The ORCV has long been associated with double handed sailing and this race is its entrée into the wonderful world of short handed sailing. As such we’ve created 2 new divisions for this year.

The carnival of short handed racing incorporates Double Handed (Spinnaker and Non Spinnaker) and 4+Autohelm, over a revised Bay course.

Growing in popularity since it's inception a few years back, here's your chance to give 4+ autohelm a try.

This Bay event provides a challenge to those who wish to test themselves in a short handed sailing format, as well as providing valuable training for those who are contemplating participating in the Short Handed Division of longer races conducted by the club.

2021 brings a complete new course to more encompass the short handed way with longer legs!

Ken Read, Vice President of North Sails talks about how much fun he's had with Double Handed Sailing and how it's invigorated his passion for the sport again.
