Pisces Divers clean up False Bay Yacht Club

On Saturday, the 18th of September, Pisces Divers collected 85kg of debris during their underwater clean-up of our marina.

Items collected included a Nedbank credit card, a diving mask, very crusty sunglasses, and the usual plastic, cans, bottles, rope, etc. They also found a 4m 50mm pipe!

All the rubbish was sorted and taken to the Simon's Town recycling centre.

A big 'Thank You' to Pisces Divers!

Great excitement with plans in place to welcome our German tour visitors back to SA in mid-October. Holding thumbs that all things COVID considered allow the smooth running of our rowing adventures, a first for our club on Eastern Cape waters.

A group of CCRC rowers and some spouses will join our Gauteng and Oldenburg Ruderverein friends at Kenton on Sea to kick off the tour, which will continue to Port Alfred, Plettenberg Bay, with the last stop in Knysna before re-grouping in Simon's Town.
Boat maintenance has gained momentum to have our fleet and trailers ready to roll by then. Huge thanks to our maintenance team for your time and dedication to execute Bryne's expert vision of boats in as good as possible knick at all times.

Coaching in and outdoors of our Lawhill Maritime students has taken off despite South Easterly interferences. As a safety deterrent, it has lead to brilliant indoor training on Erg machines with coach Derrick, as well as floor exercises ideal for strength and core training. Welcome to Liz Cotton who's taken over coaching management from Alison, thank you ladies and kind coaches.
Two of our boats, a quad and double had great fun in the chop joining the FBYC fleet on Saturday afternoon to greet Commodore Newman.
We can never count our lucky stars enough to be part of such a superb yacht club and world-class home base.

Thank you from all of us happy hearts at CCRC.
