ORC uses the International Measurement System (IMS) as the rating platform, ORCi requires audited measurements while ORCc uses self-declared data from the owner. Note that it is in your interest to provide the most accurate data possible – measured data is preferable to data that is owner declared or assumptions from the designer, builder or other source.

Clubs or fleets wanting greater integrity should appoint a Technical Committee under RRS 89.2(c) to confirm owner declared data by completing equipment and measurement checks.

ORC Club Amendments

Once a valid certificate is issued by Australian Sailing, ORC Club certificates will be entered automatically into the ORC Sailor Services database, where copies can be obtained and test certificates can be run for proposed changes in measurement trim. However, if these changes to the boat, its spars, sails or crew are permanent, you must contact the Australian Sailing Rating Office to have your certificate amended.
