Pleasant Point Yacht Club

This Yacht Club belonging to the community of South New Brighton was founded seventy-five years ago, here at the mouth of the Avon River. The club itself offers all manner of facilities on site, but please check with the club beforehand if you wish to make use of them. Please be advised that the club's buildings and storage shed suffered extensive damage in the 2011 earthquake, and as of this writing, repairs were still ongoing to the club and the Domain. Obviously, this stretch of river is popular with recreational boaters of all ability levels, so swimmers should take care around any watercraft.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Pleasant Point Yacht Club is not sampled

SOURCE INFORMATION

Canterbury Regional Council monitors water quality at popular swimming spots throughout the Canterbury region during summer. Water samples are collected weekly from around 100 recreational swimming sites from mid-November to February/March. LAWA assigns each site a grade, which is based on the last three years of monitoring data from the site.

Coastal waters are tested for Enterococci levels.

The council issues an amber alert if a single sample level of Enterococci are greater than 280 units /100ml.

Pulse Energy updates Swim Guide for the latest water quality information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season. Data in Swim Guide is sourced from LAWA’s “Can I Swim Here” program.
