A. Membership Agreement
Waiver of Liability
The following is an extract of the “Hold Harmless” agreement that is contained in the Britannia Yacht Club By-Law:
Notwithstanding any offer or provision of services by the Club whether for a fee or gratuitously, all members on application and acceptance of membership in the Club or on annual renewal of membership, acknowledge that the Club is not liable to members for any loss or damage suffered by such members to their property arising whether through acts of negligence of officers, other members or employees in the launching, hauling, storing or moving of their boats or equipment, in the conduct of racing or other activities of the Club, or in the occupation and control of the Club’s property by virtue of any relationship of bailor or bailee, and all members acknowledge and accept that any such liability shall be borne by them.
B. Mooring Agreement
If allocated a mooring:
I will obey all Britannia Yacht Club Harbour and Safety Rules and Regulations.
I certify that I am either:
- the sole owner of the above boat, or
- the “designated” owner of the boat (Note: Moorings will only be assigned to a sole owner, or a “designated” owner. If a boat is owned in partnership, the partners are to designate one of their number as a “designated” owner for the mooring application and other Britannia Yacht Club ownership responsibilities.)
I will advise the manager of Britannia Yacht Club, in writing, within fourteen days of any change in ownership noted above.
I accept the “Hold Harmless” Agreement, a copy of which is printed above.
C. Chit Privileges
Any member in good standing may use the chit privilege upon acceptance of application.
The chit privilege may be used to charge to the member’s account any purchases made from the Club, including gas dock, boutique, dining room and bar purchases but it may not be used to pay membership, harbour or initiation fees nor to pay for private functions.
Chit privilege charges to a member’s account will be accumulated each month. An invoice and/or statement for the unpaid balance of the account plus a $5.00 administration charge will be mailed to the member. If the full amount is not paid within 30 days from the date of invoice/statement, the amount will be charged to the member’s credit card account.
If the amount charged is not accepted on the credit card account, the member will become liable for the full amount owing and if this amount is not paid within 60 days of the date of the invoice/statement, the member’s Club privileges may be suspended in accordance with Club By-Law No. 1, Section 7.2.2. Persons suspended under this provision will have their chit privilege suspended for the remainder of the calendar year and must then reapply to have the privilege reinstated. A second suspension will result in further applications being denied.
