  Class Rating Splits
Posted by Laurence Mead on Wed Jul 21, 12:46 [3884-12594]
Based on entries to date (and they are still coming in fast - 16 yesterday alone!) the provisional class splits for IRC and cruiser classes is as below. We now have 122 IRC entries so a good fleet building. Including the IRC boats which race as one-designs at Cowes Week, it's heading towards 200 IRC rated boats. A great fleet!

Any questions or comments please let us know using this forum.

Best regards,

CW Team
