ORCV Coastal Championship - Notice of Race

The ORCV Coastal Championship series is designed to cater for the needs of sailors and skippers new to ocean sailing. The intention of the series is to foster interest in the longer events of up to 100 nautical miles or 24 hours duration run in and around Port Phillip.
