IRC European Championship Update 26/5/21

UPDATE 26-05-2021

We are sad to announce that the constraints imposed on the organizers for the resumption of nautical crewed events from June 9 do not allow the COYCH to welcome and organize the IRC European Championship in the harbor of Hyères on the dates announced from June 22 to 27, 2021.
We are therefore obliged with regret to postpone the organization of the event until Autumn 2021. The precise dates will be communicated to you shortly.


Registration for the 2021 IRC European Championship is open!

The UNCL and the COYCH remain on course in the preparation of the next European IRC Championship in Hyères which will take place from 22 to 27 June. Pre-registration is now available on the COYCH website by clicking on the following link:

The 2021 IRC European Championship is open to all IRC rated boats. It will take place over a minimum of four coastal or tactical races of coefficient 1, and a large coastal race of coefficient 2.

At the end of the week, a Trophy for the leaders of each IRC Class will be awarded, as well as a Special Trophy for the first of the overall ranking which will be crowned European IRC Champion 2021.

Find the complete race programme and registration and the race notice on the COYCH website:

A list of registrants will be updated daily.

The activation of online payments as well as the official documents to be completed will be sent to you by email (or will be downloadable on the site) during the month of May as soon as we have more details on the health conditions or restrictions.

Don’t forget you will need your FFVOILE competition licenses with an active medical certificate as well as your IRC 2021 certificate
