ORC Sailor Services


With an ORC Certificate you are getting more than just a rating. ORC Sailor Services allows you access to the ORC Database of more than 70.000 certificates issued worldwide in the last 20 years with the following options:

  • Search the database by name of the boat, sail number, class or design type, as well as the country and year of the issuing certificate.
  • Get a copy of any certificate issued by an ORC rating office - this may be any boat of interest: a competitorís boat, a boat you are considering to buy, or a boat you have heard about but want to know more. Or this could even be your own boat when you are looking for an old or current certificate.
  • Make a test run on any certificate by using either existing measurement* data from the certificate, or by changing select measurements* listed on the certificate. For example, you can find out the rating effects of having larger or smaller sails, changing your crew weight, or changing to an asymmetric from a symmetric spinnaker.
  • Check out the new rating of any boat, since ORC Sailor Services always uses the latest version of the ORC VPP from the moment it is available. You can see what your rating will be or that of your competition's at the beginning of the year even before certificates are actually issued.
  • Get a Speed Guide, complete set of polar diagrams showing a boat's performance at different wind speeds and wind angles in all possible sail configurations.
  • Get a Target Speeds, a customized prediction of performance targets for that boat on one of the most common type of courses used in competitive offshore sailing.

* Measurements from the boatís offset file (hull, keel and rudder) may not be changed within Sailor Services. For these changes, consult your local Rating Office or a qualified naval architect.
