The International IRC Rating Rule, jointly owned by the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) and l’Union Nationale pour la Course au Large (UNCL) will be attracting boats from all over the world to the port of Crosshaven in Ireland this year. From 10th to 15th July 2016 the Inaugural European IRC Championship will be take place during the already well-established and popular Volvo Cork Week hosted by the Royal Cork YC, the world’s oldest yacht club.
You may have seen a press release this week (14 March) by the ORC following a visit to Ireland. Please see the following RORC response.
We read with interest, and some confusion, the press release by the ORC [published on 15th March re visit to Ireland] and feel very strongly that the information put forward by Dobbs Davies, Chairman of ORC’s Promotion and Development Committee, needs correcting.
