2014 Audi IRC Australian Championships

Background

Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club (NCYC) is excited to have been successful in its bid to host the 2014 Audi IRC Australian Championships.

The Audi IRC Australian Championships will be held from the 16th to the 20th of April 2014. Registrations will occur on the 16th followed by four days of fantastic racing off the white beaches of Newcastle and Stockton Bight.

All IRC rated yachts, small and large, that hold a Category 4 safety certificate are welcome to compete in the event. NCYC anticipates a  Notice of Race and invitations to boat owners will  be issued in July 2013 (details below).

With plenty of activities on the water, in the Club and around Newcastle generally, the 2014 Audi Australian IRC Championships are expected to be an event not to miss! We hope to see you there.
