Our PR & Marketing Consultant, Peta Stuart-Hunt of PR Works, has agreed to share some of basics she has been employing over some 30 years of working with clients in the marine leisure market.
- Want to promote your IRC events?
- Looking at using PR to help attract more members?
- Planning to stage a media event?
- Announcing any major new initiatives to the press?
- Inviting any VIPs to the Club this year?
If you answer 'yes' to one or more of these questions and think you could do with some guidance, read on!

Have you raced in a regatta and then cruised with the family around the area?
We are looking for a few IRC sailors who use their boat for cruising as well as racing, and more specifically those who have been to a major regatta and combined it with a cruise/family holiday on the boat. This would be for a potential article instigated by the Rating Office about 'getting maximum value from your boat', with the aim of publication in a relevant sailing magazine and/or we may consider publishing any contributions in next year's IRC Yearbook.
We know that a lot of you sail your boat to events outside your usual racing area; however what we are more interested in are those who have taken the boat to an event (perhaps one of the many IRC Championships around the country!?), then been for a cruise around the area with the family.
Thank you to those of you who have already emailed about this article.

With 2014 marking the 30th Anniversary of the IRC rating rule, a major milestone in the provision of fair and simple ratings for racing sailors around the world, the RORC Rating Office is requesting your help to record some of your most memorable racing moments, either during this landmark year or from the past 30 years, for publication in the 2015 IRC Yearbook.

It has come to our attention that IRC Notice 2013-03 Mast Foot & Forestay was misleading regarding when a boat would incur an increase in rating for an adjustable mast foot and/or forestay.
The wording has therefore been updated for clarification and published on the IRC website.
The IRC Technical Committee apologises for any confusion.

For 2014, the IRC Technical Committee has made a number of changes to the calculation of IRC TCCs.
Most of these have small effects, or affect only a small minority of boats. In a number of cases, they either simplify the IRC software or make it more logical, without intent to change TCCs. Any effects in these cases are therefore also small and are not discussed in the published document (link below).
