IRC Solent Region Championship: Summer 2017

Six weekends of close racing with the top Solent clubs in the 2017 IRC Solent Region and SCRA Cruiser Championships. Spanning the full length of the Solent from the Nab Tower race in the East to the Royal Solent Regatta off Yarmouth, this championship aims to encourage larger fleets of IRC-rated yachts and Cruisers in a wide range of competitive racing. Post-race hospitality at each host club provides the opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of each, as well as socialising with your fellow competitors. Further details: www.solentirc.org.uk.

The dates and clubs are:

13th/14th May Royal Southern Yacht Club
17th/18th June Portsmouth Regatta
15th/16th July Royal Solent Tattinger Regatta
19th/20th August Royal Southampton Yacht Club
16th/17th September Royal Air Force Yacht Club
7th/8th October Island Sailing Club

The Championship is open to all IRC boats with a TCC between 0.820 and 1.360, and also to Cruising boats who do not hold an IRC certificate. The Championships will each consist of six weekend events with twelve days of racing and each day may comprise one or more races. A boat’s best four event results, out of the six events will count toward the Solent Series Championship.
