Durban is blessed with having some of the finest weather in the World, with further acknowledgement of having amongst the best Sailing waters on the Globe. To make the most of these features one needs to be outdoors, and better still, on a boat. It is not a pre-requisite for members to be boat-owners, as many boats require anything from 2 to 10 crew members, and as a result many of our current members fulfil their sporting aspirations as crew.
Point Yacht Club has produced countless Regional Champions, many National Champions, as well as
several Olympians and even World Champions. We are certainly one of the “powerhouse” Yacht Clubs in South Africa, and with our more recent diversification into additional boating disciplines look forward into earning accolades in those areas too.
Enormous experience is available to be learned from our current members –one just needs to ask.
