Spinlock continues GBR Championship support

Sailors in the UK are enjoying spring racing and looking forward to the summer season, including the varied selection of International Rating Certificate (IRC) Championships which will again be supported by hardware experts Spinlock, now in their 6th season as sponsor of IRC.

As well as enjoying the great racing and social programmes, competitors will be competing for IRC Champion status and the exciting Spinlock special prize package. James Hall, Spinlock Sales and Marketing Manager, is enthusiastic about the IRC Championships:

spinlock irc champs logo web“Spinlock are pleased to support the IRC Championships again in 2018 and encourage competitive IRC racing around the regions. We are thrilled to provide a trophy, £250 Spinlock Voucher and a Deck Pack for each Championship winner.”

Regional IRC Championships are held all around the British coast from Scotland to the Channel Islands, as well as a specific event for Double Handed crews, providing a large variety of venues, racing conditions and social events to be enjoyed both on and off the water. Some events will incorporate other classes racing in IRC, for instance the HP30 class will hold its National Championship at Poole Regatta; Scottish Series is a major event in the RC35 annual class championship, and along with the Welsh National IRC Championship is also part of the Celtic Cup incorporating events in Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

Two new GBR IRC Championships announced

The International Rating Certificate (IRC), sponsored by Spinlock, is a global rating rule used for hundreds of events in 40 countries. In UK waters IRC competition is fierce both for the National Championship, organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, and for regional championships which range from Scotland to the Channel Islands.

Two new IRC Championships have been added for 2017: an Inland Championship on Lake Windermere and an Autumn Championship organised by Hamble River SC – both add an extra challenge to an existing winter series. In addition to regional events there are championships for Small Boats and Double Handed crews.
