WAIVER I, ____________________, do herby release and forever discharge from personal injury, loss of life, or liability, the Fredericton Youth Sailing School, the City of Fredericton, the Small Craft Aquatic Centre, the Fredericton Yacht Club, the Canadian Yachting Association, their employees or agents, and do further agree not to make claims or cause any action. I have been advised of the Sailor’s Code of Conduct and the consequences should an incident occur. ________________________________________ ________________________________ Signature Date SAILOR’S CODE OF CONDUCT The Sailor’s Code of Conduct has been developed to let you, student sailors, know how the instructors expect you to act during your time at the Fredericton Youth Sailing School program. Appropriate behavior will allow you to become well-rounded, self-confident sailors. We here at the Fredericton Youth Sailing School program expect the highest level of sportsmanship, teamwork, fair play, and good behavior. Your behavior, either on or off the water, should be to maintain this level of sportsmanship and conduct and make other sailors proud to be a part of the FYSS program. The use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco of any kind is strictly prohibited. In order to achieve this we ask that you follow these guidelines: Sail for fun and the love of the sport. Enjoy yourself. Work hard to improve your skills. Listen, ask questions, and watch others to see how you can better your skills. Be a team player – get along with your teammates. Appreciate the contributions each person makes to the team. Learn the rules, and play by them. Always be a good sport and set a positive example for others, particularly younger sailors. We expect you to: Use good language – the use of profanity, obscene language, or obscene gestures is not permitted. Respect your instructors and your teammates. The rules of the Canadian Yachting Association and FYSS are to be observed by all. Absolutely no unsportsmanlike conduct will be tolerated. Be on time for lessons. Attend regularly – you need to develop your individual skills, sailing fundamentals, as well as develop team discipline, unity, spirit, commitment, and loyalty. NEVER participate in any physical violence or fighting under any circumstances. If you do not follow the Sailor’s Code of Conduct, depending on the severity and the regularity of the violation, the following steps will be taken: 1) Sailor suspended for 1 day. 2) Sailor suspended for balance of session (pro-rated refund). ________________________________________ ________________________________ Signature Date Fredericton Youth Sailing School Adult Learn to Sail Program Medical Form NAME: _______________________________________________________________________ FAMILY PHYSICIAN: _________________________________ PHONE # : ________________ NB MEDICARE NUMBER: _______________________________________________________ EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION – PLEASE PROVIDE EVENING CONTACT NAME AND PHONE NUMBER: NAME: _______________________________________________________________________ PHONE NUMBER(S): ____________________________ _____________________________ Do you have any allergies?

Should you have any other questions, feel free to contact us by phone 460-2260 or by email email@example.com Q: How are students evaluated? A: Our instructors evaluate students daily, on water and on land. Evaluation is ongoing, and includes sailing skills, and participation. Evaluation forms are filled out for each participant at the end of each session. Q: Is attendance mandatory for all courses? A: It is highly recommended that you register for a program that you will be able to commit to all the scheduled lessons. Lessons are held regardless of the weather as there are always dry-land lessons that can be taught. For the evening courses, missing more than 2 or 3 classes can greatly influence your learning. Q: Is there a maximum or minimum number of sailors that will be accepted for a session? A: Yes. The program would suffer from quality and safety perspectives if we accept too many sailors and it is not feasible to run a program with too few. Should a program be cancelled due to lack of participants, full refunds will be issued. List of Things to Bring: CSA or Canadian Coast Guard approved life jacket or PFD (personal flotation device). This must fit properly and be in good condition. If it is too large, too small, or torn, it is not safe. A whistle should be attached to the PFD. Plenty of water and maybe some snacks. A lunch is needed for the weekend courses. Sunscreen. Remember that the sun’s UV rays are more intense on the water than on land (even in the evenings). Sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection. A hat with a clip or twine so it can be tied to my PFD and won’t be lost. Fast drying, soft soled shoes (no dark soles), or sandals (no flip-flops) and a second pair of shoes that I won’t get wet. Your shoes should fit properly and not fall off while swimming. A large beach towel and bathing suit. At least one complete change of clothes. A small notepad and pencil. It is very helpful to take notes during lessons. Students may also purchase CYA Sailing Manuals appropriate to their level from the Fredericton Youth Sailing School.
