sail-world.com -- 2013 ORC Rules and VPP have been released

2013 ORC Rules and VPP have been released    
Fri, 25 Jan 2013

Following a process of verifying all the new improvements made by the International Technical Committee (ITC), the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) is pleased to announce its 2013 VPP is ready for use by Rating Offices around the world. Use of the VPP by owners, sailors, sailmakers and other industry members will also be available to run test certificates in ORC International and ORC Club at the Sailor Services feature on the ORC website.

'This year there was a tremendous improvement made in the Residuary Resistance formulation in the VPP, and along with the improvements also made in the aero model the ITC needed to verify that all these changes applied as intended for all boats, and that the programming also worked without problems,' said Bruno Finzi, Chairman of ORC. 'But we are very happy with the work of the ITC, and are confident this will make for better racing throughout this season in ORC regattas around the world.'

The new VPP will also help define new GPH limits used for various events on the ORC calendar, including the 2013 ORCi European Championship in Sandhamn, Sweden in August, and the 2013 ORCi World Championship in Ancona, Italy in June.

The 2013 ORC Rules for IMS, ORC Rating Rules, Championship Event Rules, and the Sportboat and GP Class Rules are also now available at www.orc.org/rules. A Summary of the changes to the rules and the VPP made from 2012 is available here, and a Frequently Asked Questions document about the new VPP and new Rules appears here.
