    "UBUNTU" WORD HUIS TOE GESLEEP...
                              ALWEER!


Afgeneem hieronder op Sondagoggend 14 Mei 2017 is 'n videogreep wat ontvang is van Sid Sancho, skipper van die "Allison", waar hulle besig is om die "Ubuntu" in te sleep na die Kaapse Dokke nadat die "Ubuntu" se MTU alweer moeilikheid op see gegee het.
 

               DE KELDERS - 19 MEI 2017

Afgeneem hieronder op Vrydag 19 Mei 2017 buitekant De Kelders is 25 pelagiese skuite besig om jag te maak op 'n enorme skool ansjovis wat teenwoordig was in die baai. Kykers moet daarop let dat hierdie video nie vir sensitiewe ore bedoel is nie - mededinging vir die grootste kol vis tussen die onderskeie skippers en ander onvoorsiene probleme het daartoe gelei dat gemoedere op tye hoog geloop het. Hou ook dop hoe ploeg "Wildekus" (Wilde Willemien) terug Agterbaai toe met 'n volvrag ansjovis...en "Rietgans II", julle maslig was nooit aangeskakel toe julle by die baai uitgeloop het nie...

 


   
    DIE KREEFSKUITE KOM HUIS TOE
                  KALKBAAI - 10 MEI 2017


Afgeneem hieronder op Woensdag 10 Mei 2017 is 'n seleksie van kreefskuite wat terugkeer na Kalkbaai oppad vanaf Hangklip met hul vangste vir die dag. Is dit miskien die enigste Kalkbaai video wat nog ooit geskep is? Dis waarom hierdie webblad bekend staan as Trawler Heritage!

             AGTERBAAI - 28 MAART 2017

Afgeneem hieronder op Dinsdagaand 28 Maart 2017 is 'n seleksie van pelagiese skuite wat terugkeer na die Agterbaai met rooi-oog aanboord, ten tyde van 'n stormsterk suid-ooste wind. Kykers moet egter die kwaliteit verskoon van die betrokke video weens die sterk wind en kwynende daglig wat die verfilming van die trawlkampioene bemoeilik het.

 

      
  
 


      

  
       
 



  

      
                  

          
      
           


   


       
       


        
  

                              

  

   


  

         
 

  


                     
 

    

                         
                                              
                      
                     

                      
                                 

              

              

          


          


                       


                      
      

        

                      
 
                                 
                         



              
             

                 
                            


              

              
                                  

        

             
            
                       
              
                       
      

 

 

   


   


                     
 
   

            

            
                     
      


                                    
 

 
 
                                    

                      
                                


                                         



 
  


 

    
                                 

 

 

                                         
                      


      

         


                                         



                                     

                      'n Gebed vir Sardyn
 
Heer, die Weskus pelagiese vissermanne is dankbaar vir die oorvloed industriŽle vis waarmee U die vissersvloot geseŽn het tot dusver gedurende die 2017 pelagiese seisoen. Daar is egter 'n groot nood in die bedryf weens die afwesigheid van Sardyne in ons see. Ons vra U asseblief om weer ons see te vul met Sardyne om diegene wat tans in nood verkeer die nodige uitkoms te gee. Amen


  WESKUS ERFENIS MAKIETIE - LAAIPLEK

              
SATERDAG 23 SEPTEMBER 2017


                         


Dis weer tyd vir die jaarlikse Weskus Erfenis Makietie ten bate van die
S.A Visserye Museum wat aangebied word op die perseel van die
Laaiplek Hotel. Vir 'n volledige feesprogram raadpleeg die Laaiplek Hotel se Faceboek blad. Terwyl die res van Suid-Afrika nasionale braaidag gaan vier, gaan daar op Laaiplek "ge-trawl" word vir erfenis.

  
     HOU HIERDIE SPASIE DOP VIR DIE
   NUUTSTE TOEVOEGING TOT DIE
  TROTSTE VISSERSVLOOT TER WÍRELD...
       (DIS 'N GROOTE WAT OPPAD IS!)


           

 

        HAPPY BIRTHDAY "VIOLET GLEN"!
                          
95 YEARS OLD

Pictured below is the Kalk Bay handline fishing boat, the "Violet Glen", a wooden hull vessel who celebrates her 95th birthday during 2017. The Proudest Fishing Fleet in the World salutes the oldest serving fishing vessel in the fleet. We all hold thumbs that she may reach her centenary in 2022. 

               
Dit gaan nog interessant wees om eendag te kan sien of daar enige glasveselskuite sal wees wat ook 95 jaar diens sal kan lewer...Trawler Heritage betwyfel egter of enige van die huidige glasvesels ooit so 'n hoŽ ouderdom sal kan bereik...daar is dan alreeds van hulle wat begin "flex"...

        WESKUS STORM - 7 JUNIE 2017

Afgeneem hieronder kry die die Weskus kreefskuite ook hulle beurt op Trawler Heritage. Hieronder is twee video grepe van die "Potberg" asook 'n musiekvideo waarin nie minder as 40 kreefskuite vertoon word, waarskynlik die eerste video ooit van die aard wat geskep is van die Weskus se kreefskuite.
