Three major offshore sailing organisations have joined in partnership to address the current state of grand prix handicap racing.
To achieve this, a survey is being undertaken which will be distributed throughout the world to owners, sailors, the marine industry and other interested parties. Feedback received will assist in formulating recommendations on what actions should be taken.

The grand prix working party is chaired by Jean-Louis Fabry of France with members Peter Reichelsdorfer and Stan Honey representing US Sailing, David Lyons (AUS) and Stuart Quarrie for the RORC and Paulo Massarini (ITA) and Manolo Ruiz de Elvira (ESP) for the ORC.
Olin Stephens is an advising member. Additionally, each of the three partner organizations can provide a technical consultant. Jim Teeters is the consultant for the US Sailing contingent.
