Welcome to the new RORC Rating Office website!

We hope you like the new look for our website!     Apart from the visual change, the main difference you will notice is that under the IRC section, there is a lot less information; this is because RORC & UNCL have just launched a brand new, dedicated IRC website at www.ircrating.org; there are more details about this below.  

www.rorcrating.com now becomes dedicated to those boats that are based in Great Britain and the Channel Islands, so only includes those items that are specific to those boats, eg. rating application forms, fees, sail numbers, etc.   In effect it becomes the site of the GBR Rule Authority. 

All general IRC information such as Rule texts, race organiser information and Rule authority contact details, have been transferred to the new IRC site....... 

The first place to get news & information on IRC: www.ircrating.org

The Royal Ocean Racing Club and the Union National pour la Course au Large joint owners of the IRC Rule, have given IRC its very own website.

 We felt it was time to give IRC its own identity now that it  is established in over 38 countries worldwide," commented RORC Technical Manager, Jenny Howells. "The web site is designed for sailors to get information about IRC including news and technical guidance. We hope to get feedback from the visitors to the web site, to make it as useful and practical as possible."

The new web site is packed with information, with news feeds from both the RORC rating office and UNCL, new boat information from builders and designers and news of IRC events, race reports and results. A new feature is ‘Concentric cIRCles' covering areas of IRC not usually in the limelight.

It is a one-stop shop for IRC technical information covering all of the following topics:

  • IRC Rules & Definitions
  • Guidance on measurement including stability & safety indexing
  • Worldwide IRC Rule Authorities' details
  • Online TCC listings
  • Race management and advertising guidelines
  • Notices and interpretations
  • Congress and Committee information, including minutes of meetings
  • Online yearbooks from RORC Rating Office and UNCL Centre de Calcul
