IRC: Technically, IRC does not officially stand for anything. Originally, “IR” was an abbreviation for International Rule. However, since the Rule at that stage was not recognized under International Rule (sailing), that name was not permitted. So RORC simply decided to keep the initials as the name, and even after IRC received International Rule recognition, the name remained simply IRC.
