As this is written the RORC Morgan Cup offshore race has just been won overall by a two-handed crew, and the growth and enthusiasm for shorthanded racing reflect one of the real success stories of a rating rule encouraging a desirable outcome for the sport as a whole.
Most success stories are due to a combination of circumstances and this one has been no exception – difficulty in finding regular crew due to conflicting time demands has been a major factor, too many crew expecting to be paid is another. But on the positive side boats are now available off the shelf that are well suited to the demands of shorthanded sailing, along with a rating system that is specifically tuned to this market under IRC.
