Club shall not accept any liability for any such health risks.

Racing/Leisure Sailing

It must be recognised that sailing is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By taking part in the course you agree and acknowledge that:

(i)You are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and you accept responsibility exposing yourself to such inherent risk whilst taking part in the sailing course;

(ii)You will comply at all times with the sailing instructions particularly with regard to handling of boats, wearing of buoyancy aids (if requested)  and the wearing of suitable clothing for the conditions;

(iii) You accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by your own negligence;

iv)  You will not participate in an event if your ability to crew a dinghy is impaired by alcohol, drugs or whilst  otherwise unfit to participate;

(v) Moreover, every competitor is responsible for his boat(s) whilst at the club.

Boat Licenses

       It is a condition laid down by the WHSA (the governing body of the Harp) that boat licenses are only issued to fully paid up members of a constituent club.

       Boat Licenses for existing members are due on 1st April each year and for new members when they join and bring their boat to the club.  Boats kept in the dinghy park must display their licence on the mast above the cover, or when this is not practical as in a Laser then on the stern of the boat.

       Boats are not allowed to be sailed or to gain points in any race series prior to the purchase of a licence (you have until 30th April before this comes into force, but if you havent paid by then any points gained prior to 30th April will be lost).

       Unlicensed boats remaining on a berth must be removed from the site by 30th April.

       Boats kept at home and brought to the Harp to race or sail still require a license, except for Open Meetings.

       The license is to sail on the Harp and not keep your boat in the dinghy park.

Boat Insurance

       Members are responsible for the safety and management of their own boats

       Boat owners must have suitable insurance covering all boats kept or used at the club. This must provide third party cover up to a minimum of 2,000,000

Provision of rescue facilities

       The Sailing Club will provide safety boat cover during all scheduled club activity. At all other times Members shall organise their own safety cover; the clubs facilities are available for such purpose for qualified helms


       Club boats may only be used by full members when a manned rescue boat is on the water

Junior members

       Parents and guardians accept that the club is only able to provide rescue facilities during the hours of organised club sailing.

       At all other times parents and guardians have sole responsibility for arranging suitable rescue facilities for their children and wards.

       Junior members shall wear approved buoyancy aids whilst afloat or on the pontoons. Parents shall supervise their children at all times whilst on club premises unless under the supervision of a nominated adult, the club will not provide any childcare facilities.


       As a condition of membership each member shall carry out some during the year.

       To be excluded from rostered duties, there is a fee of 80 per member.

       Members will be allocated duties via the Dutyman system. Members will be reminded of any forthcoming duty on multiple occasions via email.
