Pretoria Sailing Club
Events and Membership
We are pleased to be hosting the Charity Regatta from 24th April to 27th April 2021. The Charity Regatta is in support of the National Sea Rescue Institute and is one of PSC’s most prestigious regattas.
Please find the Notice of Regatta, Sailing Instructions and Regatta Entry Form.
Pretoria Sailing Club (PSC) is striving to find ways of making our club more affordable to both existing and new members, with the aim of encouraging more people to be involved, whether they sail dinghies or radio-controlled boats. In today’s world, where the choice of activities is significantly more diversified than it was 20 years ago, people have many options regarding their leisure time. If sailing is to be an activity of choice, it needs to be affordable, particularly in the current challenging economic climate.
PSC is located within the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, and every member automatically becomes a member of the Friends of Rietvlei (FoR) organisation. Membership entitles them to various benefits, such as a number of free entries to the Reserve for themselves and their families. All club members also become members of South African Sailing (SAS), which entitles them to take part in all SAS-sanctioned events, and to be eligible for National and Regional Colours awards. PSC contributes to the running costs of both FoR and SAS, and fees are payable to them.
New members that are inexperienced sailors, will need to undertake a 2-day training course costing R 1,200 per person.

At PSC we have been adding to the fleet of club owned boats that are fun to sail for both single and double handers. We now have a choice of GP14, Dolphins, Lasers and Optimists/O9ers that you can hire.
Our aim has been to develop a suitable fleet of boats for hire giving you the opportunity to enjoy more time on the water and develop your sailing skills while in the process of deciding whether or not to invest in a suitable boat of your own.
