Preliminary Advice.

Australia's oldest ocean race (and the world's fifth oldest), the famous Melbourne to Launceston event starts on December 27, 2012. The winner receives (albeit quite briefly) the splendiferous 60 Guinea, Rudder Cup, as pictured below.

RudderCup

First run in 1907 and then a few years of each decade until the 60's, when it became an annual feature, the M2L is just perfect for the busy crew who have to back in Melbourne on or around New Year's Eve. Crews looking to go and stick their nose in it (Bass Strait, that is) for the first time also use the M2L as a thorough grounding in how to cross The Paddock. This race is resplendant with its own three-race series, as well.

Additionally, it places you directly into some of levitra canadian pharmacy the most stunning scenery in Tasmania and if you're a foodie/wine buff, well the Tamar and areas nearby are just a delight. So grab the gang, the golf clubs and switch off the mobile for a little RnR, Tassie style.

The ORCV welcomes a multihull back to ocean racing in Melbourne

PECCADILLO, owned and skippered by Charles Meredith is competing in the www.osgorica-velenje.si 2014 Melbourne to Devonport ocean yacht race. Charles is also the Commodore of the Multihull Yacht Club of Victoria (MHYC).

The ORCV welcome's multihulls and lowest price of tramadol regularly have multihulls in our longer Bay races, including the Cock of the Bay, Melbourne to Geelong passage race (the last race of the Winter Series) and our new Beyond the Bay Overnight Challenge.

Bob Tanner (previous Office Manager and current National Safety Equipment Auditor) thinks it may have been 20 years since the last multihull competed in an ORCV ocean race. He recalls OCEAN EMU did the 1994 Melbourne to Devonport Race. It certainly pre-dates any electronic records we have, so we'll have to go digging into the paper archives to confirm. If you're aware of any more recent mulithulls competing in ORCV ocean racing events, please let us know.

The Melbourne to Devonport Ocean Yacht Race is a Category 2 event and the Yachting Australia Special Regulations have different safety requirements for multihulls and monohulls.  The ORCV takes safety seriously and compliance with Yachting Australia Special Regulations for multihulls has some unique challenges. The ORCV have collaborated with MHYC regarding safety compliance aspects for multihulls and ORCV National Safety Equipment Auditors have also liaised with some of their interstate colleagues who have experience with multihulls.

2014 SUMMER OCEAN RACING

The 2014 Summer ocean racing with start off as usual on Cup Weekend with a repeat of cialis price online last year’s race to Portland. It was such a success last year with a strong level of participation and a great effort by Portland Yacht Club to really make the fleet very welcome on arrival. It is a qualifying race for the ORCV Christmas races, as well as that other ocean race that starts on Boxing Day somewhere up north! It’s only three months away and will be upon us before you know it so not too early to start thinking about preparing your boat which will include a fresh safety equipment audit of course (Category 2).

Christmas will see the traditional races to good choice online levitra sales Hobart (East and West coast) but this year the shorter Bass Strait race will be to Devonport, hosted by the Mersey Yacht Club on the Mersey River. Tamar Yacht Club has been a great host in recent years and we look forward to returning there in the future but hopefully the www.beyondtheolive.com change in venue will bring some fresh interest into this important race. It is a great opportunity to experience a Bass Strait crossing without having to go all the way to Hobart so is an excellent step up from our coastal races or even the race to King Island. It is a Category 2 race, so certainly not too early to start thinking about what needs to be done to www.vilardevoz.org be ready on time.

Bass Strait Series Wrap and Presentation, including Rudder Cup Helly Hansen Melbourne to Launceston race at Tamar Yacht Club Beauty Point – Sunday 29/12/13

The ORCV Bass Strait Series includes:

  • Boxing Day Dash, Port Phillip Bay – Port Melbourne to Blairgowrie
  • Rudder Cup, now 106 years old, the 5th oldest ocean yacht race trophy in the world, which is awarded to the winner of the Premier Measurement Division (AMS this year) in the Helly Hansen Melbourne to Launceston race
  • Tamar Yacht Club Classic – Tamar River off Beauty Point

The race for the winner of the Rudder Cup came down to the wire.  

After almost 32 hours of racing, only 18 seconds separated 1st and 2nd and only 123 seconds separated 2nd and 3rd.  In a five hour period, SIMPLY FUN, the Line Honours winner and early club house leader, traded places with HUSH and STREETCAR for podium positions every half an hour with each tracker update.  The trackers update positions every 30 minutes and viagra online prices calculate estimated finish times and handicap results based on current Velocity Made Good (VMG).

