Many major races around here use the IRC, in which I see no point. It is expensive, difficult to administer, unresponsive to owners and no more accurate than PHRF, despite doling out ratings to the hundreths place to make people think it is super-precise. (Part of the effort to stop people from questioning their rating.) If you can show how your "new" VPP system is better than IRC, I am ready to be convinced. It would also be nice if required safety gear was available for entrants to rent for the event. We would need a liferaft, for example.
