It's not easy getting approvals these days and opportunities to gain practical experience discharging parachute flares on water from a yacht are rare, but as it has been part of our Winter Series since the early 80’s and practice for ocean safety. The ORCV team has obtained the necessary approvals (Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), Port of Melbourne Corporation, Victorian Water Police, Coast Guard Melbourne) so make sure you have entered to be eligible.
