Offshore Racing Congress presentation at St. Maarten Yacht Club
Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) Chairman of the Rating Officers Committee, Zoran Grubisa, and Chairman of Promotion and Development Committee, Dobbs Davis, visited St. Martin in May to hold a training workshop for Caribbean measurers and to qualify the National Authority for Curaçao and Sint Maarten (AHO) as a Rating Office for ORC. This was preceded by a presentation, held at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club (SMYC), to racers, regatta organizers, and other interested parties about the ORC Rating System, the world’s largest open and objective science-based rating system.
In an invited comment, Paul Miller, Heineken Regatta Racing Director and SMYC member, said: “Our interest in ORC is about guaranteeing our future ability to deal with the complex high-performance boats that we increasingly attract.”
