Bermuda-Hamburg Race 2017 IRC Prescription

aar 2017In accordance with IRC Rule 11.2, the GBR IRC Rule Authority prescribes that for the Bermuda-Hamburg Race 2017, IRC Rule 21.6.1 is varied to the extent that a boat may carry one more spinnaker than shown on her current certificate of area not greater than rated SPA without an increase in rating.

This prescription is valid for the 2017 Bermuda-Hamburg Race, which together with the RORC Transatlantic Race forms the Atlantic Anniversary Regatta.

A large number of these boats rarely seem to leave the marinas, and many don’t join the local yacht club or use their facilities, simply finding a good local pub, or bar attached to the marina office instead.
