Thank you for the support and trusting us to contribute to your mother’s enjoyment of Mother’s Day by bringing your mom to the club on Sunday for a bit of love and attention.
In a meeting held last week between some PWC committee members and the Contractor for the Development, it was confirmed that the construction is on track time wise and that the 18 to 24 month time frame originally given for when the move to the new permanent clubhouse will take place is at this stage a reality.
It also means that the contractor now needs to start working on the area in the vicinity of our current beach access
Launch and Beach access.
We have been spoilt over the past few months by having a relatively direct access to the beach through the gates past the sand pumping station. As of this past weekend, this beach access route will be permanently closed due to the construction of a culvert that will be taking place in this area.
Club members will now have to revert to the “old” beach access along the north harbour breakwater around the sand pumping station. (See attachment for aerial plan)
In anticipation of this development, the club committee has purchased a People Mover trailer and tractor to assist members in getting to the beach. This service will operate on weekends only with a trip taking place every 15 min. On the hour and half hour the mover will go from the club to the beach and on the quarter hour from the beach to the club.
With the construction now moving closer to the club, shortage of beach parking is going to become a problem. In the past, only 4×4 vehicles with a motorised water craft were allowed to access to the beach. This will continue.
4×4 Vehicles with paddle water craft will only be permitted if space and beach operational requirements allow which will be decided by club management and launch control on the day.
What will no longer be permitted are 2 x4 vehicles which parked on the “hard “area before the beach. We just no longer have the room to facilitate these vehicles in the beach area.
A reminder that beach security is only provided on weekends by the club for vehicles left on the beach.
If you launch in the week, bring your vehicle and trailer back to the club and park in the tandem parking provided next to the main gate. Security is present 24/7 at the main gate.

Advanced Warning of Potjie Comp
The club is planning to hold a PWC Inter – discipline potjie comp where each water sport section at the club enters a team into the competition. So there would be teams from the boat fishing, jet ski, surf ski. Fishing ski, diving, waterpolo, etc. The décor theme used could also reflect what discipline your team represents but not necessarily.
We are looking for some prize sponsors to make it really worthwhile for the participants.
So give it some thought and get your fellow members involved by challenging them to enter and try and beat your team
See you at the Club
