Every yacht participating in any STYC racing event must have liability insurance currently in effect that covers property damage, personal injury, and death, in an amount not less than $300,000 USD per occurrence; the policy must cover yacht racing activities. Yacht owners acknowledge that the decision to enter their yacht and participate in any race is solely their own, and agree to be bound by the Racing Rules of Sailing as adopted by US Sailing, including national prescriptions, except as modified by the Vessel Traffic Safety Rules, the organizers, and the Race Notice for the event. Each racing skipper shall monitor VHF channel 14 when in the vicinity of and while occupying the VTS lanes.
Most of our races will have trophies available at the awards party following the race. If you do not pick up your trophy, you will need to contact the Race Committee Chair to make arrangements to get your trophy. We will generally bring unclaimed trophies to the Spring and Fall Membership Parties, and to the Christmas party. Any trophy that is not claimed by the Christmas Party will be disposed of. For the helmet stickers of Ballard Cup, you must be present at the post race awards to claim your sticker.
If an event specific item (such as T-Shirts) is purchased from The Sloop Tavern Yacht Club, it will be available for pickup at the event.
There are no refunds, except for correcting errors made. If an error is made purchasing something from us, we will do whatever it takes to fix the problem.
