Fools Point is the point where most Vaal Dam sailors had made a "un-controlled beach"
Hawaiian Shore is a shallow point just before the island and it is marked with a buoy. When the dam is at 60% of it's capacity Hawaiian Shore and Beacon Island are the popular places to have a braai, but at 90% of it's capacity you must try to avoid the buoys.
"Converence" is where the Wilge and the Vaal River meets. Just after Manten Marina is "Dicky's Fart". At this place there are normally an unexpected strong wind and is named after the owner of Manten Marina, Dicky Manten.
Oranjeville is not a very popular place to sail because of the bridge and shallow water.
