The NEW RC900 CLASS!!Following the successful introduction of the RC1000 Class, this year we will be running the RC900 Class for smaller boats with an IRC rating of between 0.96 – 0.88. This will include boats such as Laser 28s, Impalas, Sonatas, Hunter 707s, J24s, J80s etc. If you don’t currently have an IRC Certificate we can help with that through the Rating Officer’s Advocacy Scheme which will give you a reduction of 15% of the normal fees. We will be holding a meeting to discuss this on Saturday 28th January at 1400 at the Royal Western Yacht Club where we can explain more fully the proposals and answer any questions. Please register your interest by contacting Chris Arscott at admin@rwyc.org ... See MoreSee Less
