Important news for Clubs and Owners regarding Crew Number
Historically, IRC Rules did not automatically invoke crew limitations.
As a change for 2011, this position is reversed. IRC Rule 22.4.2 now says:
22.4.2 The Crew Number printed on each boat's certificate shall not be exceeded or the crew weight shall not exceed 85kg multiplied by the Crew Number printed on the certificate.
Unless therefore, as permitted by Rule 22.4.3, a Notice of Race says something different, then crew limitations will be in force.
