March 4, 2021 - Organizers from the Kalev Yacht Club and the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) have announced a change to the Notice of Race that will broaden participation in the 2021 ORC World Championship being held over 6-14 August 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Currently there are 126 entries from 14 countries that are divided into three classes, the largest turnout of entries at an ORC World Championship in five year since the 2016 ORC World Championship at the Royal Danish YC in Skovshoved, Denmark.
Due to this strong interest, organizers for the Tallinn Worlds have chosen to amend the Notice of Race to accommodate all existing and possibly even more entries since there is a capacity limit of 50 boats on each starting line. Currently Class A has 9 entries, Class B has 40 entries, and Class C has 77 entries, and World Championship titles are awarded in each of these three classes.
The NOR change would allow organizers to divide a class that has at least 60 paid entries by 1 June into two groups within the same class. A plan for heat scoring, if needed for a class being raced in two groups, would be published on 15 July.
The limit of 30 boats from one country per each class remains. If there are more then 30 entries from the same country in one class, selection of 30 entries to be accepted should be made by the relevant National Sailing Federation of that country.
