Update to the Racing Instructions

VHF Radio Changes:

The Racing instructions for the season 2017 – 2018 are now available. These apply at the official start of the season in September. However the change to the club VHF Channel applies as from 21st May 2017. OCC Race Control is now on Channel 17. Skippers are reminded that a VHF Licence is a mandatory requirement. If you don’t have one or require one, please contact the RaceOfficer and – depending on the numbers – she’ll try and arrange an in-house course.

Due to the change in safety requirements  skippers are requested to contact the OOD on Channel 17 at the start of the race to both register and record the number of crew on board.
