It has been brought to our attention that the BBYRA name is being used in an email scam. The scam is requesting that members of BBYRA purchase either gift certificates or send a check to a vendor. BBYRA will never solicit payments of this nature at any time.                       Posted 10/01/2019

Its important to have certificates and ratings within the current calendar year, so US Sailing will renew certificates in the new year when they are available, on or about January 10, 2021. 

The renewal fee for 2021 is $100 payable to US Sailing, and current certificate holders will be contacted with instructions on renewal. Those who need a new certificate can apply at this link:

 ORC makes adjustments to their database on an annual basis and those adjustments are across the board for all boats.  If you are racing with an older certificate, then your numbers are not current with everyone else.  ORC is a great rating system but needs to be current to be fair to all.
