ORCV Melbourne Double Handed


Light but Tough.


The 24 boat fleet for the 2011 Double Handed Bay Race had light conditions, but "It kept us working all day", as one of the most famous competitors of this style of racing just said to me.

Greg Clinnick from our Love Boat, Audacious, was the first entrant for the event and was rewarded for his earnest appraoch with a Line Honours win and the coveted IRC prize, as well. Perhaps it was that new recruit????? "Good to around the corners correctly", was how Greg 'Hornblower' Clinnick put it before boarding the jet for Kazakhstan.

Little River Band (not that hard to get Ross - "Time for ... .... .......") from our pals at Hobbos. David, they must be happy with this??? Any word?

Serial Double-Hander, Robyn Brooke, from The Secretary combined with another serial Double Hander, Rosie Colahan and they took The Sectretary out for a whirl, whilst the two other parts of the squad were looking after our Japanese delegation...
