It shall be the purpose of the Offshore Racing Rule to promote and encourage offshore racing under the ORR Rule, and in so doing, provide a more scientific, researched-based handicapping system, in order to ensure participation by a much broader base of boat owners. The organization will also provide information on the rule and measurement and procedures.

The organization shall, in addition, act as an intermediary to convey Certificate-holders' concerns, ideas and suggestions to the Offshore Racing Association (ORA) and its technical staff for ongoing improvements to the rule.
