Ocean Racing appoints new Manager
The Commodore of the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), Angus Fletcher, has announced the retirement of Robert Tanner as Manager of the ORCV.
Mr Fletcher congratulated Robert on his dedication and expertise in managing the administrative and project affairs of the club. He said Robert had overseen extensive re-organisation and implemented effective and efficient processes during nearly four years in the position.
Mr Fletcher went on to wish Robert every success pursuing his ocean racing and cruising ambitions.
At the same time, Commodore Fletcher announced the appointment of Guy Dwyer as the new manager of the club, taking over from Robert.
"Mr Dwyer has extensive experience in senior management roles in customer oriented service industries," said Mr Fletcher. "He is a seasoned ocean racer, sailing out of the Sandringham Yacht club and he has held positions on yacht club committees and sailing umbrella associations. He will be a great asset to the ORCV," he added.
About the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria
The ORCV is unique in yacht clubs in Australia. It doesn't have a clubhouse, it doesn't have a bar and it doesn't have a marina. Yet it has a membership of 450 of Victoria's best offshore yachtsmen and all the top yachts.
These sailors are members of the ORCV because they are attracted to the challenge of the eight Bass Strait races that the ORCV runs every year, including the often brutal Melbourne to Hobart Westcoaster.
Along with that, next year the ORCV will run the inaugural Melbourne to Vanuatu Ocean Race which has already attracted enormous interest from all over Australia.
To those who regularly take on the best and worst of what Bass Strait and Tasmanian waters have to offer, the ORCV is the authority on offshore yacht racing in Victoria. They highly regard the training courses and seminars that the ORCV have designed to encourage and develop the sport of Ocean Racing in Australia
