Insurance Liability Waiver

MANTA is committed to conducting its programs and activities in the safest manner possible and holds the well-being of participants in the highest possible regard. Participants and parents must recognize, however, there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to take part in sailing activitieso. MANTA continually strives to reduce such risks and insists all participants follow safety rules and instructions designed to protect participant’s safety. Please recognize MANTA does not carry any form of insurance cover for accidents or property or others as this would render the program fees prohibitive (if available for the new sport of sailing in Vietnam). Absence of insurance does not make MANTA Sail Training Centre automatically responsible for payment of any medical expenses.

Due to the absence of appropriate insurance for dinghy sailing in Vietnam, execution of the following Waiver and Release is required. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Please read this form carefully and be aware that in participating in the sailing, you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries you might sustain arising out of the activities of the program.
