TEETERS' addition to the US SAILING staff ensures that the Offshore office will continue as the country's responsive, timely offshore sailboat rating organization and the authoritative source for U.S. offshore sailing information. Because of TEETERS' yacht design and rating rule expertise, US SAILING will be able to expand its services to racers, most notably in the area of performance optimization.
US SAILING's Offshore Department is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the offshore racing rating systems active in the USA. These include IRC, IMS, AMERICAP and MORC. The office also administers the sail numbering system, the publication of offshore rules, regulations, time allowance tables, safety reports, the distribution of bulletins relating to rule changes and event schedules plus the sanctioning of ISAF approved Safety at Sea Seminars and training.
