ORCV Coastal Sprint Races

ORCV Coastal Sprint Races – New

ORCV Coastal Sprint Races is a new initiative from ORCV Sailing for 2019/20 season in response to skippers asking for more Category 3 races.  They have been designed to provide crew development and a pathway for longer ocean races.  Each ORCV Coastal Sprint race aims to have skippers and crew home Saturday evening.

Being Category 3, there is no requirement to for HF Radio, Satellite phone, storm sails or life rafts (for those under 12m). 

Come try ocean racing or utilise them as a training together with the ORCV Melbourne to Stanley prior to Christmas ocean races of ORCV Melbourne to Hobart or Rolex Sydney to Hobart.

The first ORCV Coastal Sprint is November 23rd 2019.  Entries are now open.
