The party’s on the water! - Record that magic moment for posterity Royal Ocean Racing Club - RORC © http://www.rorc.org
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.

The Rating Office's Technical Manager, Jenny Howells, explains: 'Wherever you are IRC racing this year when something amazing, significant or memorable happens, we would love you to record it for posterity in 150 words or less with a captioned photograph if possible, and email your contribution to us by Friday 19th September 2014. Alternatively, why not cast your mind back and tell us about your personal 'magic moment' in your racing history from the past 30 years.'

Up to six of the best contributions will be selected for publication in the next IRC Yearbook, published by Yachting World in January 2015.
