Sail-World.com : IRC Championship 2014 - 30th anniversary on the horizon
IRC Championship 2014 - 30th anniversary on the horizon

'2013 RORC IRC National Championship'    RORC/Paul Wyeth

Whether sailing a veteran racer or a brand new production boat, owners can find good competition around the country in IRC regattas this season. If your boat has a long history of IRC racing there is also an extra incentive for you to enter one of the Spinlock IRC Championships in 2014.

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of IRC, Spinlock will be offering the prize of a Deckvest Lite Lifejacket and a Deckpack to one boat at each of the Championships. These special prizes will be awarded to the boat with the oldest IRC certificate number that completes the event. There are nine events around the UK for owners to choose from and, as they are all on different weekends, why limit yourself to competing in only one?

The Spinlock Deckvest Lite is an ultra lightweight lifejacket perfect for inshore sailing, while the Deckpack is a smart, lightweight backpack perfect for stashing the day's essentials!

James Hall of Spinlock is looking forward to the season: 'Spinlock is proud to be supporting IRC, particularly in its 30th year. We are very pleased to recognise boats that have been racing under IRC and CHS since its earlier days with these special prizes. The great spread of different designs racing in IRC is testament to its ability to provide great racing between boats old and new.'

The first IRC Championship of the year starts on 31st May with the opening race of the IRC Solent Championship, which includes seven races on weekends between May and September.

The other eight IRC Championships are two or three day events. In June, those in Scotland should head to Mudhook YC for the Scottish Championship, while in the south the RORC's IRC National Championship and the Royal Southampton YC's Double-handed Championship will be taking place in the Solent.

The summer months boast four Championships starting with the Small Boat Regatta in July for boats rating under 0.960, this year hosted by the RAF Yacht Club. In early August, Pwllheli SC will be running the Welsh IRC Championship for the first time, while boats in the South-West will battle it out at Falmouth Week. Ramsgate Week incorporates the East Coast Championship, while last but definitely not least, the IRC Championships culminate with the inaugural Channel Islands Championship at the UBS Jersey Regatta in mid-September.
