Who We Are

A non-profit membership organization working as a liaison between sailboat owners and crews, rating rule administrators, US Sailing, yacht clubs, organizing authorities, sailing organizations for offshore and round-the-buoys events.

Our mission is to promote the sport’s enjoyment for boat owners and sailors by improving current rating rules, both in their content and administrative processes and to make provisions for new high performance boats to compete in more events.

With those objectives ORA currently owns and manages the ORR, HPR and ORR-ez handicap rating rules.
