UPCOMING CMI SPONSORED EVENTS
BALLITO SKIBOAT CLUB SEAMAN CHALLENGE – SALMON BAY (Dec 19th – 23rd 2018)
Meet Megan and Cathi who will be representing us over the weekend!
Club Marine-sponsored Mark de la Hey starting fishing with his dad at about four-years-old. The family used to camp at Cape Vidal for three months a year – the ideal place to hone his angling skills.
If he wasn’t fishing off the beach or the rocks, Mark would be out at sea on their 17ft Yeld Cat – and later, he and his friends started catching fish off their surfskis. At around 20, he got one of the first Stealth Superlite fishing skis. The heaviest fish he’s ever caught on a paddleski was earlier this year – a 37.5kg Amberjack.
Over the last 12 years, Mark has filmed and presented over 500 angling shows on TV – on ESA, Reel Angling and now on FreeSpool, the popular fishing programme on the SuperSport channel. When in SA, he uses Yamaha’s SeaCat range of boats, to cover Travel and Lifestyle educational shows for the fishing industry.
“I have been so well supported by Club Marine over many years – they’ve covered my boats, tackle, paddleski, vehicle and more. They’ve always got my back.” He said.
South African competitive waterskier Travis Fisher, started skiing at just four years old.
He made his way up the junior ranks and into the open division, winning numerous provincial and national titles along the way.
Specializing in the slalom discipline, the Durban-based skier represented South Africa and competed at the 2011 and 2012 European and African Championships, as well as the Under 21 World Water Ski Championships.
Not only has Travis competed in the sport of waterskiing, but he has contributed immensely to the growth of the sport.
In 2010, he started the Mini League programme in KZN, which has proved highly successful and increased the number of competitors both locally and nationally.
In 2014, 2015 and 2016, he spent many months in the USA, coaching and training people on how to waterski effectively.
Travis continues to compete today and coaches local skiers in his free time. He also serves on the Waterski Committee in an advisory role.
It’s Spring and we love it! It may still be nippy but outdoor lovers are heading out to do what they love most and the leisure industry is coming out of hibernation!
Technicians are working feverishly in marine and bike workshops to get their clients up and running – while caravan parks and other leisure destinations springclean and upgrade – ahead of enthusiastic weekenders, holidaymakers, sportsmen and women.
Whatever your vibe and wherever you’re headed – we’ve got you covered 24/7/365.
Call us – we’ll take care of business while you play!

Avid Gamefish angler (and Enduro Racer), Stefan started bottom fishing at 8-years-old and by 16 had bought his first Skivee boat. His love of the sport took him to Australia where he chased Gamefish for 11 years and became a member of the “Grander Club” – with his 1120lb Marlin caught in the Lizzard Black Marlin competition.
In 2015, Stefan caught another monster Marlin, of just under 1100lbs, at the Mapelane Billfish competition.
Since moving to Umhlanga 2.5 years ago, he’s joined Umhlanga and Durban Skiboat clubs – and he fishes with Abrie Botha and Navigate’s Russell Duvenhage. Each year they fish all the Durban competitions, the Billfish 15000 and the Guinjata Bonanza – which he and his team at the time (including Lyn Adams), won in 2012.
He says, “Club Marine Insurance really understands the needs of boaters – as they are boating people themselves. When you claim you don’t have to try and prove yourself or answer a million questions about your boat – they know their business!”
Protea Bass Angler Shandon Hawman, started competitive angling for East Rand Bass Masters aged 16. Two years later he got his Southern Gauteng provincial colours and in 1998 was awarded Protea Colours. He’s fished for South Africa’s premier team 10 times, captaining the side in 2010 against Zimbabwe and in the Zone 6 Internationals in Swaziland. Shandon has also fished in the Presidents Team seven times. Apart from his regular job – he runs Bass Boats SA – an online business selling Viper S, Ruffnek boats and accessories, Mercury motors, Lowrance products and more.
Shandon, who skippers for Northerns Division, is also helping his son Slade (13) through the ranks – who hopes to achieve Junior Protea colours in the coming season.
He says, “Club Marine has given me excellent service for the last 10 years- they’re on point with claims and keep me up-to-date with my insurance and other boating industry news. The staff are so friendly and helpful!”
