DABCHICK 3438 FOR SALE

DABCHICK 3438 FOR SALE

We’re asking R28k, negotiable, as quite a few nice extras… comprises Steven du Toit fibreglass dabbie hull 3438, mast, boom, side stays, 2x racing Mylar main sails and an additional training Mylar main, 3x jibs, rudder, racing centreboard, vlei centreboard, very nice metal dolley with inflatable tyres, boat cover and rope bag with all control ropes. A very nice boat all round…and if this is too hectic price-wise, then we could sell a few of the extras separately and reduce the price, but obviously it is beneficial for the buyer to just take everything over complete … let me know if anyone is keen, thanks

Great boat for teenagers that is usually sailed one up but can be sailed two up.  It has a strong class in South Africa with approximately 30 boats participating in National Championship events.

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
