“Having been away from superyacht racing for a while, I was impressed to see the progress that’s been made with both the rating rule and safe racing. The decision to bring in ORC and go with a transparent rule was huge. With what I experienced in our class at the Bucket and heard on the docks, the playing field is far more level. And people now seem to really understand the Appendix SY as evidenced by actions on the racecourse and the dialogue on the safety channel. Like any challenge, it doesn’t happen without the foresight and hard work from different individuals and organizations. I got to see that firsthand at one of the SYRA committee meetings in St Barths prior to the racing. The important issues are being addressed and resolved, which is great news for superyacht racing.”  — Cam Appleton; Tactician, HETAIROS

“… The 2020 changes to the ORCsy regarding accountability of sails Sail Accountability Overview (pdf) is a really big improvement to the rule. I have clients on both ends of the spectrum – some with superyacht racing being a huge focus and others who participate in one regatta a year for fun. These changes are fair and more practical for performance and cruising programs alike. Both the ORC and the SYRA Working Party should be pleased — it’s a great outcome for superyacht owners and captains…” — Mike Toppa; North Sails
