I acknowledge that I may suffer injury or illnesses or medical emergencies in remote places where there are no available medical facilities. I realize that personal property may be lost or damaged; the certain foreseeable and unforeseeable events can contribute to the unpredictability of the risk, dangers and hazards of the activity, that wearing a helmet may be a basic precaution; and that I should ask about potential risks, dangers and hazards and recommended precautions and procedures. I acknowledge and accept that wearing a U.S Coast Guard approved flotation device while in or upon any craft is basic safety precaution and is required.
