ORCV Triumphs with Australian Sailing National Sports Promotion Award 2023

In a resounding achievement, the ORCV Media Team has again taken centre stage, clinching state-level accolades and proudly claiming the Australian Sailing 2023 Sports Promotion Award nationally. This prestigious award recognised the ORCV Media Team’s unwavering commitment to promoting sailing, engaging ocean racing communities, and elevating the sport through innovative media and communication initiatives.

A standout achievement from the past year includes breaking the record for the highest number of entries into the 50th Melbourne to Hobart Westcoaster. This accomplishment reflected the growing enthusiasm for ocean racing and underscored the ORCV's pivotal role in fostering a vibrant sailing community.

Our dedicated team of volunteers committed to ocean racing is at the heart of this recognition. Deserving a special acknowledgment are Tim Boucaut and Delma Dunoon for their tireless volunteer efforts, which have played a pivotal role in raising the bar. Their passion for the sport has driven the club's success, and we express our heartfelt gratitude for their unwavering dedication over the last few years.

As we celebrate this momentous achievement, we also look forward to the future and remain committed to championing excellence in sailing, fostering lifetime connections, and inspiring the next generation of sailors. We humbly accepted this award as a recognition of past accomplishments and a call to continue pushing boundaries and setting new standards in ocean racing.
