Race day arrived with 7 boats ready to go; no one really sure what the wind would do. The start was very gentle with little areas of very light wind ? soon the TSA Hobie with Christo and Michiel were doing a horizon job on the rest of the fleet.
The photo below shows that Hobie 14 sailing is alive and well in the Western Cape ? 11 entries and only 6 who sailed in the Langebaan Yacht Club Champs 2 weeks prior! We welcomed Michiel Rust, Danie Baard, Chris Schnehage and on Sunday Grant Ekermans to the fleet from TSC.
This past weekend sailors from around the Western Cape converged on Hermanus Yacht Club for the third Southern Charter Grandslam regatta. With a reported 160 boats entered, space was at a premium on the lawn infront of the Hermanus Clubhouse.
The second round of the TSC Dinghy Club Champs was held this past weekend. Racing started promptly at 14h00 in mild 3 -5 knot airs with Grant on Bridge boat 'Eternity'. We had set 3 yellow marks and pin start, to race a traditional 'sausage, triangle, sausage' course (samoosa in Natal).
Back home from a very enjoyable SAS Youth Nationals at Wriggleswade Dam near Stutterheim. Many TSC sailors through the fleet, although not all sailing under TSC colours. I may have missed some sailing for other clubs. Full results can be found at http://youthnationals.co.za/sas-yn-2015-results/
As usuall, Theewater Sports Club will be a hive of activity this festive season, so come along to the dam and enjoy some fun in the sun! Our staff have been hard at work preparing the Club and its ammenities for the influx of Members, their guests and visitors.
This past weekend the Western Cape dinghy sailing community decended en masse on Theewater Sports Club for the Southern Charter Grandslam 2 regatta. About hundred and fifty boats competed in twenty classes over the two days.
This is now the fourth Synergy we have had at TSC; what an event, what an organization. There is no doubt that the Synergy machine is now well oiled - a slick well organized event.
Theewater Sports Club was the venue for the Working for Water (WfW) 20 Year Director General IMBIZO, Thursday, 29 October 2015.
More than 300 delegates attended this celebration from Departments; Environmental, (DEA), Water Affairs and Sanitation (DWAS) and Cape Nature. The key note address was given by Ms Nosipho Ngcaba, the Director General of DEA.
The first Club dinghy racing regatta took place this past weekend. Ten boats took to the water on Saturday afternoon for two races in a fresh westerly. The bridge was under pressure to ensure that we were all off the water in time for the rugby.
