DOLPHYN'S OBSERVATION
"We are all from the sea, but we are not all of the sea. Those of us who are, we children of the tides must return to it again and again until the day we don't come back, leaving only that which was touched along the way." - Chasing Mavericks

ARTICLES OF INTEREST

ROWING

Still enjoying the pleasures of superb conditions for rowing, braaing, and swimming as much as possible.

At the same time patiently holding out with tight thumbs to see Zirk Botha finish the massive mission he's set out for himself, very soon now. Regrettably, most likely in the absence of SA friends unable to await his arrival in Rio. Best wishes for a fine finish to you Zirk!

We would also like to offer our sincere condolences to the family, Dan, and friends of Claire Dalton on her recent passing. Our thoughts are with you in this time.

The cruising groups intention is to improve communication and share with fellow sailors who may not be involved or have an interest in the club's racing WhatsApp group. The objective is to grow the active community of sailors at the club and use this as a platform for sharing joint sailing excursions whether it be for an afternoon raft up braai off Longbeach or an overnight crossing to Gordon's Bay. Sailors are encouraged to share your planned sailing trips, experiences and ideas on the group, there will additionally be planned cruise events arranged by club sailing in coming months.
