It’s that time to start getting memberships and Boat Rego’s renewed for the 2021/2022 season.
Looking into “Crystal ball” and being positive, I can see (hope) restrictions will be substantially relaxed for those with double vaccinations in next few months.
In regards to Game Fishing Tournaments, I would think January may see them up n running again?
We have decided no to raise the membership prices and have kepted them the same as they have been.
Please pay via direct debit and scan n e-mail membership forms.
Great to see the Yellowfin tuna in so close atm and reminds me of the 80’3 when I was catching them off the rocks (LBG) at the Blowhole J

We need your support via a submission to retain the Boat Ramp at Kiama Harbour.
Simplification and explanation-Re-Draft Kiama Harbour Revitalisation proposal-Feb 2021
To try and simplify the situation/proposal, it’s impossible to re-locate the boat ramp (physically) to that proposed location and you don't need to be a civil engineer to see that. Re-location would also cause huge problems with parking, both trailer and rock pool vehicles etc. The current situation with the boat ramp location is fine and it does not require any change with all ancillary infrastructure there to support it and expenditure has already been committed. The proposed Break wall would block the main channel and is not required. I assume most who support the draft proposal don't have trailer boats and don't swim in the rock pool and possibly hardly visit the Harbour? The Surf Club Jet boat is located adjacent this ramp for easy and fast access. This is the only area for boats and maritime use must come as a first priority. There is a need to fix existing infrastructure and a few million would do that eg retaining wall/promenade damaged and requiring work etc. The 2014 Master Plan has fixed transport both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, with a busy small area, it's always going to be congested on weekends etc.
The draft proposal would cost over a hundred million with no funds allocated it. Just an insane proposal driven by a few that is unrealistic/commercialism orientated type people over basically the natural and historic beauty that is Kiama.
These submission must go to:
and cc to:
I am attaching a draft copy for you to complete and just add your name and address then e-mail as per above addresses.

Submissions must be in by this Friday 5th March.
