Every year during Summer, the ORCV conducts regular offshore racing, with the major events being the two Melbourne to Hobart (via both the wow it's great purchase viagra us West and East coasts of Tasmania) and the Melbourne to Launceston yacht races. The latter is Australia's oldest ocean race.

Australia's longest Category One race is the ORCV's 1885nm Melbourne to Vanuatu event. This is held every four years from 2006.

Australia's only Category Zero event is the famed, two-handed, 5500nm Melbourne to Osaka race. It has been held every four years since 1987, with just the one exception. This Sister City event is co-hosted by the Sandringham Yacht Club and the Osaka Hokko Yacht Club. The ORCV manages all the on-water elements.

The table starts with the Melbourne to Stanley event, as this marks our annual return to Bass Strait and beyond.
