ORCV Latest News
New Sailing Administrator.
We are very fortunate to have Tanya Stanford joining Sally Williams in the office. Tanya is a boat owner, Skipper and also, very experienced in administration, so there'll be no wool pulled over her eyes.
Tanya's background is administration/bookkeeping. She worked for the American Bureau of Shipping in Sweden for nearly 10 years, which gave her an insight to boat and shipbuilding in her role as Secretary to the Surveyors in Scandinavia. Of her sailing background, Tanya says, "I grew up on Pittwater, just North of Sydney and was always on and in the water. I sailed from Sydney to Sweden on a 25 footer, which took 3 years." Now that is keen. "We went cruising each Summer through Northern Europe on a Ron Holland 36 footer (old 1 tonner). I suppose the 'claim to fame' is winning the AWKR twice. Once on Tomcat II (Adams 10.6) in 2008, and this year it was on my own boat, Nouannie (Scampi 30). I am looking forward to working with ORCV and being of service to our members. I am also a YA Dinghy and Keelboat Instructor and do a lot of this from RYCV."
Now of course, as she mentioned, we currently know her more from Nouannie and so here's the troops lined up after their great efforts at the recent AWKR.
So welcome aboard Tanya and great to have you, too.
