Safety is our focus

The ORCV is very proud of its safety record.  We encourage all skippers and crew to use the knowledge, resources and evidence-based experience of these pages to build a safe boat culture. 

We adopt Australian Sailing safety regulations and policies, adding to them where additional risk management deems it necessary.  We also assess and promote innovations in the sport. 

In the Useful Articles and Links, you will find a large number of incident reports.  It is worth taking the time to review them and reflect on their summaries and lessons learned.  We do this in our Safety and Sea Survival Refresher course. 

If you find interesting safety-related articles, please share them with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Your safety is fundamental to our training, our racing and our culture.
