As part of the ongoing improvements being introduced by the national cruiser racer body, ICRA has announced a new basis for the award of the coveted “Boat Of The Year” trophy.
Previously, this trophy was awarded to the boat, who in the opinion of the ICRA committee, performed best.
ICRA technical delegate, Ric Morris commented "we have now introduced a new formula which gives a wider reach and geographically gives boats nationwide a better chance of winning whilst introducing a more transparent basis for this award. Results of various nationwide regattas will be utilised in an overall score for each yacht so the award will be made to the best scoring yacht from a series of regattas"
