Sailing results:

Wednesday 15/11/2017: Spring Twilight Series – Race 10/10 and Prizegiving.
We’ve had a great turnout of sailors over the past few weeks. Overall: 1st Jabulani, 2nd Pure Magic and 3rd Firefly.
Saturday 18/11/2017: Round the Cans Series 1 – Race 3 of 4 
We had a good turnout of 9 boats on Saturday. Unfortunately Andrew Mack suffered an injury and Strega had to retire but we’re glad it wasn’t too serous! There was an interesting course adjustment by Blue Tango 2’s navigator but they still managed line honours. The race was won by Billy Leisegang sailing single-handed on Garmin Fiesta.

There is a private function booked for the braai area on Saturday evening but members are welcome to mingle.

Members please be vigilant when allowing your children to play on the play area equipment. Accidents happen so quickly!
Ensure that an adult is supervising the area to watch over the children at all times.


Please take 2 minute showers


Please note that the outside shower at the stairs has been switched off, as the tap has been found to be running on occasion. It has also been noted that members’ guests are using the shower facilities and children are showering between swimming. This is not acceptable with the current water crisis and we plead with members to ensure that water saving continues.

SOP for Hiring of Temporary Contractors:

Dear Members,

In light of the recent serious increase in theft at the club and in compliance with health and safety regulations , all Contractors working on the hard standing and the marinas will be required to wear reflective vests at all times.

All Contractors who are not registered with the club, will have to report to Reception and pay a daily upfront Temporary Contractor’s Fee of R20 per person, per day. No work will commence if this fee is not paid in advance. They are to wear the issued Club Temporary Contractor vest.

Members please note that the club must be informed by email, of all ad-hoc Contractors who are requested by owners to work on their boats. Please include the respective dates when they are required to gain access to the club. Kindly inform your ad-hoc Contractors of this Temporary Contractors fee.

In the instance where an outside Contractor is going to be on site for less than 2 hours to work on your vessel, you may sign that person in. The stipulation is that you have to be present at all times as it will be your responsibility. If we are not notified in advance, the Contractor may be turned away.

We have placed a notice in the Visiting Cruiser’s booklet stating that they are not allowed to bring off-street labour in to work on their boats.

These rules have been put into place to safeguard all Members and Temporary Members, staff and the Club.

Kindly contact Teresa: if you need further information.
