Advocate Q & As for owners


If you are a boat owner or representative, you may have a few questions about the IRC Advocate scheme, we will try and answer some of them here!

Why do you need Advocates, surely the Rating Office can answer any questions I have?

Of course the Rating Office can answer your questions and will happily do so. However, we felt that it would be helpful to owners to have somebody locally (perhaps a familiar face) who they can call or sit down with, maybe in their local club, to go through things they are stuck on or are having trouble understanding.  Maybe you are struggling with the details of the application form, or are not sure about some of the IRC rules.  IRC Advocates have usually been through the application process themselves, and have the added advantage of being able to see things from an owner's point of view!

Could you be an IRC Advocate?

spinlock irc logo 160x109

A network of GBR IRC representatives whose role is to help and encourage new and existing IRC owners, and offer advice on the use of IRC within their club and/or region, is being put in place by the RORC Rating Office in Lymington, Hampshire under the direction of Technical Director Mike Urwin.

The Rating Office's intention is that GBR IRC Advocates will become the focal point for IRC questions in their local area, answering queries relating to IRC or directing these to the central advisory team at the Rating Office. Advocates won't have jurisdiction in any dispute or any role in the interpretation of IRC Rules, and they will not necessarily be measurers; however, measurers may be Advocates.
