MAC NOTICE

 

Dear Members

Due to some confusion this last week we clarified some issues with Table Bay Nature Reserve. We have received confirmation from Charline, in writing, that members are allowed to check on their boats & the garden service may operate. We are not allowed to open the restaurant, bar & clubhouse for activities under regulation 3. We are not allowed in the water as yet, & unfortunately the reserve remains closed in this regard for now. We are trying our best to get the reserve opened, which is managed by the City of Cape Town. We have published an open letter to both Mr Wiseman & Dan Plato requesting that our members be allowed to use the water. Please can the members obey the current rules, as we do not wish members to sabotage our efforts in attempting to re-open the water. Please remember to wear your face masks when visiting the club when checking on your boats & equipment.

Kind regards

MANCOM

MAC Management Committee
