IRC Single Event Rating

Race in our event with a Spinlock IRC Single Event Rating.

As in 2015, the 2016 IRC Double Handed National Championships will accept Single Event Ratings (SERs) issued by the RORC Rating Office.  This is good news for those who normally race with ‘Club Ratings’ as it gives them the option of participating at a reduced cost. 

The SER is aimed at occasional IRC racers who only want to do one or two IRC events this year. Please look at the Rating Office website to see whether it fits in with your racing plans: www.rorcrating.com/ser.

Further Information
A ‘Single Event Rating’ (SER) is an IRC rating (TCC) issued by the IRC Rating Authority for use by a GBR boat for one race or regatta (or part of) comprising races run over not more than 9 consecutive days including any lay days. 

The IRC Rating Authority will supply the Organising Authority with data for each boat holding a valid Single Event Rating for the regatta. The Royal Southampton Yacht Club (RSYC) in conjunction with RORC, as the Organising Authority, will not use the information in this for scoring any boat in any races other than those of the 2016 IRC Double Handed National Championships.

An IRC certificate will not be issued. Boats will be issued with a datasheet showing the data used for calculation of the rating approximately 21 days before the relevant event. Copies of this datasheet will be available (on payment of a fee) to interested parties under the same conditions as the supply of copy certificates defined by IRC Rule 8.14.

Single Event Ratings will not appear on IRC TCC listings.

A Single Event Rating is equivalent to and fully compatible with the TCC on a valid IRC certificate.

Single Event Ratings are not available to boats holding valid IRC certificates.

Single Event Ratings are not available to boats with LH greater than 22.00m.

Single Event Ratings will not be Endorsed.

Single Event Ratings are available only to GBR boats and are not available to overseas boats competing in British events.

Boats holding Single Event Ratings, whether valid or expired, will not be permitted to run trial IRC TCCs but may submit different data for separate events.

Except with the express permission of the IRC Rating Authority, the validity of a Single Event Rating shall be consecutive days only, including lay days.

A boat may not hold Single Event Ratings for more than two separate events in any certificate year.

A boat applying for a Single Event Rating shall complete and return an IRC application form available from www.rorcrating.com.

Completed application forms shall be submitted through MyIRC or by e-mail to info@rorcrating.com at least 14 days before the first day of validity. Applicants shall state the event and the dates for which the Single Event Rating is to be valid.

The fee for a GBR Single Event Rating will be £1.50 / metre LH + £5.00 per day of validity.

Boats holding Single Event Ratings, whether valid or expired, wishing to upgrade to a full IRC certificate during the course of the same certificate year will receive a discount on the certification fee.

Boats that only held Single Event Rating(s) during the year will be invited to apply for a full IRC certificate in the following year and will receive a discount on the certification fee.

The IRC Rating Authority reserves the right to refuse to issue a Single Event Rating without stating any reason.

The IRC Rating Authority reserves the right to charge full IRC certification fees in cases of abuse of these Conditions for the issue and use of Single Event Ratings.
