Welcome to The Next Gen Program!

Are you ready to launch into the exhilarating world of ocean racing? The Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV) is here to support and empower youths aged 16-25 with an incredible opportunity.

We’re calling all those aged under 25, mentors and skippers to help us drive youth engagement, design unforgettable experiences filled with learning opportunities and with the prospect of building networks.

The program consists of three pillars:

Introduction to Ocean Racing: Get started with the basics of ocean racing. We’ll take our sailors through the difference between OTB sailing and ocean racing.

Keelboat feel: Creating opportunities to get out on the water feel what it's like to sail on larger and faster boats.

Start-line readyWe want to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to experience this great sport, but also to do it safely and comfortably with the most effective equipment. We’ll be designing gear and training packages to ensure our sailors are can affordably get start-line ready.

But our commitment to you doesn't end there! Throughout the year, we offer work on finding even more ways to stay engaged. The basis of this  program is about finding the next custodians of our club and keeping the sport alive and we’re excited to find the next generation of sailors to help us do that.
