* Note that this service does not have all the
functions possible through the Rating Office, such as changes to the
offset file or righting moment measurements. It is intended to allow
the user to research simple changes to sails or other parameters,

other services contact the ORC Rating Office.
** It is possible, particularly early in the calendar year, that
there will be multiple VPP releases to include improvements and
fixes made by the ORC programmers. These new releases may imply
changes to the ratings of boats, thus affecting the test
certificates. The VPP version used to generate the test certificate
is listed on the the certificate. The test certificates calculated
using the VPP being replaced will be automatically recalculated by
the system with the new VPP, but you should make sure to download
