Mac windsurfing was founded in 1982 and consisted of a open class. Members had to complete a test and if unable to conform were banished to the south lake until they could sail well enough.Today it is the biggest Windsurfing club in South Africa.
It caters for the learner to the professional.The club has training equipment plus a simulator for learning. We supply learner boards plus you can hire equipment from various entity's nearby.It is considered one of the best windsurf places for slalom/formula and freestyle in the world with wind ranging from light to full blown gale force.
The large lawns with fresh tapped water make it a great place to wash off the salt from wave sailing which is about 2 minutes drive from the club at the legendry Sunset and Big Bay resorts where the conditions are great all summer long.Container space can also be rented for those who require their equipment to be housed in a safe environment.
The South African speed record was also set here at 77.7 km/h in 2002. The lake is considered as a very safe place to sail with rescue craft and personnel.
