Notice

Dear Member, For the past two years  the Committee has  done their utmost  to prevent the eviction of the Club from the premises which it has occupied for all these years but regrettably  we  must advise  that we  now  have to vacate the premises by the 31st January 2019.

The last trading day for the Club will be Sunday 13th January 2019 after which the staff will start packing…

MBYBC Court Case Feedback

  Dear Members. The MBYBC’s request for review was heard in the Western Cape High Court in Cape Town on 2 March 2018. The Commodore attended the hearing and came back feeling positive about our case. Our Advocate presented a good case which was, in our opinion,  well received by the judges. The Judges will now consider all information placed before them before handing down their judgement.

Main Committee Report 2017

The 2016/2017 season has been one of very mixed emotions. High on everyone’s thoughts is obviously the situation with the lease. This is ongoing and is currently in a legal process so not too much can be said but I will expand a bit later in this report.

The sporting sections have been very active with provincial, national and world championships taking place from the club as well as regular pool leagues.

The Season 2016/2017

Dear members and friends of the MBYBC, We have come to the end of the “silly season” in Mossel Bay and we have had a chance to look back at the season to see how it has gone. This season has had the cloud of the lease hanging over it but in spite of this we have had an amazing season. The security and member’s access worked very well this year with the introduction of a private security company to monitor the gates, members were treated to a well-controlled club. The club grounds were kept in really good order by…

Mooring report December2014/January2015

December was the “perfect storm”  Passenger liners During the busiest part of the season we had hundreds of passengers disembarking on the moorings. Air Births We find that more and more Mooring Right Owners are using Air births. This has the effect that we have less births available for rentals. Even if the owner is not using his birth, we cannot place a rental on the birth as the Air birth is there. Dirt Bins Even though we have placed a notice to the effect, people are still throwing bait boxes and pieces of fish in the dustbin. This is…
