It has been brought to our attention that the BBYRA name is being used in an email scam. The scam is requesting that members of BBYRA purchase either gift certificates or send a check to a vendor. BBYRA will never solicit payments of this nature at any time.                       Posted 10/01/2019

    ORC and BBYRA operate on different renewal schedules:  ORC is annually on the calendar year and BBYRA is September to August on a seasonal calendar.  There is some misunderstanding on when you need to renew for your ORC certificate for the BBYRA series.  You will need to renew this January 2019 and before the next ORC race scheduled on Saturday, January 12th. 

    ORC makes adjustments to their database on an annual basis and those adjustments are across the board for all boats.  If you are racing with an older certificate, then your numbers are not current with everyone else.  ORC is a great rating system but needs to be current to be fair to all. 

    Note from Dobbs Davis:
    If you have not yet updated your 2017 cert to 2018, the re-validation is $100. If you already have a 2018 there will be no charge to get a 2019 until it needs renewing for the 2019-2020 BBYRA season.

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.
