We would like to welcome the MSA to the IRSA membership and look forward to assisting them and their organisation in promoting and developing the sport of radio sailing.

Twin M and 10R World Championships 2020

The bid for the 2020 Twin World Championships has been awarded to West Kirby, Great Britain.

Both nominations were very strong and had a variety of factors about them. As a result it has taken some time to arrive at a decision.

The IRSA would like to thank the Castiglione del Lago team and the Italian national member for their time and effort with this bid. It is a good sign for our sport and please be encouraged to nominate again in the future.

Revision of the 10R Class Rules

October 2018 revision of the 10R Class Rules has been done based on the DNM for GBR submission for a formal proposal to change J.1 (a) of the class rules to clear up the issue with swing rigs not complying with the class rules unless both (or all) the headsail spars are included in the rig area measurement.
