There is a large cat currently on the hard that will be bringing in a crane on two occasions in the near future to remove and then replace the mast.

If anyone has mast plans, now is the time to jump in and share costs.

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.
