2015 is here

For most of us, it's back to work. New challenges waiting for us. We wish all of our clients the best for this 2015, and another great year of working together.

For those that is still on holiday, come and have a nice cold beverage, just before it's back to work for you as well.

*Christmas 2014*

I still can't believe that 2014 is almost over. We still had so much planned for this year and now all we can do is pass it over to 2015. Hopefully get it done then. 

We at YPSA would just like to wish all our Clients a Merry and Save Christmas. We look forward in seeing all of you again in 2015. Travel safe.

November news and tips

NEOS

What a beauty. Looking at her makes one day dream. She came to visit us at YPSA for some TLC. High pressure clean, antifouling and she is as good as new. One of these days I am going to pack myself away in one of the cabins and travel the world.

TIP OF THE MONTH : 

Bilge Pumps

Most modern yachts have electric bilge pumps. Whilst they are a great convenience they do have limitations.

 They are usually fairly low volume and most are not able to remove enough water fast enough to keep a holed vessel afloat.

They can burn out easily if left running when there is no water to pump.

But the main limitation of them is that, on boats where they have been fitted they become the only means that is ever used to remove water form the bilge.

As a result there is no certainty that the manual pumps will work when required.

If you have several pumps on board, it is good practice to use all of them regularly and to rotate the pump that is used to remove any excess bilge water.

SV Schuessel

Being in this type of industry can be very challenging at times. For us, the best part is meeting all kinds of people from around the world. 

SV Schuessel arrived at YPSA with Christine and Herbert on board this beautiful boat. All the way from New Zealand and on their way to St Helena Island. YPSA will be their home for a while.  Makes me wonder if there is space for one more!

16 Days of Activism: Wear Your White Ribbon!

Held every year from 25 November to 10 December, 16 Days of Activism is an international campaign that raises awareness about violence against women and children. 

Yachtport SA is proud to be apart of this with our local Municipality as well as Langebaan Country Estate, TNPA and Fruitcorp. 

What is the International 16 Days of Activism Campaign?

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence campaign is a United Nations incentive. The event takes place annually between 25 November (International Day of No Violence against Women) and 10 December (International Human Rights Day).

The South African Government upholds the campaign but also includes issues relating to violence against children; therefore, South Africa holds the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign annually.

This campaign focuses primarily on generating an increased awareness of the negative impact of violence on women and children.
