ORCV Safety and Training


It's all about hiking.


In our third piece from Andrew Verdon, who is the Australian Sailing Team (AIS Squad) fitness coordinator, he is going to provide us with some information on how to prepare your body, hike like never before and then recover from a hard day's sailing.

Andrew would also like to thank Mike Dunstan, Andrew Palfrey and the Rolex Farr 40 World Championships for the photos.
