Pretoria Sailing Club (PSC) has been in existence for over 50 years and is one of South Africa’s premier inland sailing venues. Indeed it is the largest inland dinghy club in the country and unique in its situation in the beautiful Rietvlei Nature Reserve, the only urban reserve in South Africa. Whether you are interested in racing, which takes place on a weekly basis, leisurely cruising or just watching the wildlife and the scenery from the shore, this is the place for you!
We are situated in the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, south of Pretoria, just off the R21 highway, approximately 10 minutes by car from Centurion and 30 minutes from Sandton and Johannesburg.
Our members enjoy highly competitive racing in a variety of mono-hull sailing boats on the pristine waters of the Rietvlei Dam, or they can game-view and bird-watch while cruising. Racing events are held on Saturday afternoons and all day on Sundays. Picnic and braai facilities are available on our sprawling lawns under shady trees. There is also a swimming pool. The club has two spacious lounges and a galley that provides light meals and refreshments. We have clean cloakrooms and ample ablution facilities equipped with hot and cold showers. The venue may be hired by members for private functions under certain terms and conditions.
In conjunction with Croc’s Sailing Centre (a South African Sailing Academy training centre) PSC offers the ISAF Learn to Sail Programme. See www.crocssailingcentre.co.za .

and, for many years, has also been a proud supporter of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI).
