Before you revalidate...

Some tips before you Revalidate your IRC Certificate……

  • Check through last year's certificate thoroughly, including details such as single furling headsails. If you don't have a copy we can supply this.


  • Is all the information about your boat on the certificate correct to the best of your knowledge (note that we may have used ‘standard hull data’)? Did you supply the data, or does it date from a previous ownership? How recently was it supplied, particularly sail data? Contact us if you're not sure, we can help & advise you.


  • Please check we have your correct personal details especially the e-mail address - your new certificate will be emailed to you (we will also send a printed copy to your UK address if requested).




  • Make sure you tell us of any changes at the same time as applying for the revalidation. If you tell us after we have issued the certificate then you will need to pay for an amended certificate fee. If some measurements are coming from a sailmaker or measurer, let us know so that we can hold your application until we receive them.

IRC Late season discount

Late Season IRC discount offered by the RORC Rating Office

Because of annual program development, all IRC certificates have to be renewed each year, so cannot run for 12 months from the time of application. To spread the cost of running IRC and its development evenly over the fleet, the cost of the certificate is the same no matter when in the year you apply. However, if you don’t need a certificate until late in the season don’t be put off by the cost - the RORC Rating Office offers a late season discount.
