The Durban Boat and Lifestyle Show 2016



It’s amazing how quickly a year passes – seems like the 2015 Show was only a couple of months ago, but it’s almost Showtime again! This year the Show takes place over the first weekend of the School holidays, from Friday June 24th to Sunday June 26th.


There are some amazing yachts on display this year, with Knysna Yacht Co, Maverick, Jeanneau and Mariner/Tui Marine amongst the early bird exhibitors. Lowrance and MRad will also be there, featuring the latest in gadgets and gizmos. The power side is also very well represented, with Fairlaine, CapCamarat, Yamaha and Suzuki featuring prominently.


The RNYC Sailing Committee wanted to display our new fleet of Pacers, and the Organisers have kindly allowed us the space. Visitors will be able to enter our competition at the Show, and could win a crew spot on the boats in the “Simply Sailing” Regatta, which takes place on the Saturday and Sunday – a great boost for our “Bums on Boats” initiative.


The Club will be a hive of activity during the Show, as per normal. Great atmosphere, great food, and a chance to welcome prospective members, so diarise the dates now!


The Show Organisers, Creative Events, have also afforded Club members a special discount on two adult tickets, but you must present a valid membership card at the ticket office to qualify. Don’t miss out – 24th to 26th June!
