MAC Closure of Windsurfing, Skiing & Paddling


Water Use Restrictions – Action Required.

(If you agree with Mancom’s position, detailed below, please sign and distribute the following petition.)

On Thursday last week (14 November 2019), the City of Cape Town (CoCT) instituted a notice, “Recreational Restrictions at Table Bay Nature Reserve, Rietvlei Waterbody”, temporarily prohibiting Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Canoeing, and Water-skiing. Power-boating and sailing were excluded from the prohibition

Despite being in constant contact with the CoCT, regarding water quality at the vlei, the Club’s Management Committee (Mancom) were not consulted about or informed of the prohibition being instituted.

Mancom is in the process of bringing an urgent interdict against the CoCT to reverse the prohibition. The latest available water quality data indicate that the vlei meets all national and international standards for recreational use.

Mancom is taking the stance that unless the CoCT can provide conclusive scientific data to the contrary the vlei should remain open for all recreational activities. The Club is entering its “high” season and this prohibition will be extremely detrimental for the Club.

In support of our efforts we need to collect as many signatures as possible by Thursday coming (21 November 2019) please sign the partition.

Lee is fairly new on the live music front yet ‘exceedingly’ talented, we are in for a treat. He performs covers that will appeal to both the young & old, so bring the teens along as they will love him.

David is equally great and does wonderful Cat Stevens covers. David performs laid back classic covers & a few original numbers. He perform covers from Jim Croce, Bread, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, David Bowie & JJ Cale etc. I must add that he has one of the best song line up I have ever heard. I am looking forward to watching them again etc…It is going to be a very special night.
We will be collecting donations for the musicians, so please bring cash for this purpose.
If Non Members wish to attend this event, please can they contact me by thursday 21st November via my e mail:
