Understanding the CapeWest “ranking” process

Regardless of your age or experience in RC boating, when you join CapeWest as a member, you start at the bottom of our ranking system. This is by no means a reflection on your abilities, but an incentive scheme designed to ensure participation in all Club activities.

Ranking events are ticket based. You need a ticket to participate in any of our ranking events.

When you arrive at the ranking event, your ticket will be scanned and you will be marked as “checked in” on the ticketing platform. Each “Check in” will earn you a higher rank and will also extend your membership with one month.

Getting started:

To qualify, you have to join the Officer’s Mess for R35 a month.

After attending your second club event, you will be entered into the ranking system.

Thereafter, each ranking event will promote you to the next rank and add a free month to your membership.
