    Changes to IRC Rules For 2015

    The following Rule changes come into effect on 1st June 2015 for South East Asia Registered Boats

    • Rule 4.3 is amended to explicitly state that IRC TCCs may not be amended by any third party and that, except in specific circumstances, adjustment of a boat’s elapsed time to effectively amend an IRC TCC is considered to be modification of an IRC TCC by a third party.

    • Rule 21.3.4 (c) relating to the requirement to declare a whisker pole is deleted as redundant.

    • A new IRC definition of Hull Shell is introduced to clarify the meaning for the purposes of IRC

      Age Date.

    • The IRC definition of Age Date is amended to incorporate the new IRC definition of Hull Shell.

    • The IRC definition of Series Date is amended without practical effect to explicitly include ‘one- off’ boats and to clarify that Series Date does not change if a boat is modified..

    • The IRC definitions of heavy weather jib and storm jib are amended to explicitly refer to the appropriate ISAF Offshore Special Regulations to remove any potential for confusion.. 

    • New definition of Headsail Head Point:
      • Headsail Head Point:
      • ERS G.4.2 (b) shall not apply. Headsail Head Point is defined as: The intersection of the luff, extended as necessary, and the line through the highest point of the sail, excluding attachmentsand any luff tape, at 90 degrees to the luff.
