Hermanus Yacht Club

The Hermanus Yacht Club on the Kleinriver lagoon, locally known as Stofvlei, is superbly situated and has an enthusiastic membership taking part in fun or competition sailing almost every weekend during the summer season. Several major regattas are held every year. The Hermanus sailing season starts in September.

Hermanus Yacht Club

Nestled in the lee of the Overberg Mountains, Hermanus Yacht Club's green lawns reach right down to the water's edge. The salt water lagoon provides safe sailing for children and variable wind conditions that can raise the heart-rate of even the most experienced sailors.

The club has a special family ambience, with caravan and camping sites plus wooden cabins providing the perfect weekend getaway and summer holiday venue ... creating quality time together.

The Dinghy fleet consists of Lasers, Sonnets, Dabchicks and Optimists. Children are taught to sail in club owned Optimist Dinghies through a special sailing training programme and as they progress they can be coached to sharpen their racing skills and compete on a club, provincial and national level. In recent years some of our young sailors have participated in the Optimist World Championships.

The Carioca keelboat fleet provides excellent sailing and entertainment for sailors who like to stay dry and perhaps sip a gin and tonic or two whilst at the helm. Racing for both dinghies and keelboats is arranged most weekends in season and throughout holiday periods.



When the sun sets over the lagoon, braai fires are lit and sailing stories regaled in fine company. Adults can relax in the knowledge that children are close by entertaining themselves in and around the Club
House and front lawn.

A few kilometers away, the town of Hermanus provides additional entertainment, with shops, restaurants, craft markets, whale watching (in season) golf, good beaches and excellent hiking trails in the surrounding mountains.
