WINSOME to enter IRC national Championship

July 3, 2013

This weekend yachts from Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, South Africa and the United Kingdom will gather in the Solent for the twelfth edition of the RORC IRC National Championship.

The first ever RORC IRC National Championship took place in 2002 and since then, all over the world, national championships using the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s IRC rating system have been established. The RORC IRC National Championship has always taken place in the United Kingdom but it is an open event to all and considered to be arguably the most competitive IRC championship in the world.

Winsome has sailed this event before. It is not the best racecourse for the old lady as the racing around the cans is limited in distance, giving the lighter boats a competitive edge. However, it is an ideal setup for the weekend to train the crew for cowesweek, giving us a jumpstart in August. We are looking forward to a great weekend!
