Last weekend, 8-9 April, we’ve met in Hotel Galion in Gdańsk-Górki Zachodnie on Measurement Seminar, for the first time organized in Poland. Measureers from many different corners of the world had the opportunity to know better the ORC formula. Among the participants were Poles and also guests from Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Russia and South Korea.
Meeting started on Friday evening with general presentation about ORC that was open for all sailors, boat owners, race managers. Lecture was led by Dobbs Davis, Chairman of ORC Promotion & Development Committee and gather large audience, including not only people responsible for the measurements, but also a big group of public just interested in this formula.
Main part of seminary started next day and Nicola Sironi and Zoran Grubis, Main Measureers of ORC, did guide through the ORC formula. All participants had two days filled up with both, theory in meeting room and practice – measurements of the yacht in the marina.
We had the opportunity to talk with some of the participants after the seminar. They thanked for the perfect organization of ORC Seminars and great moments we spent together.
– Both, theory and practice, was presented understandable and I hope that we will apply all we’ve learned in practice, during our regattas – said one of the attendees. – I’m sure that ORC will be the most popular system and the regattas will become more atractive.
It was intensive weekend for lecturers and participants, but also great opportunity to meet and share experiences with measureers from other countries. Each of them received at the end certificate of attendace in ORC Measurement Seminary.
