Val Hodge Trophy – 4 March 2018

The RYCV Val Hodge Trophy keelboat race is coming soon on, Sunday 4 March, so ladies and girls, get your entries in now! Val Hodge was one of the first female members and skippers here at Royals so lets bring home the trophy for her!!

This Lady Skippers’ club race is also the 4th round of the Port Phillip Women’s Championship Series.

To keep updated with the conversations: Follow the Women and Girls in Sailing Facebook page


We are asking your support for a large turnout of boats from Royals to support this race and most importantly, to enable women and girls to have the opportunity to participate in keelboat racing, and particularly as a skipper, for this race.

Ideally we would like as many girls on the boats as possible, however the only rule is that there is a female helm. So if you are a female skipper and wanting to enter the race please do so.  If you are a boat owner and happy to hand the helm over to one of your female crew members please do so, and encourage other female crew that you know to participate on the day. Please look out for posters around the club and the WGIS Facebook page for more information.
