    Reported today a man lost a claim for £5M was rejected by the courts regarding a man who broke his neck while involving himself in a charitable exercise. So how will the new regatta managing committee handle this?

      liability is to WRL and LIMITED to it
      without WRL in place liability would be held by comittee members and the rowing clubs. bankrupting them all and stopping the event.
      With all insurance policies the injured party has to accept settlement and can refuse all offers. at the end of this process it may goto court and individuals respomsible for organising the event can be held responsible. should this happen now WRL would take LIMITED responsability.
      check the law
      ask the owners and those respomsible for real whitby they are responsible for published content and if taken to court would stand to loose everything we would have to presume

    I think that Tom Brown makes a key point. If someone slips on a piece of refuse, falls and breaks a leg at the regatta, nowadays they will sue for hundreds of thousands and win. This will bankrupt every member of the Regatta Committee.

    WRL claimed in a statement to the press that the new company will protect the Regatta Committee members from liability for the debts of the Regatta. Thanks to Nigel’s patient investigative journalism this is now exposed as a lie. It won’t, becuse it has nothing to do with the organisation and running of the Regatta and may not even have public liability insurance.

    Councillor Kenyon needs to come out, explain her actions and say what the situation is.

    Please see below the link to Councillor Kenyon’s Register of interests in the North Yorkshire Police Authority. As you can see:

    1. No mention of Whitby Regatta Committee, although she is President of it and it is active.

    2. She holds out that Whitby Regatta Limited is a charity when it is a commercial company.

    3. She describes herself as President of Whitby Regatta Limited when she is a Director.

    Under the Localism Act 2011 thse are criminal offences. What is going on?

    Name and shame the ‘Common Purpose’ borough and county ‘Officers’ who are prepared to lie. We pay them others control them. the pathetic fools imagine that their future is assured as a result of their common purpose membership. Sorry there are not enough elite places to accommodate you all.

    So Nigel, when you were donating money to the regatta as you stated above, were you donating to the Regatta Committee, Whitby Regatta Ltd or to Jane Kenyon herself. May I suggest next time you cut out the middle man and simply pop the cash through Jane Kenyan’s door. I might send her a couple of quid myself.

    PS. Regarding the above, your point 7 was my Favorite.

      I agree that we have passed the threshold of absurdity now. The authorities must SHUN the old crow in five easy stages:

      SuspenSHUN

      InvestigaSHUN

      ProsecuSHUN

      ConvicSHUN

      IncarceraSHUN

      And the old conman as well.
