The Hout Bay Yacht Club marina approach

With the annual yacht cruising season fast approaching South Africa, it will be a good idea to post how to enter the Hout Bay Harbour and the HBYC marina.

Looking towards Chapmans Peak from the main quay of the inner harbour of Hout Bay.

The marina is laid out in a letter H , this gives a boat the chance to face the main wind we get which is from the South East and from the Chapmans Peak side of the bay.

The club is a short walk from the marina and along the quay side that the fishing boats use.

The office is run by Anne and Alan, who is both the club manager and also the marina manager.

Main office phone number 021 790-3110  Anne

Marina phone number 021 790-7095         Alan

These phones are both in the same office.

Alan Batley has a cel number also 082-337-2208

The marina and looking South West, the mountain to the left is Chapmans Peak, to the right is The Sentinal.

My thanks for fellow HBYC member and past commodore, Justin for setting up the clubs blog pages and for the availablity of the picture and diagrams.
