2010 RORC Rating News

As published in Poolside  newsletter 10/03 March 2010

Are you ready for the racing season ahead?

So now the sun is out, you've decided what events you are going to do in 2010 and are thinking about crew, sails and logistics. One of the things that often gets forgotten until the last minute is the rating certificate and associated issues, such as... [click on Read More]

Certificate:  Apply for your 2010 rating certificate in good time, there is nothing to be gained by waiting; in fact it may end up costing you more! If you are waiting for new sail measurements, or plan to have the boat weighed or measured, we advise that you submit your rating application with a note to hold it until the new data is available. That way it is in our queue all ready to be issued when we get the data.

Weighing and measurement:  RORC measurers and weighing loadcells get booked up during the spring and summer, so if you want or need to have your boat weighed or measured please get in touch sooner rather than later.  Often a measurer will arrange to weigh a group of boats together so saving craneage costs.  

Endorsement:  Some events this year will require you to hold an Endorsed certificate, notably the IRC National Championship (RORC); Cork Week and the Rolex Commodores' Cup.  There are of course others and you are strongly advised to check the NOR of events you are thinking of doing, to check. Endorsement means that the rated data has been ‘validated' by the Rating Office and may involve weighing and measurement. Requirements vary depending on the design and the source of the current rated data. Again, please contact us well in advance if you do not already hold an Endorsed certificate and require one.

STIX & AVS:  If you are going to be competing in any offshore races (such the RORC Programme), you may be required to have STIX and AVS stability information on your IRC certificate. Again, please check in the NOR or with the Race Organiser to see whether it is required for your boat. We have STIX and AVS for many production boats, but obtaining the data is an ongoing task. You can check our current list on the IRC website via the Technical/Admin menu; direct link:
