4. I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, and next of kin, HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS Island Marine Adventures and Hans Bongarts, their crew, officials, volunteers, agents, and / or employees, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used to conduct the event (all of whom are referred to as "Releases"). WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.

PERSON WITH A DISABILITY (check here if appropriate)
Island Marine Adventures encourages participation from all individuals (able body and persons with disabilities); but Island Marine Adventures cautions those with disabilities who are involved with the activities of cruising and sailing, as well as their parents, guardians, doctors, etc., that there are risks over and above what an able-bodied individual would face, and that the individuals in question also recognize that the risks involved are worth the benefits that may be received. The captain Hans Bongarts has the last word on participation to ensure the safety and enjoyment of each participant.
