IRC Classes

There will be three IRC classes and the "Rating Bands" for all IRC Classes will be notified to each competitor by an amendment to the Sailing Instructions and will be displayed on the Club's website prior to the first race.

One Design, 2 Handed and ORC Classes with 3 or more entries may have their own start or will have results extracted from their relevant IRC class to form a Class.

Classes 5 & 6 Unrestricted cruiser class with spinnakers. You can enter in the slightly more relaxed RTYC Cruiser division where a simple rating will be allocated to your boat by the Royal Temple Yacht Club. Note that for this option you will need to provide us with measurement details for your boat.

Class 7 Slow cruiser class without spinnakers. This is intended for the less serious racer with non-high tech sails and the use of spinnakers is prohibited. Boats competing in this Class may sail a shorter course than Classes 5 & 6 and will be issued an RTYC Handicap TCF figure by the Royal Temple Yacht Club. Note that for this option you will need to provide us with measurement details for your boat.

Class 8 Classic Class. This is a class for all yachts over 24ft length on deck, built of wood or steel before 1975 or in GRP before 1965. A division for Spirit of Tradition yachts may be allocated for boats built after the above dates to designs that reflect the appearance and virtues of classic yachts.
