Club activities are planned well in advance, based upon available local knowledge and cannot take into account weather, sea state, conditions at the proposed destination, or other factors that may affect the actual cruise. I, as captain of my vessel, understand I must make the final decisions as to conditions that affect me. I must also evaluate my boat's capabilities, my own skills and experience, to make the final decision as to whether to go or cancel a trip or when selecting a safe boat speed, route, and the multitude of other operational decisions that are necessary in boating.
