Sail-World.com : RORC Easter Challenge - A unique training ground for owners and crews
RORC Easter Challenge - A unique training ground for owners and crews


     
RORC Easter Challenge is being held from 29th to 31st March 2013. It will soon be time to go sailing again and anyone wanting to have a go at IRC racing, whilst also benefitting from some personal and practical coaching, can count on the RORC Easter Challenge to deliver the goods over the Easter Bank Holiday.

In addition to offering a unique training ground for owners and crews, the RORC Easter Challenge is the first Solent regatta in 2013 where owners who only compete occasionally can race under IRC at a reduced cost. British owners will be able to enter this event with the new Spinlock IRC Limited Validity (LV) TCC which is valid for the full three days of the regatta. There's more on this here.

Immediate, hands-on, coaching: In a unique initiative, and as the first event in the RORC racing calendar, the RORC Easter Challenge offers on-the-water coaching, comprising immediate and hands-on advice from coaches and sail makers to climb aboard during racing at the request of crews wanting some tuition.

Each day's racing is followed by expert post-race video debriefs in the Events Centre in Cowes Yacht Haven by coaching legend Jim Saltonstall, supported by past Olympian Barry Dunning and America's Cup coach, RORC's CEO Eddie Warden Owen.

There will be a separate race course for J80's and Class 4 IRC, also supported by coaches and sail makers.

Big savings for short-term event racing: The Spinlock IRC Limited Validity (LV) TCC has been launched for 2013 by the Rating Office, the technical centre of the RORC in Lymington. It is aimed at British owners who only plan to enter one or two IRC events a year, or who would like to compete in an IRC event for the first time without committing to a full certificate.

Spinlock IRC LV TCCs are issued by the Rating Office and are compatible with full Spinlock IRC ratings. However, the LV TCC application cost for a 33 ft boat is just £30 for a 3-day event such as the RORC Easter Challenge, a saving of 70% on the fee for a full IRC certificate.

A growing list of regattas around the UK will accept LV TCCs during 2013, in regions ranging from Cornwall to Scotland and including many of the Spinlock IRC Regional Championships. The RORC Rating Office website offers advice for owners contemplating their rating options and clubs wishing to increase participation, and it also provides details of all approved events.

Entries close for the RORC Easter Challenge on 14th March, and interested owners can find the details and enter online.
