However, the fundamentals of financial management and governance are the same. The Finance Committee, reporting to the General Committee …

Members Bar Refurb

The Members’ Bar refurbishment has now been completed with new carpet installed last week. The Billiard table has also been cleaned and re-levelled. I would like to ask all members to respect the dress code applicable to this area and conduct mobile telephone conversations and meetings so they do not disturb other members. Members must accompany their guests at all time whilst in the Members’ Bar.

Around The Bay

Coastal Sprint Dec 3 Tile
Petersville logo type
Ocean Sailing Events
Cock of the Bay Square
This year the Cock of the Bay race will run from Port Melbourne and will finish at Mornington. With already 30 entries into the race, we do expect this year to be a big fleet with interstate crews joining the race before they head off on the 50th Melbourne to Hobart the next day.
The shorter distance will allow those not entered in the Hobart race or joining the Petersville regatta to enjoy a great day out on the water to work off those excesses of Christmas and allow time to stay on at MYC, sail home or to another location (other than BYS) in time for sunset drinks.
ORCV Rip Tour of Port Phillip Heads
Rip Tour Tile 2

“The Rip” is the narrow entrance to Port Phillip, where underwater reefs limit the navigable entrance to just 0.6nm and provides a restricted tidal flow between the ocean and Port Phillip, where over 4,000 commercial vessels transit annually.
Once a year, the ORCV runs an on-water tour from a large ferry looking at the navigation aids, tides, how to and which channels to use, radio protocols etc for a safe transit of the heads.
The tour runs inside the bay but travels around the head's region, and offers not only an educational experience but a great day on the water.
A great Christmas gift, learn more and book here https://www.orcv.org.au/training/rip-tour-of-port-phillip-heads
