The RORC Rating Office team is working remotely and continuing to provide the excellent service expected from owners, clubs and the industry around the world.
As all sailors are looking forward to when they’ll be able to get out on the water again after the imposed break, this is an ideal time to talk to your sailmaker, rigger or designer about any adjustments you could make to your boat and run an IRC trial to see the potential effect of the changes. Until 31st May the RORC Rating Office is cutting the cost of Spinlock IRC trial certificates by 25% for British owned boats holding a 2020 IRC certificate, and most IRC Rule Authorities whose certificates are issued by RORC will also be offering this discount.
In line with normal IRC policy we will continue to have a limitation on how many trials may be requested in the certificate year; please check the published policy on the IRC website at ircrating.org/irc-rule. Trial certificates allow current certificate holders to investigate the potential effects of data changes without affecting their valid rating; if you do not yet hold a 2020 IRC certificate you will need to revalidate it first and this also provides you with the new rating as it may have changed with the 2020 software updates.
British-based owners should apply for their Spinlock IRC ratings online through the RORC Rating Office’s MyIRC online portal at myirc.rorcrating.com, while owners of boats based in other countries should contact their local IRC Rule Authority – contact details can be found on ircrating.org.
