IRC's first World Championship
2018 was the inaugural combined IRC/ORC Offshore World Championships, held in The Hague (Netherlands) in July. An innovative solution to unite the world's two largest offshore racing fleets, the event was scored jointly with IRC and ORC for the first time, and the entry list included an eclectic mix of boat designs. 

Tell your friends! End of season 50% discount
Do you have friends who can't decide whether or not to get an IRC rating and join you racing this autumn? We offer a 50% end of season discount on new applications and revalidations for certificates issued from 1st September (expiring 31st December).

Fees will be discounted on MyIRC from Monday 27th August.

We have exciting news! We have been working hard on improving services to owners, and are pleased to announce that you can now find your IRC certificates in your account in MyIRC.

Please note that this only applies to certificates issued after 17th July.
Farewell to Charlene
Many of you will have talked to Technical Team member Charlene Jackson over the last four years. Charlene dealt with many of the British IRC fleet and has been integral to the running of the Start Up scheme for new IRC clubs. Charlene has recently moved on to a new job, and her special brand of humour will be missed in the office!

We know that Charlene will appreciate us including a photo of her on her Dutch bike at the Offshore Worlds in the Hague!
