Description: The Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2009 ORC VPP (Velocity Performance Prediction) Documentation manual, authored by Andy Claughton of the International Technical Committee (ITC) and amended and edited by other ITC and ORC members.
This 68-page guide provides the offshore sailing community a complete summary of the physics and computational processes that lie behind the calculation of sailing speeds and time allowances for boats measured for the ORC International and ORC Club rating systems.'It has been years in the making,' said Bruno Finzi, Chairman of ORC, 'and designers have always had access to the VPP, but we are happy to at last present this manual to the broader public in this accessible form to help demonstrate the principles and transparency behind our rating systems.
