Yachting Australia to host IRC Owners' Forums in May

by Craig Heydon on 27 Apr 2011
. .
Yachting Australia will be hosting two owner-focused IRC forums in May to coincide with a visit from RORC Chief Measurer, James Dadd, from the UK.

The forums will be held in Sydney and Melbourne and are well-timed to give owners advice on IRC leading up to the new rating year, which commences on 1 June 2011.


The forums will cater to owners of both existing and potential IRC-rated boats and intend to cover the following topics:

· What is IRC and how is it managed?
· Why get your boat rated for IRC?
· Ongoing development of the IRC rule
· Rule changes for 2010 – reflections on the need to change?
· Rule changes for 2011 – what to expect?
· Practical application of the IRC rule
· Q&A session

Details for each forum are as follows:

Sydney – Wednesday 11 May
Venue: Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Kirribilli
Time: 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start
Room: Kirribilli Room

Melbourne – Thursday 12 May
Venue: Royal Brighton Yacht Club, Middle Brighton
Time: 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start
Room: Olympic Room
