CSA OPENS ORC OFFICE IN ANTIGUA
Friday 22nd July 2016

The Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) and the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) are pleased to announce that the CSA has opened a new ORC Rating Office in Antigua to serve sailors in the Caribbean region. Starting September 1st, 2016, CSA will be authorized to accept measurement data and issue ORC Club and ORC International certificates.
 
The CSA and ORC have been in discussion for several years and the opening of this office in Antigua marks the beginning of what is hoped to be a beneficial collaboration for both organizations.
 
CSA Senior Measurer Bastien Pouthier has been nominated to the role of ORC National Rating Officer. The CSA will continue to measure boats and issue CSA certificates throughout the Caribbean region for the foreseeable future, in addition to issuing ORC certificates.
 
“Partnering with ORC will give us some new and effective tools to help make CSA more efficient at delivering accurate ratings and certificates to our constituents,” said Kathy Lammers, President of CSA. “This will be implemented in a manner that preserves the existing strong relationships we have with our events and customers in the region, with the added resource base ORC has of some 90,000 measurement data records collected over the past 30 years.”
 
Of the relationship with CSA, ORC Chairman Bruno Finzi said: “We are extremely pleased to work closely in cooperation with CSA, and welcome them to our family of 42 other rating offices around the world. CSA has a long and admired history in servicing the needs of their community, and we are very happy to help them continue with this valuable service.”
 
Inquiries about the CSA Rating Rule and the CSA ORC Rating Office can be directed to ORC National Rating Officer for the Caribbean region, Bastien Pouthier at rating@pouthier.eu.
