Change in 2014 ORR Rule Book


There has been a change in the 2014 ORR Rule Book that now requires a minimum ISP measurement.  The minimum ISP measurement will be used for the purposes of calculating the minimum rated spinnaker area.

Most boats will see no change in their rating certificate, any certificate issued in the future will reflect this rule change and any boat that is currently affected by this change will receive a new valid certificate.  There is nothing you need to do, it will all happen automatically.

A copy of the latest Rule Book can be found here.


Attention Newport Bermuda Racers

This year the New York Yacht Club is introducing a new division in its Annual Regatta (June 13, 14, and 15) for crews who want to do some relatively relaxed racing under ORR while tuning up for the Newport Bermuda Race. Called the Navigators Division, this new division will race around government marks.  There will be one race per day, each scored separately (with a party each night).  Come race on one day or all three. It’s a good way to warm up your crew the weekend before the Bermuda Race start.
