Hello All! To Our Former Crew Members and Supporters!

We want to extend a huge thank you to all of you that were able to attend our event this past weekend. Speaking as a present crew member, it was incredibly touching to see the people to came before me and those who supported our station along the way. Our base would never be what it is now without each and every one of you.

We wanted to share the photos that were taken that day with you. Please click this link to view them. 

We’re grateful to have your support and friendship. 49 Years in Simon’s Town! As Darren explained, some exciting things are coming next year with regards to a base expansion and a new boat and our station’s 50 year anniversary! Be sure to keep in touch!


The draw Friday, 22nd December 2017 is for R4000.00

Remember you have to be there to win.  Draw takes place at 19h00.

Dear Members

We are fast approaching a busy festive season.

There are rules set in place for the good of the club and its members. Here are  a few useful reminders.

1. Treat your fellow members and their guests with care and respect.

2. Adhere to the rules of the club.

  1. Please sign your guests in.
  2. Remember to carry your membership card. The Customer Service staff (security) are learning the names and faces of regular members however we would appreciate members using their cards.
  3. Meet your guests at the front gate and sign them into the guest register.
  4. Adhere to the fishing protocols of our marine protected environment.
  5. Please sign out if you are going onto the water. This includes all groups, sailing, ski-boat & fishermen, kayakers & rowers.
  6. Please keep your vessels certified.  COF, Radio license and skippers tickets.
  7. We have an on-consumption liquor licence which means that you cannot bring your own drinks for consumption on the premises.

Lastly but by no means least:  Please help us to save water. 2 minute showers only. Please do not wash your wetsuits in the inside showers this causes blockages, as a great amount of sand gets into a wetsuit. If you see a faulty tap or shower please report it to the office immediately.

This weekend sees the start of a busy festive season.  Help us to make it a happy fun time for all.
