    You may have noted that your (or a competitor’s) IRC TCC has changed significantly between 2010 and 2011. For 2011, there have been a number of changes to IRC calculation of rating. Because of the confidential nature of IRC, we cannot provide detail of these. We can however note that the change will be related to one of or a combination of the following:

    How to improve your rating...

    The IRC Useful Articles section has been updated with 2 features on improving your IRC Rating by Yachting World's Matt Sheahan.

    Originally published in Yachting World during Feb/March 2010.

    We now have pdf versions of these great features available to download.


    2011 Certificates now being processed.

    Processing of 2011 certificates are now well underway with the first event of the new year, Regatta - Samui less than 2 weeks away.

    For yachts with existing 2009 and 2010 certificates, renewal forms are now available in either Word or pdf format from the download section.


    For New Applications and yachts with certificates dated prior to 2009, new appliaction forms are available Here.

    Please allow 28 days for processing.

    If a certificate is required in 5 working days Expedited Processing Fee applies (fee x2)

    Attention is drawn to: rules 22.2.2 (standard furniture removal) and 21.2 (rig/sail features).  Any declarations should be made on the revalidation form or on a separate sheet/e-mail. 

    If your boat is rated with default sized mainsail widths (MUW, MTW, MHW) we strongly recommend that these are checked and advised at the time of revalidation in the Changes box. See Rule 21.5.4 regarding minimum sizes.

    If you are a new owner, please check the last valid certificate carefully, since you are now responsible for the accuracy of the data and information.  Check particularly specific items like the sail configuration, internal ballast, stored power etc. to ensure the boat is still in the same configuration. 

    Remember that if your last certificate was Endorsed and you wish to retain this, any change to data must be officially measured or weighed; or in the case of sails, verified by the sailmaker.
