I'll spell it out slooowly
only 4 boats originally entered IRC, there was then the option for fast modern cruising boats to enter IRC passage div which a few did. What I am saying is that they have now created 3 divisions of IRC with ANY boat that has a cert, which total 21, I'm not keeping up, I'm way ahead, Tiger.
Three boats entered IRC Racing, the rest entered IRC Passage. For the life of me I don't understand why they persist with this idea of having "racing" divisions and "passage race only" divisions. If they had a mix of passage races and windward/leewards, the regatta program could be modified to run the w/l's on days when the breeze is not co-operating.
IRC C has a rating spread of 212 points! Race two had an elapsed time spread of two hours - how can that be good (fair) racing!
Why the fark would do W/Ls in the WSs? Can do that in any shitty harbor anytime.
