East Coast Championship Series announced

'Three Cal 40s and Frolic (USA60217), a Sabre 362, are shown here at the start of Class 1 in the 2010 Newport Bermuda Race. Gone With The Wind (USA12) was over early. Sinn Feinn (USA1818) led the way over Belle Aurore (USA5191) and Frolic. Belle Aurore was 1st in class, Sinn Fein was 2nd and Gone With the Wind was 3rd. Some 170 boats will start from Newport Rhode Island on the 635 mile thrash'    Talbot Wilson - Copyright

The Offshore Racing Rule Owners Association (ORROA) is proud to announce the inaugural season of the East Coast Championship Series. The series consists of five events bringing the best of East Coast racers together to be scored in a single series using the Offshore Racing Rule (ORR). The top three finishers of the series will be given award flags and trophy plates and be eligible for the National Championship ranking.

The East Coast Championship will be based on the results of a minimum of two of the following races, and each yacht must compete in one distance race in order to qualify. Yachts must also hold a valid ORR certificate and register online prior to the start of the race. Registration for the series is free. Registration and Notice of Race are available here. The 2012 East Coast Championship Series includes:

- Block Island Race
- New York Yacht Club 158th Annual Regatta
- Newport Bermuda Race
- Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Anniversary Regatta
- Stamford Vineyard Race

ORROA, in cooperation with the Offshore Racing Association (ORA) developed this series for East Coast sailors interested in racing under the ORR rule. It’s modeled after the successful Great Lakes Championship Series created in 2010.

'After seeing the success of the Great Lakes Championship Series,' states ORA spokesman, John Winder, 'we wanted to develop something for sailors on the East Coast that will serve the dual purpose of increasing regatta participation and giving racers of all types an objective rule to race under.' The organization welcomes sailors and race organizers who are interested in participating under a fair and equitable handicapping system.
