Do you need a Rating?

For all those wishing to enter the IRC, MOCRA or VPRS/Regatta Handicap classes, a valid rating certificate is required. Details of how you can obtain a rating from the respective organisations are detailed below.

PLEASE NOTE: Entrants who do not hold a rating on the day of registration will not be allowed to compete in the event.

IRC Rating
Applications for IRC ratings should be submitted via the RORC Rating Office. For occasional racers in the UK, you can also obtain a Single Event Rating.


VPRS/Regatta Rating
Entrants requiring a VPRS/Regatta Rating can request a free rating directly from VPRS via the following link Request a Rating. Your rating will be sent to us directly from VPRS on completion. If you do not have a VPRS/Regatta Rating you can still complete and submit your entry form by ticking the ‘Rating to be Confirmed’ box in the appropriate section.

MOCRA Rating
To obtain a rating, visit the MOCRA Rating website. The site provides up to date information on the Rating Rule as well as a downloadable application form.

Entry Fees and Berthing

Entry to the regatta is by length, IRC & handicap splits and class starts will be shown after entry.  Fees for this year’s event are shown in the table below. Discounted entry fees are available for entries received on or before 17th April 2016. After this date the standard entry fees will apply.

In addition combined ‘Entry and Berthing packages’ are available and are shown below. Berths will be reserved at Poole Quay Boat Haven, with other berths available at Parkstone Yacht Club and Poole Yacht Club, all at discounted prices. These are allocated on application, as your entry online will give you the option of requesting a berth.  We strongly recommend that you book with your entry, as we cannot guarantee there will be any berthing to spare as the Regatta date approaches.

All Regatta berthing is being administered by the Regatta committee. Racing yachts will be rafted up to increase the number of berths. If demand warrants it, further pontoon berths with facilities will be made available at other locations within the harbour. If at a later date you require extra nights for your yacht, please contact the Regatta Secretary.
