The idea of a single credible national club rating system is taking root. This is clearly evidenced by the 85 yachts around South Africa with ORC Club or test certificates. At the time of writing in early March, there are 72 South African yachts with official published ORC Club 2017 certificates. Copies of these or any ORC certificate are available on the sailor services portal on the ORC website.


Another very encouraging sign is that more and more regattas are being scored, or dual scored, on ORC Club.


The Fling Regatta was scored exclusively on ORC Club. The Mykonos Offshore was dual scored, with over half of the monohull fleet scoring on ORC
