RORC Clarifies Commodores' Cup Rating Band Rules

London's Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) has moved tonight to clarify details of today's announcement for the 2012 Commodores' Cup at Cowes.

In a statement the club says 'Following the press announcement earlier today re. Advance Notice of the 2012 Commodores' Cup, please find below clarification of the statement concerning rating bands.

In the sentence: 'Three boats can be chosen from this rating band with the proviso that only one boat in the team shall rate 1.150 or above...' 'Shall' should be substituted with 'may'.'

The statement adds:

"It is the intention that teams can choose three boats from the rating band 1.020 to 1.230. It is NOT necessary for them to have a boat rating 1.150 or above as the wording may have suggested".
