Yachting Australia is offering a 50 per cent discount period for all 2012 end-of-season IRC certificates issued during 1 March and 31 May 2013. The offer will be extended to all Australian boat owners, and provides a substantial saving for those owners wishing to race in the closing months of the current IRC year.
The discounted prices for certificates obtained during this period are as follows:
New Applications $14.50/m
(Prices above exclude GST)
The discount offer presents an opportunity to new IRC applicants in particular, who can use this period to learn more about the IRC rule and it’s applicability without having to commit to a fully-paid rating.
There are a number of regattas that will take place around Australia between now and the end of the current IRC year on 31 May 2013. These include the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, Sail Port Stephens, Sydney Harbour Regatta and FSC Sprint Series.
Please note that this offer is applicable for 2012 IRC applications only. Regular prices will apply to any applications received for 2013 IRC ratings during this time.
