The Admiral's Cup has always been the premier RORC event and has been run by them since its inception. The RORC Commodore feels that it is imperative that this situation should continue.
In returning to Cowes, the RORC will retain the two boat Club team and classes that had been previously announced, and the inshore racing will take place in the Solent. The long offshore race will be the Wolf Rock Race. Shorter courses may be set for the IMS600 class.
The Admiral's Cup will be run in co-operation with the Royal Yacht Squadron.
The RORC has been encouraged by the enthusiasm and interest shown in the 2003 event and intends to publish the Notice of Race by 16 November 2002.
