It feels like the other day that we have celebrated the end of 2016 and here we are starting to prepare the year end function for 2017.   

After numerous visits by club members to different venues, we have decided on Theewater Sports Club (TSC).  This venue is just an hour and a half’s drive from Cape Town and we wish to get as many members possible to attend and celebrate another successful year of our club.  As in the past, this event will also be partially sponsored by the club.

Theewater Sports Club (TSC) is situated on a peninsula stretching into the Theewaterskloof dam.  It is surrounded by farmlands, majestic mountains and a variety of wildlife.

A little bit of info about TSC:

Theewaterskloof dam is the 7th largest dam in South Africa and covers an area of 5 100ha with a capacity of 483 million cubic meters, when full.

The Club is founded in 1979 and from humble beginnings, has grown to one of the largest water sports clubs in the Western Cape.  The unique location of the Club, the excellent sailing conditions, good infrastructure and the picturesque setting has made TSC one of the most popular water sports venues in South Africa.
