SER for Hamble Classics Regatta extended for 2024

Hamble Classics Regatta by Rick Tomlinson

The Rating Office has extended the offer of using Single Event Ratings at Hamble Classics Regatta for 2024, for boats racing in the IRC-rated classes.

The 9th Hamble Classics Regatta will be held on 31 August – 1 September 2024, 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 2024 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 less than £40.00. 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.
