Double Handed racing is so much fun – give it a go! Its blowing 15-20 knots with a typical Port Philip lumpy sea and the 5 minute gun has just gone off for the start of the annual ORCV Double Handed race. Myself and a mate Graeme Arthur have entered my Sydney 36CR Wild Side. We have done our homework and plotted the course, closely resembling one of my kids slinky toys the course doubles back o [ ... ]


Season Final Club BBQ This Friday Evening, 5th April, 2019. Although Summer is showing signs of fading like an afternoon sea breeze in the Derwent, we have been granted one more week of balmy conditions, to help us soak up the last few rays of Daylight Saving, with the mercury set to rise again into the mid to high 20’s by mid-week. What better way to farewell what has been a great summer of [ ... ]

Port Fairy Race

  Port Fairy Race We haven’t had to do this before but with considerable regret we announce that the 2019 Queenscliff - Port Fairy race will not be run due to insufficient entries. Notwithstanding the legendary hospitality of the Port Fairy Yacht Club, the attraction of Port Fairy as a destination (see article below) and our active canvassing of potential entrants, at the closure of ear [ ... ]

For this you must first know how to safely enter and exit the bay through its very narrow opening -  affectionately called "the Rip".

Melbourne to Port Fairy (M2PF) Off with the Fairies...   The following piece was written John Curnow for The Port Fairy race. At the time, a lot of people commented on how they loved it. Tremendous. If your shore crew are coming this time, then perhaps they might like to read to it. So the dates may all be long gone, but the sentiments are as true as ever.... This is definitely worth  [ ... ]

Arcadia safe and sound

Arcadia safe and sound At approximately 1.45pm on the 10th March 2019 while on the return trip from the King Island race Arcadia with 8 POB hit the Chancellor reef. One crew member was injured on impact but fortunately his injuries weren’t serious. The boat was taking on a small amount of water as a result of the impact so the skipper made the prudent decision to return to Grassy, the nearest [ ... ]


2019 King Island race - Less is More - Results The premier measurement handicap division, being the most populous, is AMS and first place has gone to UNDER CAPRICORN followed by VERTIGO and MAVERICK.  It’s interesting to note that UNDER CAPRICORN was sailing in the new 4+ autohelm category and MAVERICK was a double handed entry which goes to show sometimes less can be more.  A special [ ... ]
