We run three classes of Cruiser racing.

Class 1 is for boats with IRC ratings. This is a very competitive class where some serious racing machines do battle using the RORC rating system to rate each boat.

Class 2 is for the less serious racer and is aimed at the Cruiser / Racer and uses the RYA NHC handicap system.

Class 3 is for those people who want to try racing but do not want the crash bang wallop of the serious racers. This is for white sails only, i.e. No spinnakers. This is aimed at people with boats more in the cruising vein.
