After extreme scrutiny ISAF has authorised the first ISAF Recognized Rating System for a broad spectrum of multi-crewed offshore yachts.
This recognition, which was finalised during the 2003 ISAF November Conference has been asked for by many of the ISAF Member National Authorities who have local racing without a national rating office, and who want certificates that can be accessed, cheaply and electronically from a central source.
To apply for an IRC rating you need to complete the application form, which can be obtained by:
- Phone or write to RORC for an application form on:
Royal Ocean Racing Club Rating Office
Tel: +44 1590 677030
Fax: +44 1590 679478
Website address: www.rorcrating.com
- If you are using Microsoft Excel you can download
an Excel based application form, or
- Print out the Application Form
(PDF file) which you can then fax or post to the rating office with your payment.
If you have a one-design, you may be able to use a simplified form. Check the list of eligible designs
You should allow time for the application to be processed, as applications can take as long as 3 or 4 weeks during January - August
