A strong line-up, ranging from TP52s, FAST40+s and Performance 40s, down to nimble HP30s and the cruiser-racer majority will take to the Solent this Friday 5th July for three days of intense competition at the Royal Ocean Racing Club's IRC National Championship. The event returns after a year's hiatus when the RORC hosted the IRC European Championship in the Solent.
Spinlock are well established as sponsors of IRC and continue their support of the annual IRC Championships around the UK and Channel Islands.
Competitors can enjoy great racing and social programmes while keeping their eye on the achievement of IRC Champion status and exciting Spinlock prizes. James Hall, Spinlock Sales and Marketing Manager, is enthusiastic about continuing support of the IRC Championships:
"Spinlock are pleased to support the 2019 IRC Championships and continue to encourage competitive IRC racing around the regions. We are thrilled to provide a trophy, £250 Spinlock Voucher, a VITO lifejacket and a Deck Pack for the winners at each of this season’s Championships.”

Ten IRC Championships are held all around the British coast from Scotland to the Channel Islands as well as a specific event for two-handed crews, providing a large variety of venues, racing conditions and social events to be enjoyed both on and off the water. While most events are held over a weekend, some are spread over several weeks or incorporate separate events.
