Class Handicaps

Handicaps will be posted on this web-site and on the club notice board at the start of the season and after any adjustment.

White Sail Handicaps

The circumstances where a White Sail, No-Spinnaker handicap can be applied are:

At the outset of a race series where the skipper declares to the Sailing Secretary in advance that he will sail the entire series without a spinnaker.

When a White Sail Fleet is planned and announced in advance. Boats electing to sail in this fleet should declare to the OD in advance on the day.

The events where White Sail fleets are planned are

1) Fahan, Rathmullan, Buncrana regattas,

2) Melmore Rally

3) Portsalon Pint and Quart.

In the event that a White Sail fleet is intended but there are not three or more boats taking part, then a boat which has declared White Sails will sail in Club fleet with a No-Spinnaker Handicap.

Boats sailing in the IRC Class without a current IRC certificate for 2021 will have 10% added to their 2020 handicap for all events taking place before 31st May.  

Current year IRC certificates MUST be received by 31st May (IRC Rule 8.12).  Boats will not be eligible to sail in any race without an IRC Certificate.  All race points scored before 31st May will be declared void and the races rescored.  Subsequent production of an IRC certificate will not reinstate the points.

Please note that it will not be possible to race in the Regatta series without a current IRC certificate.
