Gansbaai's New Fishing Harbour is located in an area along the South African coastline subject to severe wave conditions (heights of 8 m to 9 m are not uncommon during an average winter season). It is located approximately 65 km northwest from the southernmost tip of Africa. Emergency repairs became vital when sections of the 200 m long leeward breakwater failed. A total of 60 m (Ch 66 to Ch 126) of breakwater had failed by March 2011 when the contractor, Guerrini Marine Construction, arrived on site.
