ORC PRODUCES MEASUREMENT VIDEO

As part of its ongoing commitment to support offshore sailing in the US and around the world, ORC has worked with T2P Productions to produce the first in a series of instructional videos on measurement of boats, sails and spars.

These videos provide step-by-step guidance on the techniques of collecting the measurement data outlined in the International Measurement System rules that are needed by rule authorities to produce certificates for ORC and other rating systems as well.

As such these videos provide practical reinforcement of the Universal Measurement System concept that is supported by US Sailing.

“Accurate measurement data provides the fundamental backbone of any science-based handicap rating system,” says Bruno Finzi, Chairman of ORC. “We feel these videos are an important step forward in making the racing public more aware of how this data is collected so they may then have a better understanding of how its use affects their rating, and in turn their racing.”

The first in this series of ORC measurement videos focuses on Sails, and can be found at the following links:

ORC thanks North Sails, Quantum Sails, and UK Sails for their assistance and support in the assembly of this video.

More on Measurement, the ORC rating system, ORC certificates, and events can be found at www.orc.org.
