Registration open for 2018 ORC European Championship


29 November 2017

  Registration for the 2018 ORC European Championship, in Limassol Cyprus is now open and the Notice of Race is officially posted. The Championship shall be the third in a line of three consecutive events, since the Famagusta Nautical Club will organize the 2018 Optimist Mediterranean Championship (21st – 25th August), followed by the 2018 Optimist World Championship (27th August to 6th September) and finally ending with the big event of the ORC European Championship.

After two days of measurement and registration, racing will start on Monday, September 10th with an Offshore Race, with the following four days dedicated to Inshore buoy racing and Saturday 15th September allocated as a Reserve Day and also for the Awards and Closing Ceremony. Three classes will compete, with a maximum of 50 entries in each class, and winners in each class will be awarded 2018 European ORC Champion titles, in addition to Corinthian prizes for all-amateur teams in each class.

There will also be a fourth class competing at the ORC European Championship, and although entries will not be eligible for the 2018 European ORC Champion titles, they will be sailing for the ORC Challenge Perpetual Trophy. This so-called “Class D” will be part of all the festivities of the Europeans and will include yachts that do not fall within the range of CDL limits yet will still need to have either a valid ORCi Certificate OR a valid ORC Club Certificate with potential for future upgrade to ORCi. This Class will be sailing under a different Notice of Race and race area.

We are looking forward to a great event and seeing you all in Limassol in September 2018.
