Offshore Racing Congress Canada

Absolute Space is pleased to support Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) Canada, an international body for the sport of competitive sailing and is responsible for the establishment and maintenance of rating and classification standards used to define offshore yacht racing handicap categories.

ORC-Canada wrote – “We would like to announce ORC-Canada’s first industry sponsor – Absolute Space.  Absolute Space offers advanced laser scanning for high definition modelling, documentation and surveying.  One of the requirements for getting an ORC certificate is to have a hull file for the boat.  While ORC maintains an extensive database of hull files, there may be times where there is no hull file or design file available.  In this case, the only solution is to have the hull scanned.”
