2017 ORCV WINTER SERIES

 

Once again the ORCV Winter Series, the longest running Winter Bay sailing event, is on again so why not come out and join in the fun!

Offering a great variety of windward-leeward, triangle and passage races and together with a cruising division, there is something there to please all sailing tastes.

The first race is at 1030 hours on Sunday July 2nd, and as usual it will be preceded by the chance to let off all those old flares and give crews valuable experience in using these important pieces of safety gear.

The series culminates with the very popular passage race to Geelong (which can be entered separately from the series) with the opportunity to meet fellow sailors and enjoy the Royal Geelong YC hospitality at the after-party. And of course, don't forget that the trip back from Geelong is the ORCV Womens Skippers and Navigators Race which continues to grow in popularity every year.
