ORC Annual Meeting in Puerto Vallarta


5 November 2017

  Committee and Congress members of the ORC are meeting now through Wednesday 8 November in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the Annual Meeting, where decisions are made on a wide array of topics, ranging from detailed technical improvements made to the VPP to where to decide future ORC Championship events.

For example, the Promotion and Development Committee met and has a long list of improvements suggested for education and support for new markets for use of the ORC system, and the Offshore Classes and Events Committee has met and approved the site of the 2019 ORC Europeans as being approved for Oxenosund, Sweden, among other decisions.

And among the discussions in the Management Committee is the growth status of the system: the number of certificates worldwide is about the same as 2016, but the number of boats using the system has grown to be very close to 9000 boats in 45 nations, an increase of over 1%.
