ORCV Safety and Training

Class Begins.


The ever popular and always sold out ORCV Sea Safety and Survival Course has begun, yet again. The February course was designed to help those on the wait list and also ensure that Skippers wanting to head to King Island next month, could have the greatest number of SSSC qualified souls onboard.

These pictures were taken by The Brass, as the Saturday February 26 morning session of the whole weekend course began at Melbourne High School's gym and pool. The new, small class size courses have been running since late last year, since being mandated by YA.

ORCV Rear Commodore and YA Offshore Instructor, Neville 'Nifty' Rose presenting to the class. Nifty is also the Chairman of Training Committee. "We're always keen to do whatever we can to assist our members and increase participation levels, so we slotted in a Feb SSSC", said Nifty. Speaking of participation; 26 boats are off to King Island, thus far. The latest entry was Kevin Robinson and No Fearr.


As Nifty presents, former ORCV Commodore, Noel May, does his best 'The Price is Right' model trick and displays the props to the class.


Look out - we may just have to get new pool shots...
