Changes planned for Offshore Racing Rule
Published on March 17th, 2015
Newport, RI (March 17, 2015) – The Offshore Racing Association (ORA), owners of the Offshore Racing Rule (ORR), will begin later this year to process and issue all ORR certificates in-house in order to provide greater efficiency for boat owners and organizing authorities (OA’s). With this move, boat owners will not have to contact and coordinate with four different parties – boat measurers, certificate processors, OA’s, and the ORA.
ORA’s Board of Directors and staff are working hard to create a better and simplified experience for ORR customers. ORA’s Technical Director, Jim Teeters, is working with his team to complete a new and improved rule for 2016, all in an effort to make the best rule better.
ORA reports over 650 plus certificates in circulation, with the rule used in the following 2015 events:
TransPac Race, Newport Bermuda Race, Chicago Mac Race, Pacific Cup, Ensenada Race, ECOS, NYYC Annual Regatta, Rolex Big Boat, Puerto Vallarta Race, Cabo Race, Marion Bermuda Race, Aldo Alessio Race, Corum Cup, Verve Cup, Islands Race, Annapolis to Newport Race, Phyllis Klienmann Swiftsure Regatta, Mexorc, Ocean Race North, Marblehead to Halifax Race, Hamilton Trophy, The Corinthians Yacht Race, Ft. Lauderdale to Charleston Race, Charleston Race Week, Fast 50 Class, and many more.