The 2130 Tracker update on 28/12/13 had AMS standings as STREETCAR 1st with 4nm to go, SIMPLY FUN 2nd finished and HUSH 3rd with 8.7nm to the finish.  Wind at the Low Head finish line was 30 knots from the West which assisted STREETCAR and HUSH to maintain fast beam reaching speeds.  However the tide in the Tamar River, which can be up to 4 knots, was then ebbing (outbound) which would impede them a little.

The next Tracker update, just before STREETCAR finished, had club house leader SIMPLY FUN in 1st place, then STREETCAR 2nd with 0.3nm to finish and HUSH 3rd with 5.3nm to go.  The final results changed again – see below.

Tamar Yacht Club hosted a presentation dinner for crews at their Beauty Point Marina club house after the generic viagra no rx usa TYC Classic race on 29/12/13.

During dinner and before the presentation got underway, Jeremy Walton from STREETCAR thanked the ORCV Race Management Team – Nick McGuigan Race Director and Neville Rose his assistant.

After the main course, which was prepared by TYC volunteers, the presentation got underway.

TYC Commodore, Donelda Niles, welcomed crews and introduced ORCV Commodore Neville Rose.

Neville conveyed that no yacht race can be run without phenomenal assistance of many hard working volunteers.  The ORCV could certainly not run the Rudder Cup Melbourne to Launceston race or the Bass Strait Series without our great friends at Tamar Yacht Club and just try! how to buy viagra for cheap their tireless volunteers, some of whom need special mention.

  • Firstly many thanks to TYC Commodore Donelda Niles, who was serving food and drinks behind the counter this afternoon and even vacuuming the http://theoktravel.com/viagra-medication club house prior to the presentation dinner.
  • Due to the proximity of Fairy Penguins, Parks Tasmania advised us that we were not allowed to park the van in the spot at Low Head used previously.  TYC Committee member Rob Cassidy organised to park the ORCV van in the property of viagra dosage two lovely ladies on the road to Low Head light.  Rob had to dismantle fence move the van through the fence, then re-assemble the fence so as not to let the sheep out.  He then had to do it all again when we were finished. 
  • TYC Principle Race Officer Tom Bain, who camped out at the ORCV Van at Low Head for a day or so, taking finishing radio calls (as Tamar Race Control and at times Ocean Racing Launceston) and recording finish times.  He was also the PRO for the Tamar Classic race.
  • TYC Race officials Jim and Jan Rogers who assisted with running the Tamar Classic.
  • John Scales who assisted on shore berthing yachts at all hours of the day and night.
  • TYC Marina Beauty Point Marina Caretakers – Ron Chandler & David Orpwood and their wives Syliva and Jan. A marina caretaker role may be paid position but these guys don’t do what they do for the remuneration, they went way above and cheapest viagra in uk beyond, manning radios and the pilot boat to guide competitors into a pen – at all hours of the day and night, keeping the buying viagra online safe beer cold.  They made our Race Management Team very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them.
  • And thanks are due to many other TYC volunteers, too numerous to mention, including those who are here tonight preparing meals etc.

Neville also thanked our sponsor Helly Hansen, ORCV Volunteers, including the behind the scenes Incident Management Team members and first time Race Director Nick McGuigan.

Neville then handed over to Race Director Nick McGuigan to announce the trophy winners.

Nick invited TYC Commodore Donelda Niles and Councillor Christina Holmdahl Deputy Mayor, West Tamar Council to present some of the trophies below.

Well the north easterly stayed in for the boats heading to Launceston and click here buy viagra china at 15:14 today Phil Coombs steered his new yacht Simply Fun across the line at Low Head to take Line Honours.  At this point he is also the club house leader on handicap for which The Rudder Cup is presented.

Alan Breidahl made the decision yesterday to withdraw from the West Coast Hobart race and is poised to be second across the line in Launceston during the travelhoo.com next hour.  A few eyebrows were raised during the morning when looking at the tracker to see Gusto so far from the rhumbline.  In fact this correspondent received a phone call from Brian Pattinson saying he was in Devonport and where was everyone?  His way of letting me know that they had steering problems during the night and needed to wait for first light to start fixing it.  Despite this he is now on track for Low head and should be third across the line.

The rest of the fleet had been enjoying 25 knot breezes with the smaller boats Hush and Streetcar putting in a great effort for that Handicap prize.  In the last hour though the winds have dropped out, rather ominously, ahead of the predicted change from the west which we are expecting in the next few hours.  Gale warnings have been issued for most of buy viagra in new york Tasmanian coastal waters.  All the fleets will be affected.
