Subject: Towards a Single Credible National Keelboat Club Rating System


A discussion about keelboat ratings, and more specifically about a single credible national keelboat club rating system for South Africa. We will discuss ORC and IRC, and present a unified South African platform to support credible rating systems, endorsed by both World Sailing and SAS.

We will discuss the free ORC Club offer to South African yachts, and the manner or platform in which we believe this should be supported.

Lastly, we will briefly discuss measurement systems and requirements.
