Events are central to the success of IRC and continue to thrive, with many events seeing notably close results. As well as the major offshore races using IRC, continental championships continue to grow. Dubai will play host to the 2023 IRC Middle East Championship this December, promising to bring together sailors from the region, offering them a platform to showcase their skills in unique Middle Eastern conditions. The coastal town of Dun Laoghaire, Ireland, is set to host the next IRC European Championship in September 2024. This event will draw sailors from across Europe and beyond, offering challenging competition and the opportunity to experience the beauty of Irish waters. Looking further ahead to the Admiral's Cup in 2025, RORC has already received interest from over 20 countries, underscoring the event's and IRC's international appeal.

This year will be the 50th Anniversary of Mersea Week, where for many years we have run an IRC class. 2024 will be no exception but this year we will also be hosts to the IRC East Coast Championship. Further details will be published in January 2024 but put the week 18th to 23rd August 2024 in your diary. Remember apply for your rating and if you need help then please contact either RORC or
