Why sail 2 handed

Why sail 2 handed ?? Ask this question in the bar and you will probably get a light hearted answers like “nobody steals my bunk”. Get people to seriously think about it and there may well be a deeper set of reasons. On a personal level it is challenging and exhilarating. In the bay its just the two of you, working together trying to do the work of many. Tacking, gybing, getting a kite up a [ ... ]

Glorious Port Fairy again turned on the picture perfect weather we have begun to expect of this Easter Weekend race. The small fleet started in moderate winds with fine sailing until near Cape Otway. The wind swung and built to over 20, with some gusts to 30 knots, never extreme and then slowly died away again but still good to keep the fleet moving jauntily to its ultimate destination. It did me [ ... ]

King Island....beautiful one day and simply perfect the next

2018 King Island  Well it's been exciting from the very begining, starting earlier in the week when the Race Director Simon Dryden made the call to move the start time from 2.30am to 1.00am.  Unfortunately with such light conditions in the few hours leading up to the start, a further review of the race start was required, as light winds and current were presenting challenging conditions [ ... ]

Beyond the Bay thank you! from Martin Vaughan

"Huge thanks to many people who volunteered their time to make the BTB overnight challenge a success. To Ray for his Director role and all his support team, to Neville, George and others on the radio, to Sally for the shirts, prizes and organising us all, to all the mentors especially those on the boats, to Hobsons Bay yc for hosting us, Lynda and the team catering and finally to skippers and crew who made the event. If we forgot others thank you too. ORCV is a great yachting community, see you on the water, hopefully for Latitude."

The first of our on-water events has been a great success. The sun shone, the wind gods were kind (if not a little exhausted toward the latter stages of the event) and the moonlit night made for great sailing conditions.

Congratulations to all participants - the feedback on facebook and photos indicate that much fun was had on the water and afterwards at Hobsons Bay Yacht Club.
