The 7th Hamble Classics Regatta will be held on 10-11 September 2022, co-hosted by Hamble River Sailing Club and the Royal Air Force Yacht Club. The founding mission of Hamble Classics in 2016 was for a fun and inclusive event where owners of classic yachts and their crews celebrate their shared passion for sailing. The Classics are an important and growing fleet and the RORC Rating Office wish to encourage future participation of classic boats in IRC racing.
The Rating Office is offering a special price for boats entering the IRC classes at this year’s Hamble Classics Regatta. For the 2022 event boats that do not already hold a current IRC certificate may race with a Single Event Rating (SER) by submitting a completed IRC SER application through the RORC Rating Office MyIRC application portal. As an example, the cost for a 10m boat just for these two days of racing would be £32.10. Once a Single Event Rating has been issued there is the option to upgrade to a full certificate at a reduced fee, allowing the boat to enter further IRC events.
For those wishing to apply for a full certificate allowing them to race in any IRC event until 31 December 2022 the IRC new application, revalidation and upgrade fees will be discounted by 50% for certificates issued from 1 September for the end of the season, reducing the cost of a new application for a 10m boat from £125.00 to £62.50. This discount will be applied automatically in MyIRC from 25 August.
