Notice of Race Published for the 2017 Event

The 4th edition of the IRC Double Handed National Championships will take place in the Solent from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th September 2017.  Five races will be held with no discards and provide Great Britain with all round champions of double handed keelboat racing - champions of a series that includes a laid marks course, round the cans racing and a long passage race, the main elements of double handed keelboat racing.

The organisers will again be the Royal Southampton YC and RORC.  To compliment the racing, they will host an informal supper on Friday evening with the event dinner on Saturday evening. Prizegiving will be held immediately after racing on Sunday.  All shore-based activity will be held at the RORC Clubhouse in Cowes.

The entry fee will include an event shirt for both crew members of each boat, berthing at Cowes Yacht Haven for the evenings of Friday and Saturday and tickets to the social events.

Unfortunately the availability of the IRC single event rating, introduced by the RORC Rating Office in 2015, has been withdrawn for this event. All entries, therefore, will be required to have a full IRC certificate.

Entries open on 1st April 2017.
