From a press release issued by the UK Offshore Circuit Racing Drivers Association (OCRDA) this afternoon.
At the recent OCRDA AGM members voted overwhelmingly, for the third time, to race independently.
Left with no other viable alternative, having total support of host venues and absolute assurance of cover from Everard Insurance, the committee has taken the decision to action members’ wishes.
OCRDA Chairman Bob McCarthy said;
After 35 years of RYA affiliation, this decision was taken with a heavy heart and not taken lightly.
The OCR season kicks off at the end of April at Torquay with over 40 teams registered as part of The 2017 Aqua Adrenaline Tour alongside Offshore Water Ski Racing and other on water activities, followed by further events at Newhaven, West Bay, Howth and Plymouth.
