Late entries will determine whether or not the ICRA National Championships below class one will break into three classes. 

"Class One picks itself as per the RC35 band, so the only real question is what to do below that", ICRA Technical delegate Ric Morris told Afloat.

Morris was responding to observations made by Afloat about class bands for the championships here.

He says "the split between 0 and 1 isn't really that much of a question as anyone in class one that wants to join class zero for the Coastal racing can do so."

"We're close on numbers to be able to break it into three classes [below Class One], it now just depends on the number of late entries, Morris says.

Royal St. George championship organiser Ian Simington says the fleet is building nicely but this weekend urged 'fence-sitters' to enter now for the June championships that have attracted almost 100 entries for the cruiser-racer title fight.
