Racing is proposed within a single fleet, for which there will be overall points and prizes. Depending on entries, divisional results and prizes will also be awarded for the Classic division (RORC rating of 22.0ft or less), IOR 1 (IOR rating of 27.5ft or less) and IOR 2 (rating of 30.5ft or less). Applications will be considered for boats believed to have been genuine One Tonners, but for which there is no proof of an RORC or IOR rating. The Racing Secretary will seek the guidance of the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s (RORC’s) Rating Office whose decision shall be final.
In order to preserve the heritage of the One Tonners, it will be permitted to use the original sail designation and numbers, i.e. KZ (NZL), K (GBR), I (ITA), F (FRA) etc. As another nod to authenticity, bow sprits and prods are not permitted.
