Development sailing at the HBYC

The club applied for and was granted a fair sum of money from the Lotto,the main use of the funds was to establish a decent sailing platform facility on the development side.

The main club house has no spare space for such training,the back yard did but was a mess,just a dirt and grass surface,that was not going to work.

The entire area was graded and laid with nice cement interlocking bricks,then at one side a back store,center boat storage rack area and training office has been errected.The roof is (was)  being fitted this week. Thanks to the HBYC and Lotto for working together on this great Hout Bay Yacht Club program,its just what the club and the valley need.

Note,the three offshore then local lows, have brought rain to the cape,so all site work has stopped,I would expect the major site works to be finished for the Opening Cruise next Saturday the 22nd,Sail Past of the HBYC fleet is for 1600 hours (4pm) then a welcome gathering at the club house.Why not check out the new boat park while your there?
