IRC applications numbers are very encouraging for 2019 and we are excited to see a significant number of applications from owners that are new to IRC. We look forward to another great year for IRC racing at the events at local clubs around the country and at our IRC regional championships and the IRC Nationals.
A large number of owners are now seeing a reduced rating as they carry fewer than 3 spinnakers. We are pleased that this Rule change for 2019 is benefiting those boats for which it was intended.
