Unfortunately Birkenhead RS&PC have had to move the event location for the RG65 TT events on 31st July & 1st August due to toxic blue green algae. It is therefore not at the Birkenhead Lake as per the NoR but at the Marine Lake, West Kirby. Full details and entry via the Birkenhead website here
Birkenhead RS & PC have issued the NoR and opened entry for Rounds 1 & 2 of this years limited TT series.
Here is a link to the NoR and other information including the links to enter on their website (no payment required):

Motion 1 at the AGM was a vote on allowing up to 4 rigs for UK Events. This was passed with a vote of 89% in favour and so an Appendix 1 has been published to the RG65 Class Rules for use at UK events. These are available here.
Motion 3 at the AGM was a vote to allow IRSA 65 Class boats to sail at UK RG65 events. This was again passed with 84% in favour and an Appendix 2 to the RG65 Class Rules has been published here to clarify this.
