The Offshore Racing Association is the owner, developer, and manager of the Offshore Racing Rule family of rating rules. It functions as a full-service offshore sailing center with an executive director, a technical director, and a technical team operating nationally. With members throughout the Americas, the ORA works directly with organizing authorities and race committees of sailing events, and helps individual competitors with technical questions, as well.
ORA business policy is set by the Board of Directors. Operations for both the ORR and ORR-Ez rules rely on regional representatives working to facilitate customer user experience with organizing authorities and race committees throughout the Americas. The ORA Technical Advisory Committee, a group of volunteer professionals from across the country, advises the technical team.
