Winch Recovery Course. 

Date: 22nd & 23rd July 2023

Cost: $350/Vehicle (Registration includes 1 passenger)

Description:   :  A winch recovery course will be held at Tallarook Forest Training Area.  Please see below for details to the event.

A map will be sent to all participants.

A few things to note:

  • Vehicles MUST have a winch and associated recovery gear.
  • We would like you to have a Partner or co driver with you. The idea is that your partner will know what to do if a situation should arise while out in the bush. This person will be deploying winch lines and giving directions as necessary.
  • Vehicles must be well maintained
  • Damage could occur during activities due to the nature of the course.
  • The course is probably aimed at the more experienced but we will be starting with the basics.

Weather:  We have had wet weather and snow in the past, so please bring clothing, footwear and camping gear suitable for the conditions and keep an eye on the weather forecast prior to the weekend. 

Equipment:  Vehicles must have a winch and UHF radio (A radio can be borrowed from the club).  Usual recovery gear needs to be carried. 

Additional Equipment required:  Camping gear, food and water for the weekend.  Clothing for wet and cold conditions.  Morning tea will be in the bush each day – byo thermos, etc. 

Trip Standard:  Hard – some steep, low-range hill climbs and some rocky tracks!.  Possibly harder if wet and slippery. 

Fuel:  A full tank ex Melbourne.  

Duration: 2 days 

Convoy limit: 6 vehicles 

Meeting arrangements:  The course will start at 9.00am on Saturday morning at the Tallarook Training ground.  We will aim to finish about 4.00pm  on Sunday. We will have access from Friday afternoon and we are expecting people to come up and stay Friday night. The camp has toilets and there is hot showers if you need them.
