Are you ready? ORCV Summer Season 2015-16


It is that time of the year when everyone in Melbourne yearns for some warm weather and starts thinking about the spring and summer months ahead.
The ORCV has planning well underway. We will be heading back to  Stanley for the first race of the offshore season and Smithton Lions club are making preparations to host us in the new Harbour shed with festivities, entertainment, food and bar services. They are excited about the ORCV returning to the home of "The Nut” and are looking forward to laying out the welcome mat. The Stanley Race is a qualifier for the Hobart East and West coast races.
For those short on time, the Rudder Cup Race will have yachts heading to Devonport this year. Mersey Yacht Club have announced the “Advantage Pharmacy Top of the Island Race" which along with the ORCV Cock of the Bay Race completes the format of the Bass Strait Series. This is a great event for yachties who stepped up to some of the ORCV coastal races this year to venture a little further into Bass Strait.
Hobart East or Hobart West- which way will you head? The option to take the route outside of Flinders Island and down the east coast or across the strait and down the rugged scenic west coast is yours to choose. Arriving in Hobart amid the gala celebrations for New Year should be on everyone’s bucket list!

So, put these dates into your diary and start planning!
