"Hybrid" - a division of Raceboard 2006 onwards
Posted On: 09/01/2006 18:15:56
The last AGM of the International Raceboard Class elected to include "hybrid" raceboards as a division of the class.
Hybrids are defined as raceboards having a maximum length of 320 cm. In all other respects the standard class rules apply - the other key points relating to a board dimensions: minimum length 270cm, and maximum width 100.5cm.
Equipment Rules relating to weight, fin, centreboard, sail and rig components, and limitations, are unchanged (link to Class Rules )
Additionally, at the 2006 Raceboard Youth World Championships competitors will be limited to registering hybrid boards.
At all other Class Championhips hybrid will be a prize category with "class titles" . . . unless otherwise stated.

When the class rules were revised for competition from 2005 onwards, not only were the board rules relaxed to permit the use of the new generation of 'hybrid' raceboards such as those developed for the Olympic Equipment evaluation, but also the sail rules were changed.

Raceboard Class - Revised Logo and Revised Rules
Posted On: 21/12/2004 22:48:11
The International Raceboard Class (IRC) is undergoing a transformation - the introduction of revised Class Rules in the New Year and with it a new logo. Modern "hybrid" raceboards and increased maximum sail size (9.5 men, 8.5 women) will ensure that the IRC enters a period of expansion and further development. Already 3 of the hybrid models tested at the Olympic Evaluation Trials are in production; and of course the new Olympic equipment, Neil Pryde RS:X is class legal. It is anticipated that other brands and models will follow suit. World and Continental Championships are planned for 2005 - and details being finalised now, for confirmation in January.
Also coming on line in the new year - a new look website.
Merry Christmas to past, present - and future - Raceboarders.
Roll on the New Year!
