History:

Durban Ski Boat Club is one of the oldest fishing clubs in the country.

This can be confirmed when you see that we have a number of gentlemen in our 100 Club. This means that their age plus their number of years as a member of DSBC is equal to 100 or over. These are people we are very privileged to still have as members.

We have gone through quite a transition this year and have had to vacate our grand old lady clubhouse.. or perhaps a fishing club should be called a grand old gent clubhouse. We have moved a few 100 metres down the road to join with Durban Undersea Club and share the Point Watersports Clubhouse. This is however a temporary move while the new walkway is built. Once completed we will return back to almost the same spot with a new club built under the walkway that we will continue to share with DUC.

We look forward to everyone embracing the change .. as they say… a change is as good as a holiday.. and the change of scenery is spectacular.. especially as the cruise liners leave the harbour and hoot on their way past.

We have kept all our history, old photos and memorabilia.. these will be put up at our new permanent clubhouse as well as our past commodores photos and Honours boards.

Umhlanga Ski Boat Club Reciprocity Info:

In 2013 the Commodores of Durban and Umhlanga Ski Boat Clubs discussed reciprocity to enable Umhlanga Ski Boat Club members to launch at Durban Ski Boat Club as there are only 10 boats allowed to launch at Umhlanga each day.

The reciprocity agreement is as follows:

  • This will only apply to paid up Angling members of USBC and not to any social memberships.
  • You will need to have your Umhlanga Ski Boat Club loyalty card activated at DSBC during office hours on weekdays only. (We will be in contact to confirm you are a paid up Fishing member of USBC)
  • When launching a boat, you will always be allowed access through the boom gate and will not pay launch fees.
  • If you wish to use the tractor it is R100.00.
  • If no visitor parking is called (most Sundays and Public Holidays) you will be allowed walk in access through to the boom gate but need to park outside if you are not going to launch.
  • USBC members do not get issued PWC (DSBC) loyalty cards.
  • DSBC members do not get issued with white USBC loyalty cards.
