Race Director Update 6th March for the 48th ORCV Melbourne to King Island Yacht Race
Race Directors Noel May and Ryan Blackstock set the scene for the 48th ORCV Melbourne to King Island Yacht Race set to start at midnight 6th March 2020. As crew are preparing and due to arrive at the start in Queenscliff, Ryan predicts we may see the first boats sunset and then they balance in by late evening or early hours on Sunday. The King Island Boat Club fire has been tested and yes it's warm and awaits the arrival of the crew, the fridge is stocked with all that wonderful local food including the legendary steaks and the King Island community is ready to greet you all.
It's going to be a tactical race with the winds at the start largely head on and then swinging to the east early to mid morning and moderating.
