ⓘ ORMA 60

ORMA 60 is a class of sailing trimarans administered by the Ocean Racing Multihull Association that created in 1996 by the International Sailing Federation within the sport of sailing. The boats were built to a box rule that permitted 60 feet length and beam and a 100-foot mast.

The class was active from 1996 to 2007. Boats built to class rules was one of the fastest ocean-going sailing ships ever built, but suffered many misfortunes at sea, including a rollover. In one famous race, the 2002 route du rhum, only 3 of the 18 that started managed to complete the race. This eventually led to the abandonment of the class sponsors. As a result, it is no longer actively managed by ISAF. One design Mod70 was created to continue the legacy of the great blue water racing catamarans in addressing issues that arose with the ORMA 60 designs.

A few ORMA 60 boats continue to compete in the handicap. The first to finish the winner of the 2017 TransPac race was the ORMA 60 class boat is not mighty merloe, which set a new record for 4 days 7:03:30, beating the previous record by almost a full day.

Several high-profile yacht races are hosting these classes, such as the route du rhum, the Transat Jacques Vabre, the Quebec-Saint Malo and solo transatlantic race.
