Boats with valid ORR certificates will be dual-scored in this Great Lakes Race.
The Mills Trophy Race is a test of navigational skill as the race starts in the late afternoon and sailing continues through the evening and into the night. “The Mills Trophy Race is a perfect fit for ORR boats,” stated Bjorn Johnson, Executive Director of the Offshore Racing Association (ORA). “This type of distance race can use one of the many available Offshore Racing Rule wind mix combinations to get accurate finish results.” According to Jim Teeters, Technical Director of the ORA, “The race committee for the Mills Trophy Race are cutting-edge with their foresight in using the Offshore Racing Rule for dual-scoring, proving themselves as leaders in the United States sailing measurement rules.”

ABOUT ORA and ORR
The Offshore Racing Association (ORA) owns and administers the Offshore Racing Rule (ORR). ORR is intended to be a non-type forming measurement rule that fairly rates properly designed and prepared boats equipped for offshore racing. ORR has the ability to rate Grand Prix Racers against the Racer Cruiser or Cruiser. The VPP technology is the best available worldwide, continually improving as it incorporates systematic research and scientific methods in predicting relative time allowances between boats of different sizes, types and ages to achieve the fairest possible ratings.
