On Safety:  We have had the Sirocco Sprint up to speeds of 40 mph in some of our tests on pavement.  Obviously anything that can go this fast has the potential for causing serious injury, maiming or death either to the pilot or a 3rd party.  If you are considering purchasing a Sirocco you should be aware of the following.

While the Sirocco is fun it is not a toy.  Please be safe.  Read and follow all the instructions and warnings that come in the booklet with your Sirocco.  As you are learning, build your skills.  Do not take the land sailor out for the first time in 20 kts of wind.  Also - WEAR A HELMET!  The Sirocco is very stable, but nothing is immune from roll over under the right conditions. 

Always wear a DOT certified motorcycle helmet, gloves and the proper footwear. 

You need to carefully check any area for surface irregularities ie. pot holes or drains that could cause your cart to flip.

You should check the area for low power or phone lines.  The mast is an EXCELLENT electrical conductor.

The Sirocco itself should be carefully checked for any problems ie cracked welds or missing cotter pins every time you sail.  While most failures are not likely to create serious problems, they will certainly wreck you day.

Always pilot your land sailor with control.

 Do not ride where there is traffic.  You will not win a battle with a car.

Be aware of any obstacles in the area ie. light poles or trees

 Do not ride where there are pedestrians, joggers etc.  

Please tread lightly.  If we as pilots are discourteous or tear up parks and beaches the powers that be  will simply ban us from these areas.

 

LIABILITY WAIVER

Knowingly, and at my own risk, I am aware that use of the Sirocco Land Sailor exposes me to hazards that may result in injury and death, and also injury to third persons and damage to their personal possessions.

I understand that the Sirocco Land Sailer is capable of dangerous speeds and that a helmet certifiable for motorcycle road use must be worn at all times. I further understand that the user must be vigilant to see that the Land Sailer is under control at all times, even when empty. This requires when the land sailor is standing empty, ready for use, that the Sirocco be left on it's side. The primary means of controlling the speed of the land sailor when in motion is the position of the mainsail, and the vehicle should be brought to a stop primarily by pushing the mainsail to windward, supplemented with judicious use of the handbrake. Like similar vehicles the land sailor will tend to tip in high winds. The mainsail sheet should be eased as soon as the tendency to tip is observed.

I understand further that it is my obligation to fully inspect the ground/course over which the land sailor will be sailed, to ascertain that there is no obstacle, such as curbs, potholes, or other characteristic of the terrain that would render its use hazardous. In that the land sailor mast extends vertically to a height of 15 feet, care must also be taken to take account of, and avoid, such hazards overhead as tree limbs and power lines.

I hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless Wind Line International, and any entity or individual ever associated with Wind Line International, including sponsors and retail organizations, from any and all liability, causes of action, claims, demands, costs or debts of any kind or nature, incurred or arising from or out of my or other's use of the Sirocco Land Sailor on land or ice, whether brought by me, my heirs, executors or assigns, or by third parties.

Non-Legalese Translation:

Be careful!

 If you hit something or somebody, electrocute yourself, get run down on the highway or otherwise do something careless or stupid that hurts you as a pilot or a bystander, we don't want to hear about it.  Darwin refers to this process as "natural selection".
