It has come to our attention that certain inflammatory and insulting remarks have recently been circulating on various social media platforms.
These comments have been posted by non-members and are completely untrue and deeply offensive to the Members of the Royal Natal Yacht Club. In keeping with our standing the Club will not engage in any dialogue on any social media platform.
Furthermore, the Club will not permit any reputational damage to the Club or our Members and we are presently considering the various options available including the lodging of a formal complaint against the perpetrators of these unsavoury remarks in terms of Rule 69.
Accordingly members are requested to refrain from entering into any social media dialogue which is likely to further inflame the situation.
