ORCV Safety and Training

SSSC for May, 2011.


There are a number of boats that go to sea with their crew all SSSC qualified souls, which is plainly very smart. You can bolster the number of SSSC qualified souls for your racing this season and next Xmas by doing the ORCV's ultra-famous Safety and Sea Survival Course. Now it is true that all who are planning to spend time on a boat in open water (yes, Cruisers too) will find this course stimulating and enlightening. However, it is not only of interest to sailors, but also helps shore crew to understand the safety requirements of offshore sailing and the search and rescue process in the event of an emergency.



The first positions have already been taken by those on the waiting list and class sizes are limited. So if you would like to participate, then jump right in.

  • Held all day of Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, 2011 at the South Yarra Sports Centre (Melbourne High School) from 0815 to 1715hrs on both days.
  • MUST get a completed and paid for enrollment to the office by May 15!!!!!!!!
