Miami OCR, the second second stop on the inaugural ISAF Sailing World Cup 2008-2009 circuit, has released the Notice of Race on-line at the newly-launched event web site, www.RolexMiamiOCR.org

Already a long-time ISAF Grade 1 world ranking event as well as a US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics qualifier and preferred winter training regatta for the world's elite Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls, the Rolex Miami OCR also will celebrate its 20th Anniversary when it returns to Coconut Grove, Florida, from January 25-31, 2009.

US Sailing's Rolex Miami OCR is open to the classes chosen for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Competitions.
The equipment used for each event will be chosen at the 2008 ISAF Annual Conference in Madrid, Spain from November 6-16, 2008.

Starting December 1, 2008, competitors and coaches will be required to register online for the Rolex Miami OCR. The deadline for registration is January 19, 2009, and registration at the event will not be available.

While the Rolex event has typically seen some downturn in participation after an Olympic/Paralympic year, Laser Radial Olympic medallist Anna Tunnicliffe believes 2009 will show an impressive turnout. 'This (ISAF circuit) is a good incentive to get people to continue on (with their Olympic and Paralympic campaigns) straight away,' she said, adding that the World Cup schedule would be the foundation for her regatta training as she pursues a repeat berth at the 2012 Olympics.

The 2009 Rolex Miami OCR consists of five days of fleet racing from Monday, January 26 through Friday, January 30, and one day of top-ten medal racing (for Olympic classes only) on Saturday, January 31.
