Our ongoing ORC Education Seminar Series in collaboration with the New York Yacht Club, Chicago Yacht Club, and US Sailing Offshore Office, has welcomed sailors and experts from around the country to learn more about the intricacies of ORC measurement and scoring.

All three webinars are available on, with the final seminar on the new Weather Routing Scoring scheduled for April 10 (6:30 Central/ 7:30 Eastern), where Stan Honey will join the panel to help explain the intricacies of advanced scoring.

The series has been open to all sailors, and participation in these informative webinars is entirely free of charge. The intention is to create an inclusive platform where participants can gain a deeper understanding of the ORC and its nuances, ultimately providing a forum for meaningful interaction.

We continue to offer these without pre-registration; attendees can join the webinar via the Zoom at 6:30 Central/ 7:30 Eastern at the links below. Furthermore, for the convenience of those unable to attend the live sessions, each webinar will be recorded and made accessible for viewing after its conclusion.
