2013 ORCV Race Management Training 

The ORCV is continually seeking support for volunteers for race management.

Many people are keen to help but unsure how to get involved. So here is your opportunity to get started!
We will be conducting a Race Management course on Sunday 20th October 2013 incorporating topics relevant to offshore racing- the duration of the race, uncertainty of the weather, additional issues for safety, communications , search and rescue protocols to name a few.
The Fee for registration for this course will be refundable if you participate as a volunteer for any of the ORCV race events in the 2013-14 season. REGISTER NOW.
