Go out “Beyond the Bay” - “Live the dream with confidence”
Ideal for Cruisers and Bay Racers
Have you often thought about what it would be like to sail in Bass Strait, either just around to Westernport for the weekend, or around the many fascinating islands, or to venture further up the east coast to warmer waters in the winter months?
Have you contemplated joining fellow club members who venture out past the heads in various ORCV Ocean Races over the warmer months to Apollo Bay, Port Fairy, King Island and even further to Devonport or Hobart in late December?
Is the only thing holding you back the uncertainty of what you need to know to get your boat and crew ready, or the additional things to consider as a skipper?
The ORCV "Beyond The Bay" program is designed to give you the necessary information and practical skills to help you plan and complete an overnight cruising passage or participate in a race.This includes exiting and returning through Port Phillip Heads, with the assistance of a guiding mentor, from the start of the process, and culminates with two organised sailing events, including the Latitude Race Overnight Navigators Challenge and Latitude Cruising Challenge.
160 people have completed the program so far and several have headed to Queensland as a result or competed in some of our Ocean Races. They enjoyed the program and it gave them a huge amount of confidence.
The program is limited to 60 spots, so book ASAP. To register visit the "Overview & Schedule" page.
More information regarding the full program can be found on the Beyond the Bay Program Overview & Schedule.
