Today, the Association of ORC class Northwest issued the following press release:
“On March 2 the Bureau of the WFTU took a new Position on the recognition of classes. Under the new Provisions, each class in Russia, there must be an Association class.
Due to the fact that currently the only public organization representing the class of ORC in Russia, is a “class Association of ORC North-West”, the Association temporarily assumes the functions of the managing organization of the class, and
at the same time appeals to all interested persons and organizations with the proposal to create the Russian Association of class.
“The ORC class Association of North-West” was formed in 2018 in St. Petersburg. The aim of the Association is to promote class ORC, development and implementation of the recommendations of the competitions and the organization of the Cup of the ORC.
