XX IC World Championships 2017

Pwllheli August 19th-25th

With a turnout of 60 boats, the XX World Championships at the Plas Heli Centre in Pwllheli marked the continued resurgence of the IC class. The class has grown steadily with the latest development designs created since the rules changed in 2009 and starting to reach significant numbers in the UK. The fleet also included a healthy number of AC's, ICOD Nethercott and Slurp designs with a visitituing Taifun fleet from Germany.   

The British results were a great boost for the class in the UK with a new World Champion in Robin Wood with Alistair Warren in the bronze medal position. There was also a British victory in the famous International Canoe Challenge Cup with Gareth Caldwell securing the two wins required to take the trophy previously held by the USA since 2009.

Travellers Trophy

The 2018 Travellers' Series points will be scored separately for ICs and ACs and OD IC's but also with an overall result based on handicap (if they have been calculated) based on UK based Premier events only. A fleet prize will only be awarded if more than three boats each qualify in more than 2 events.

The Premier Events are the nominated UK Open Meetings and the National Championships with secondary events added from the list or where the committee have been informed in advance that more than three in a given fleet are competing.

Secondary Events are included this year to encourage involvement in shared regattas and are presented here where at least 3 boats have registered an interest. Results in Secondary Events will only be included if 3 or more boats are entered and they complete the required number of races to qualify in that event.

Scoring will be based as follows;

Nationals 3 points x (competitors - position - 1)

Premier events 2 points x (competitors - position - 1)

Secondary events 1 point x (competitors - position - 1)

Points will be allocated to a helm and boat. I helm using a different boat in any event will be scored separately.

Competitors is defined as a boat/helm who has successfully completed at least one race at an event.
