Canadian IRC Championships

The IRC Lake Ontario Fleet is partnering with LYRA and the Port Credit Yacht Club to host the 2011 Suunto IRC Canadian Championships. The IRC Canadians will run in conjunction with the LYRA course racing program on July 29-31, 2011 with the IRC North American Championship scheduled two weeks later on August 12-14 at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. The 2010 IRC Canadian Championship attracted a 40-boat fleet – those numbers expected to be exceeded in 2011. All bets are on that this fleet will also participate in the NA's two weeks later. With the addition of a significant number of out-of-region boats planning to get to the north shore of Lake Ontario, it is expected that the NA’sfleet will swell to well over 60 boats!
