ORC Rating System:
We are looking into taking up the ORC Club inshore handicap system as part of our results system.
To decide if this is a way we want to proceed we need RMYS boats to obtain their ORC rating so we can run these results alongside our current rating system AMS and see how it stacks up.
There are several advantages to the ORC rating system in that boats do not need to be weighed, it is cheaper and self-declared.
Current cost is $45 and obtaining your rating is done online.
It is a good option for boats that currently do not have an AMS rating but would like to compete in a rating system results.
So, I am therefore asking if you would consider getting a ORCc rating for your boat and getting involved
