With an ORC Certificate you are getting more than
just a rating. ORC Sailor Services allows you access to the ORC
Database of all ORC certificates issued worldwide with the following options:
- Search the database by name of the boat, sail number, class
or design type, as well as the country and year of the issuing
- Get a copy of any certificate issued by an ORC rating office
- this may be any boat of interest: a competitorís boat, a boat
you are considering to buy, or a boat you have heard about but
want to know more. Or this could even be your own boat when you
are looking for an old or current certificate.
- Make a test run on any certificate by using either existing
measurement* data from the certificate, or by changing selected
measurements* listed on the certificate. For example, you can
find out the rating effects of having larger or smaller sails,
changing your crew weight, or changing to an asymmetric from a
symmetric spinnaker. Please note that measurements from the
boatís offset file (hull, keel and rudder) may not be changed
within Sailor Services. For these changes, consult your local
Rating Office or a qualified naval architect.
- Check out the new rating of any boat, since ORC Sailor
Services always uses the latest version of the ORC VPP from the
moment it is available. You can see what your rating will be or
that of your competition's at the beginning of the year even
before certificates are actually issued.
