Equipment List

The gear committee of NorCalORC has delivered the 2014 recommended equipment list for adoption by Organizing Authorities as their minimum equipment requirements for races.  It should be understood that adoption or not is a decision of the Organizers, and it is anticipated and expected that there will be prescriptions to the list such as changing, reducing, or adding to requirements as appropriate for the race.

It is the sincere hope of the folks at NorCal ORC that in the years to come that we can simply use the new US Sailing Equipment Requirements (USSER) for coastal races as our base gear list, and modify it as needed.  The USSER are primarily based on the NorCal ORC list.  Organizing Authorities are, of course, free to specify the list they conclude most appropriate for their race.

To aid an eventual transition to the USSER, and yet have an up to date list for 2014, we revised our gear list to be as close as possible to the USSER without adding any new requirements from the 2013 NorCal ORC gear list.  The differences from the 2013 list are primarily the order of the items and some wording changes.  Items which were scheduled to take effect in 2014 are now part of the list. 

As with 2013 this list is simply the recommended equipment list for adoption by Organizing Authorities as their minimum equipment requirements for races.  It should be understood that adoption or not is a decision of the Organizers, 

Organizing Authorities who want an editable version of this list may contact NorCalORC chair Michael Moradzadeh or Gear Committee chair Andy Newell and we will be happy to send one to you.
