Once again, Ramsgate Week offers a flexible program for IRC classes, with a mid week series from Monday - Wednesday and this year they will host the IRC East Coast Championships for classes zero through three from Thursday - Saturday. The ever popular cruiser classes will run throughout the week.

Sailing Program:

IRC Coastal Series - IRC Classes one through three series of coastal races, one race per day from Monday to Wednesday with the Wednesday race being the 'Round the Goodwin Sands'.

IRC Regional East Coast Championship - IRC Classes zero to three series of six races with two 'Round the Cans' races on Thursday; three Windward - Leeward races on Friday and one on Saturday for the famous Gold Cup.
