Class Begins.

 

The ever popular and always sold out ORCV Sea Safety and Survival Course has begun, yet again. The February course was designed to help those on the wait list and where to buy cheap accutane online expert also ensure that Skippers wanting to head to King Island next month, could have the greatest number of SSSC qualified souls onboard.

These pictures were taken by The Brass, as the Saturday February 26 morning session of the whole weekend course began at Melbourne High School's gym and pool. The new, small class size courses have been running since late last year, since being mandated by YA.

ORCV Rear Commodore and YA Offshore Instructor, Neville 'Nifty' Rose presenting to the class. Nifty is also the Chairman of Training Committee. "We're always keen to do whatever we can to assist our members and increase participation levels, so we slotted in a Feb SSSC", said Nifty. Speaking of participation; 26 boats are off to King Island, thus far. The latest entry was Kevin Robinson and No Fearr.

SSSC for February, 2011.

 

There are a number of boats that go to sea with their crew all SSSC qualified souls, which is plainly very smart. You can bolster the number of SSSC qualified souls for your racing this season and next Xmas by doing the new, small group of our famous Sea Safety and Survival Course. With Melbourne to King Island just around the corner (12/3/11), this is also very timely indeed.

The first positions have already been taken by those on the waiting list and the new small group format will obviously fill even faster than the old large class, so if you would like to participate, then jump right in.

  • Held all day of Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27, 2011 at the South Yarra Sports Centre (Melbourne High School)
  • MUST get a completed and paid for enrollment to the office by Feb 18!!!!!!!!

N.B. We ask that you please read and comprehend the course outline and then complete the enrollment form,

 which is linked off the bottom of the said course outline. Click HERE to start.

New Yachting Australia Regulations.


New regs came in to effect on October 29, 2010 regarding EPIRBS, PFDs and PLBs.  Whilst the wearing of PFDs at night is no stranger to us, given Marine Safety Victoria's laws and effective immediately at that, the Brass thought it pertinent to remind shoppers for PLBs this Xmas that the expected battery life of a non-GPS EPIRB/PLB is over five years, by which time the new rules will be in force (from 01/07/2015). Food for thought as you put the plastic down...

At any rate, have a read - they're short - and be advised.


Click HERE to get them, now.
