Apollo Bay Race review
What a fantastic race we had in the 2016 Apollo Bay ocean race. With a stiff north westerly breeze the fleet made short work of the exit from the heads, bearing off into a fast broad reach. With boat speeds noted on the AIS up to 20K. Lord Jiminy had a great debut, chasing down Peccadillo who had the advantage of an extra hull. It was exciting to watch as they battled the gusty reaching into the finish.
Well done to all, a special mention to Blaise Pascal and Norma Jeane who ocean raced with us for the first time, we hope you enjoyed the race and will compete again next summer. Results are in, well done to those who achieved a podium position.

Winter isn’t the time to totally give up sailing, come out every second Sunday with the ORCV Winter series, starting the first Sunday in July. Its fun fast sailing, a mixture of passage racing, triangles and windward/leeward. The first race we have permission to set off flares, incl rocket flares, which is great training.
Thanks to our volunteers, Simon Dryden (Race Director) and assistants Ray Shaw, Martin Vaughan, Bruce Reidy and Tracey Reidy.
