Sailing on the Sandpiper 2
For all the sailing addicts out there and all those who love the adventure and fun of sailing the seas!
The ‘Sandpiper 2,’ is an extremely spacious, and comfortable, high performance 39 ft. catamaran sailing out of Port Owen Marina
on the Berg River Estuary.
‘Sandpiper 2’ offer the following cruises, a short Sundowner cruise of approximately 2hours and the Fish& Chips cruise
to Sandy Point Harbour where you will be able to go ashore and buy the very best fish and chips on the West Coast, trips
to anchor at Stompneus or Slippers Bay, where they can fire up a braai foryou aboard the yacht, or otherwise you could just
relax aboard with your own private party and music while they cruise around the bay. You might even get the opportunity to
experience the exhilaration of sailing at 40km per hour, should a brisk Southeaster fly in on the way back to port!
The ‘Sandpiper 2’ is registered for 12 passengers so very nice for a group of friends to enjoy a day out on the water in the
buff (obviously once out of sight) and explore the beauty of the West Coast and abundance of birdlife in this magnificent part of
Costs are R1,500 for members of WCNA and R2,100 for non-members per cruise whether you go by yourself or a group of
12 which then amount to only R125pp for members and R175pp for non-members – now isn’t that a bargain! Where else in
the world can you do this for fewer than 10 euros?
For the shorter Sundowner cruise the cost will be R1,200 for members and R1,800 for non-members. Please bring your own
food and drinks unless otherwise arranged. Please note NO GLASS is allowed on board so make sure your plates, glasses
and utensils are plastic. There is a braai on board and should you want to braai, it can be arranged prior to your trip.
For groups that want to stay over, there is upmarket accommodation for 6 couples at R4k per day total for this facility
( self-catering and works out at about R333 per person ) provided the whole place is taken (Naturist suitable and friendly),
called ‘Herons Rest Velddrif’ and very close to the harbor area.
