PSA recognised as governing body

30 Aug 2011
Following a three year battle and a lengthy court case, Powerboat South Africa (PSA) has now been officially recognised as the national governing body for the sport of powerboat racing in South Africa.Powerboat Racing South Africa (PBRSA) had previously maintained that it controlled most members of the sport, PBRSA.In the spirit of unity, PBRSA chairman Christo De Jager was co-opted to the existing national executive committee of PSA as an additional member and PSA will co-opt two members of the former PBRSA as additional members of the executive committees of the 5 different class associations of PSA.All the former PBRSA members will now rejoin PSA and the necessary licencing and safety certification processes will be implemented immediately to make this possible.PSA will not continue with disciplinary proceedings that were pending against members of the splinter group, unless good cause exists for such continuation – the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) will have the final say on which cases should be proceeded with.To assist the unity process PSA will invite SASCOC to deploy one of its serving members as an additional member of the national executive committee of PSA.
