US Sailing Offshore Roadshow


General Announcement to US Sailing Members

Join US Sailing’s Offshore team of Jim Teeters, Chris Tutmark, and Sydney Hough as they travel to various locations to meet with sailors and race organizers for the Offshore Road Show! Stops on the Roadshow are an opportunity to have any questions related to offshore sailing and handicapping answered.

Each stop in the roadshow will include an informative Q&A session and continue with short presentations on any of the following topics: Services and Roles of the Offshore Office, Steps to obtain a Measurement Rule Handicap (ORC or ORR), Offshore Boat Measurement 101, Understanding the VPP (Velocity Prediction Programs), How to read a rating certificate, Scoring Methods, and much more.

We plan to create an interactive environment between attendees and the offshore team to foster an exchange of ideas, certification and measurement procedures, and information regarding Offshore Sailing. This will allow us to tailor each meeting to the needs of the sailors and organizations in the area.

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our Offshore Sailing Roadshow Stops!
