The OCC has some of the most experienced blue water sailors in the world among its membership.  To capture some of their valuable expertise, the OCC has initiated a series of white papers based on the collective experience of its members, as shared in various communications channels including the OCC Forum, OCC Facebook Page, Flying Fish journal and OCC Newsletter.  We will continue to publish new papers as topics arise.  If you have an idea for a topic, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
