One Design Racing Class Association
With a resurgence in the B25 Class and B25s actively participating in National-level regattas, the B25 Class has decided to join the Ocean Racing Congress, participating under ORC Club certifications and the ORC Sportboat class. After all, the B25 is the original sportboat! There has been a move by a number of regatta organizers to move from PHRF to ORC, as ORC both helps to level the playing field and provide a more 'tailored' rating to each individual boat participating. While by no means perfect (no rating system is), we feel this is a step forward in handicap sailboat racing. There are a number of other benefits to an ORC rating certificate - check them out by downloading the 2016 ORC Guidebook via the link below!
