Yachting Australia will be hosting an IRC Forum for all current and prospective IRC boat owners and other interested parties at the Royal Perth Yacht Club on Monday 30th May 2011.

The evening will be presented by a panel of guests including Glen Stanaway, Sport Services Manager, Yachting Australia, Chris Kelly, Chairman, Yachting WA Offshore Committee, Ian Ball, Yachting Australia accredited IRC Measurer and Trevor Taylor, WA IRC Owners Representative.

As well as giving an insight into what the IRC rule is and how it is managed, the forum will be owner-focused with the agenda also encompassing a Q&A consultation session. Discussion will also concentrate on the ongoing development of the rule, including why it is continually changing and how the RORC Technical Team approaches these changes.

The Forum commences at 7.15pm. The Forum is free but attendees need to register by logging on to Yachting Australia’s online event registration system at
