1) the deadline for IRC certificates is 1700 Tuesday 6th August (this is the latest date we must issue the certificate). Please get your application in as soon as possible, and if you apply after tomorrow (Tuesday) make sure you request Expedited processing.
2) if you are also racing in the Royal Ocean Racing Club's Rolex Fastnet Race and will be changing from an offshore to inshore configuration or making other changes for Cowes Week:
-- apply for your amendment *now* but make sure you tell us in the additional notes section that it is for Cowes Week and that you are also doing the Fastnet.
-- we will not issue your Cowes Week amendment until 5th / 6th August, ie. after the Fastnet has started, so don't panic if you don't receive it this week!
