The RYA YTC powered by the RORC Rating Office national rating system was launched earlier this year, providing cruising yachts and cruiser-racers with a simple, entry-level rating system. The initiative aims to promote participation by encouraging skippers of any skill level to race their boats in club events and local regattas.
The RYA YTC is supported and promoted by the RYA with the administration and technical know-how being provided by the RORC Rating Office.
To help clubs understand the new system, the RYA is running a free webinar on Wednesday 18 January 2023 for sailing secretaries, race officers and others involved in running club racing.
The session will explain how RYA YTC works, how owners can get a rating for their boat and what wording needs to be included in the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions. There will also be an opportunity to question the experts.
