Dear fellow sailors.
Over the past few weeks, the launching of keel boats has become far more challenging due to the continually dropping water level on the Vaal dam.
We are now down to 28% and still dropping. The past weekend whilst launching a Hunter for the youth sailors, I noticed that the slipway tapers and goes horizontal for quite a long stretch, making the launching of a Hunter even difficult. I have been informed that the slipway does go angle down again, however in the meantime it becomes impractical to launch keel boats from our slipway at LDYC.
Unfortunately therefore, we will no longer be able to launch keel boats from the LDYC slipway, on the day of any event, or club event, due to the current water levels.  The current launching situation poses difficult challenges, increased risk and creates much agitation to all sailors and staff involved. If you still wish to launch your boats for an event, please make sure it is done at least 1 day prior to the event.
DAC has kindly offered their assistance in allowing LDYC members to relocate their boats and trailers to DAC, where dry-sailing and launching is still relatively easy.  We thank DAC, its members, staff, and Flag officers, for accommodating our members boats' during this time.
Boats which have lifting keels or centreboards and low drafts, can still be launched from LDYC's slipway. I do however implore all sailors who are dry-sailing to please ensure that their trailers are in good functioning order, this includes tyres that are properly inflated, so as to reduce any delays and further frustrations. We all need to share and use the current slipway in difficult times, and ask all to please be patient, accommodating and understanding to everyone's shared need of this slipway; sailors and boaters alike.
If there are any further suggestions or thoughts regarding this matter, please respond to me directly. 

Your Rear Commodore
