Junior Sailing

The junior sailing program for 2019 has been put on hold due to poor water quality. Water quality testing was a project that started in January 2019 to address environmental impacts on the Durban harbor silt canal, to try and work with the relevant authorities to create a cleaner environment around the catchment areas flowing into the silt canal. As many members are aware, we recently had load shedding that caused the municipal sewer pumps to shut down and raw sewerage overflowed into the canals and then into the harbor. We are working closely with the relevant authorities to resolve this in an ongoing process.
