Harbour Entry for Apollo Bay - Updated sounding (taken 11th May) for the pdf harbour at Apollo Bay can be found here (439 KB) . Please note their depth at the time of measurement and remember to take this off the sounding noted.
Apollo Bay Sailing Club BBQ. The Apollo Bay town is buzzing this weekend with the Great Ocean Road Marathon happening as well. The Apollo Bay Sailing Club are running a simple BBQ as a fundraiser for their club where you can enjoy the BBQ and drink and sit back after the race. They have asked for you to bring cash. Please note should it be raining, as their club location has limited undercover space, the BBQ may not run. Your Race Directors will update you at the 30min to finish radio call.
We have asked for who is staying overnight or for a short time. If you don't see your boat name below, please get in contact as the harbour master is working out allocations. For those staying overnight please ensure you complete the pdf marina form (635 KB) found here prior to arrival.

Yes, we are running "a best photo" competition again with the winner being able to select $75 towards a training event or ORCV merchandise. Entries must be to us by 5pm on Sunday 15th May. Don't forget to include your name. We would like to use any photos to build the sport, increase participation, in media releases and talk about your great results of boat finishing posts. If you are posting to social media, please include #orcv too.
Following the Race - Leave at Home Documents - As this is a coastal race, your friends and family can follow our Facebook, Instagram, website and can follow many who have AIS on marine traffic. The Leave at Home and Sked sheets are ready for you here too.
Clean Oceans. As with all ORCV races, we encourage each boat and competitor to reduce the level of single-use plastic on board by using reusable and water bottles, using boat cutlery and plates, refilling onboard and taking food in reusable containers. Apollo Bay has natural beauty and a community that is focused on sustainability.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and what's going to be an amazing Great Ocean Road Sail.
