Fireworks for the Winter Series

The ORCV Winter Series will start with a bang on Sunday 28th June 2015 with the traditional Practice Flare shoot.
This is a great opportunity to train and refresh your crew with the procedures of deploying emergency flares- something we hope we never have to do, but something that we must be able to do should the event arise. So check your lockers for out of date items and put them to good use on Sunday morning.
Competition will be hot with many of the fleet coming off successful summer campaigns Offshore and around the Bay and and it is not too late to enter. So put your hat in the ring for the prestigious Lord Wardens’ Perpetual Trophy, awarded to the boat with the best series score in the measurement divisions. ENTER HERE.
