ORCV Sailing Committee 9 th August, 2017 

2017 ORCV Winter Series- Race 3

This Sunday sees race 3 on the Winter Series and it looks like a vintage Melbourne Winter sailing day. For the north Bay, both the BOM and PredictWind are both forecasting 10-15 knot north westerly winds around start time ( see wind maps below for 1000hrs. ) gradually lightening later in the day. With a temperature of 16C, the only negative is the 80% chance of some showers which will lilkely have some associated gusts.

 

 

 

Race management plans to run two short races for the racers and one longer race for the cruisers,.

Have great day’s sailing!

2017 ORCV Winter Series Race 2

The weather for Sunday is being driven by the trailing edge of a slow moving high pressure system with an approaching cold front to the west, producing a fresh northely flow all day.

 

 

Meyeye is showing 20-25 knots in the north end of the Bay with stronger breezes further south.  The PredictWind forecast is similar although slightly lower wind strenths. 16C and a low chance of rain so Sunday should be a great day for Winter sailing.

Race management plans to run a single race, keeping the fleet in the northern areas where the breezes will be lighter and the seas flatter. Have a great day on the Bay!

 

 

THE ORCV IS MOVING!

Later this year, the Victorian offices of Australian Sailing will be moving from its current Sandringham location to the new State Sailing Centre on Albert Park Lake. Previously, the Boatshed facility, which has previously focused on introductory sail training activities, is undergoing significant building renovations to provide enhanced office and training facilities so to be able to accommodate the local Australian Sailing team.
The ORCV will also move its office activities and staff into the new State Sailing Centre. There are some significant benefits to the ORCV;

  •  More central location for all our members.
  •  Access to improved training facilities and better parking
  • Closer liaison with the Australia Sailing team
  •  A safer and more comfortable environment for our staff


Our currently owned offices in the Docklands Cotton Mills in Footscray will be retained and subsequently leased so the move will also be financially positive for the ORCV.
