Stanley race is looking

Stanley race is looking "Peachy", Getting to the start line could be a challenge, 25 to 30knots from the SW
It’s beginning to look a lot like a typical Stanley race. A lot of fine reaching bordering on windward, some slightly flat spots maybe the start and the finish, 10-15kts and maybe some spots to 25, a fantastic run home and not too much in the way of big seas. The predict wind calcs for th [ ... ]

Looking Good for a holiday weekend Maybe on the nose for some! At this early stage the omens are positive for a fantastic long weekend with something for everyone. If you are  a fast windward boat, maybe one tack in a 10-15 SW  and even a touch of WSW, the faster you  are perhaps a little more pressure. If you are slower, possibly some tacking is more likely but compensated by slig [ ... ]

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.
