Blue Flag 2015-2016

We are proud to once again announce that we were awarded the Blue flag for the 2015-2016 year. 

The Blue Flag works towards sustainable development of beaches and marinas through strict criteria dealing with Water Quality, Environmental Education and Information, Environmental Management, and Safety and Other Services.

The Blue Flag Programme is owned and run by the non-government, non-profit organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

Come and visit Yachtport SA, to see what a Blue flag marina is all about.

Chandlery

We have a few new stock items for all our sailors out there. If we don't have it in stock, we will order in. One to two days delivery time, depending on our suppliers and couriers.

MV Sherilyn

This is the second time she came to visit us. 

We gave her two coats of Anti-fouling, cleaned the propellers and shafts. All sea cocks were removed, serviced and replaced.

Its just a pleasure having her here with us.

See you again next time.

Pre-Departure Checks - Tip for September

It really is worth taking a few extra minutes to check your boat over every time you go sailing.

It’s a great way to get to know your boat and spot any problems while you’re in the safety of the marina berth.

Here’s a basic pre-departure checklist for harbour sailing

  • Do you know how your yacht works, including emergency steering and valve locations?
  • Check the current weather forecast
  • Check engine fluid levels and engine bilge for contamination
  • Check fuel level and glass bowl filter for any contamination
  • Check battery levels and voltages
  • Check bilge pump operation and bilges for fluids
  • Check fresh water levels, filter and pump operation
  • Operate seacocks
  • Check navigation lights and VHF radio
  • Stow loose items
  • Is the LPG bottle turned off?
  • Brief any new crew about using winches, moving around on deck, where safety items are and how to use the head
  • Walk around on deck and check boat hook, anchor, shackles and halyards
  • Start engine and check exhaust water and gear operation before you drop the mooring lines
