Port Fairy Race & Rally plus West Offshore Product Coastal Sprint 3 Open for Entries

With International and Interstate travel very tricky at the moment, we've heard you in that you just wish to get away and just sail more.  

The ORCV has released two more sailing options for your enjoyment and invite you to join us.

Port Fairy - Race or Rally

Join the race to Port Fairy or come try ocean sailing and be part of the rally. 

For those that race, it's a 135nm, Category 2 race which starts on April 2nd (Good Friday) at 5.30am.   It's often a race of two parts, as you pass by the Great Ocean Road and townships of Apollo Bay and Lorne before turning at Cape Otway for what's often a reach or run to the finish line.

For those who have suitable yachts and would like to try blue water sailing, we invite you to join the rally where you will be chaperoned on the journey and can enjoy a mixture of sailing and motoring (when needed) to balance the conditions and your confidence.

Nestled at the end of the Great Ocean Road, Port Fairy offers a quaint village feel with the safe harbour in the Moyne river right next to the town. Enjoy the hospitality of the Port Fairy Yacht club, with easy access from Melbourne, stay on and have a weekend away.   With good transport options to Melbourne, you can invite family and friends to join you for that great weekend away.

Entries are open here for the race

and for the Rally here (coming soon)

West Offshore Product Coastal Sprint 3

Following on from the first two gorgeous West Offshore Coastal Sprints, we invite you to join us for the third sprint on April 24th.   Our first two races saw roughly 20 boats come and enjoy the daylight start and gorgeous conditions just outside the heads on the short course which had them all home in bed again that night.

Develop your skills, test your boat or just enjoy a day out sailing on the sea. 

Entries are open here
