"I have just bought a boat that has a current (2015) IRC certificate, and need to transfer it into my name"
You will need to apply for a new certificate, as change of ownership invalidates the certificate. If you are not sure whether the certificate is current you can check on the online listings. You should make sure you have a copy of the last certificate as you need to declare whether there have been any changes and whether details on the certificate are correct. We can help with this if you do not get a copy with the boat.
We are currently offering re-registration at a special rate of just £1.50 per metre (ex VAT).

"I have a current IRC certificate but have made some changes"
If you change anything on the boat, or buy new sails etc. that may affect your IRC Rating, you will need to apply for an amended certificate. You can make any number of changes for the price of one amendment.
If you are not sure whether a change you are making will require an amended certificate, please contact the Rating Office. In some cases we may just ask you to write us a note about a change which we can keep in the file for our information.
Common changes which require an amended certificate are :
- new sails, either larger or smaller
- addition or removal of sails
- new or changed rig details
- added or removed internal ballast
- keel change
- hull change, eg. fairing of IOR crease
If your certificate is Endorsed and you wish to keep the Endorsed status, we will require official verification of the new measurements. For instance, if you are having new sails the new data will need to come from an IHC loft or official measurer on a sail input form (which they should have, or can get from us). In other cases we will need a measurer to check new measurements.
We reserve the right to refuse to amend a certificate if we believe that the amendment is intended to take advantage of specific race conditions (eg. rating with a No.3 only, two days before a weekend when it is forecast to be windy!)
