The IRC Welsh National Championship Organising Committee invite entries for the 2021 event, to be held at Plas Heli, Pwllheli, North Wales from the 13th - 15th August.

We plan to run both the IRC 1 and 2 class and the popular NHC cruisers class at this years event. The IRC class will race a mixture of windward/leeward, fixed marks and a short coastal race, which will also be a club coastal race, and will hopefully attract a big fleet.

This style of racing is the suggested format from the IRC congress and matches the programme used for the IRC European and World Championship events.

Should Government restrictions and guidance restrict our activities in any way, we can adapt our classes and racetrack styles, switching on or off various components with the minimum of lead time, and allowing us significant leeway, like last year and it's not until mid-July before we need to make any big decisions.

The safety of participants and volunteers working behind the scenes is foremost in our minds of course, but providing that we can run an event that complies with all guidance in place at the time, then we fully intend to do so.

Notice of Race

The Notice of Race is published online and the Sailing Instructions are scheduled to be published by July.

The entry procedure is open for all classes, and camper-van bookings can be made via the Plas Heli website. See Camping booking details.

Any boat owners requiring accommodation locally, or who have any questions or suggestions relating to the planning of the championships, please reply to this newsletter or contact and one of the event team would be delighted to help in anyway.

Social

We have a great social plan arranged, with a hog roast and local live bands on the deck as we come off the water, and this will be tweaked as we get a better idea of how the event will look.?

We all look forward to a great long weekend of racing on Tremadog Bay and to welcoming you all to our sailing club and event centre.
