The full IRC Rule text can appear long and complex to the untrained eye! While there is no substitute for being familiar with all the rules, while you are examining them this simplified version might be helpful. However, this version is not definitive and there may be exceptions – do not rely on this document in a protest meeting!

Getting the measure of you in 2013 with Spinlock IRC incentives
For 2013 the RORC Rating Office is offering two extra Spinlock IRC incentives, for owners having their boat weighed by a RORC measurer, and those buying a boat that holds a current IRC certificate.

Mike Urwin, RORC Technical Manager, has now finished his grand tour of Great Britain! The general consensus from the cruiser racer seminars is that they were very worthwhile, and we were pleased with the encouraging response from clubs and sailors alike. Thank you to all the clubs that hosted seminars and to those who attended, especially those that braved snow and ice to be there!

If you are a boat owner or representative, you may have a few questions about the IRC Advocate scheme, we will try and answer some of them here!
Why do you need Advocates, surely the Rating Office can answer any questions I have?
Of course the Rating Office can answer your questions and will happily do so. However, we felt that it would be helpful to owners to have somebody locally (perhaps a familiar face) who they can call or sit down with, maybe in their local club, to go through things they are stuck on or are having trouble understanding. Maybe you are struggling with the details of the application form, or are not sure about some of the IRC rules. IRC Advocates have usually been through the application process themselves, and have the added advantage of being able to see things from an owner's point of view!

A network of GBR IRC representatives whose role is to help and encourage new and existing IRC owners, and offer advice on the use of IRC within their club and/or region, is being put in place by the RORC Rating Office in Lymington, Hampshire under the direction of Technical Director Mike Urwin.
The Rating Office's intention is that GBR IRC Advocates will become the focal point for IRC questions in their local area, answering queries relating to IRC or directing these to the central advisory team at the Rating Office. Advocates won't have jurisdiction in any dispute or any role in the interpretation of IRC Rules, and they will not necessarily be measurers; however, measurers may be Advocates.
