It was great to see members and supporters of the ORCV brave the cold weather to attend the Helly Hansen VIP night on Monday evening.

Alex and Matt were on hand to showcase the latest range of Sailing Gear from Helly Hansen that will be available in stores from October and audience members were offered a 30% discount on the evening! So , we will wait and see who has the newest gear in the next instalment of the HH Media Competition during Winter Series racing this Sunday 25th August 2013!

Ray Shaw presented the latest changes to the YA special Regulations for Hull Construction standards and Stability requirements for Cat 1 and 2 racing. Remember you can no longer use your IRC SSS Base value to comply, so make some early preparations if you need organise your proof of Stability before the first offshore race of the season to Portland in November.

Marissa Chalkley presented information related to the National Equipment Auditors Scheme that has been established by YA. All ORCV Safety Auditors will be accredited under this scheme on completion of attending the training course. One course has successfully been conducted at SYC earlier this year.
Paul Buchholz spoke of the new changes to the Special Regulations for racing and highlighted areas of concern that Auditors will be looking to inspect at your next audit. So make sure you are familiar with the Audit forms and book your inspection early.
