As part of introducing an exciting new format, including a new schedule of races and all new divisions for the 2018 Winter Series, the ORCV is committed to talking to as many members and supporters as possible, through a series of information sessions to be held all supporting yacht clubs on Port Phillip.

 Following on from the success we have had at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron, Safety Beach Sailing Club and Hobsons Bay Yacht Club over the last few weeks, our Winter Series Sub-Committee move on to Three additional clubs this week, to hold brief information sessions for the all new format Winter Series.

This Thursday evening, 10th of May, 2018, commencing at 7:30pm, Sandringham Yacht Club has invited our Sub-Committee to present at the conclusion of its Member Information Night with Guest Speaker Lex Bertrand, following his insightful presentation on Local Weather and Sailing on the Bay.

SYC would also like to extend an invitation to all ORCV members, friends and their guests to attend this special presentation, and remind everyone that bookings are not necessary.

On Friday evening, our sub-committee has been offered an opportunity to present information to the attendees at the 2018 Victorian Keelboat Presentation evening at Royal Brighton Yacht Club, commencing at 7:00pm, and once again, all are welcome to attend.

In conjunction with the Port Phillip Women’s Championship Series presentation, this will be an excellent opportunity to showcase the introduction of our Female-based Crew Division, which is an exciting addition to this years new format Winter Series.

This coming Saturday, 12th May, 2018, following Race One of the RYCV Brass Monkey Series, and the RBYC May Fleet Series, ORCV Committee member Matt Fahey, and Immediate Past Commodore Neville Rose, will present to members at Royals and Royal Brighton respectively, to provide all you need to know about our 2018 Winter Series.
