"I do some short-handed racing (1 or 2 people), and use a different configuration than when racing fully crewed"

You can hold a second, 'short-handed' certificate. IRC Rule 8.2 gives details of which measurements or confifgurarion may differ from the primary certificate, and when the short-handed certificate may be used.

Please note that the crew number itself has no effect on the rating, so you do not need a separate short-handed certificate if the boat will be in the same configuration as when fully crewed.

You must hold a current, valid IRC certificate before applying for a short-handed certificate.

Please save and complete the relevant form below and then apply through MyIRC.
