West Coast Championship Series

ORR Owners Association (ORROA), in cooperation with the Offshore Racing Association (ORA) and the Offshore Racing Rule (ORR), developed a new regional racing series in 2010. This first series, The Great Lakes Championship Series, was an amazing success and welcomed by sailors in the region.  In 2012 an East Coast Championship Series was created and 2013 is the inaugural year of the West Coast Championship Series.

Races that are included in the Championship Series calendars are not required to run under ORR by race organizers as boats will be re-scored as long as they have a valid ORR certificate. This allows for a much more inclusive format for cruiser-racers to participate in a variety of races across the USA.

2018 Notice of Race – ORR Series Championship

The ORR West Coast Northern Championship Series will be based on the best results of a minimum of two (2) of the races as listed for the Northern Region. The ORR West Coast Southern Championship Series will be based on the best results of a minimum of three (3) races including either the Transpac or Cabo races. The Northern and Southern Series will be scored as separate distinct series, with no crossover scoring of Northern and Southern events.
