All boats are equal in RORC thanks to the IRC rating system. Super yachts don’t often win.

Yes all boats are equal thanks to the IRC rating system. This does not however allow for a poor crew or a poorly maintained yacht. Our key yacht is continuously being updated and improved to find that little extra required to win. Maintenance is ongoing to keep her tip top.
That means we are left without excuses when we race. Its down to the skipper and crew.
RORC events are therefore competitive, exhilaratingly, well organised and popular. Racing fleets attract the professionals and the novices alike.
With the rating system different conditions will favour different boats, as a rule of thumb smaller yachts fair better in lighter conditions whilst bigger boats like a blow. That said last years RORC Fastnet qualifiers brought both surprising and predictable results.
We wont take complete novices when racing offshore, its not your skill level we are worried about just your experience at sea. Try joining us for a training weekend first, get a taste and decide if its for you.
We race as a TEAM. That means total involvement, your not a passenger your essential crew on a yacht race.
