In October the V&A Waterfront became the first corporate member the Rotary Club of Waterfront. Rotary is a business and networking membership organisation that is the largest service organisation in the world.  The Waterfront Club was chartered on 12 September 1992 by the Rotary Club of Cape Town with its membership anchored in the V&A Waterfront precinct.

One of the significant landmarks of the relationship between us and the club is the Directional Rotary Beacon with signage to other major waterfront developments around the world unveiled on the Pierhead 27 January 1995.

The club hosts the annual Waterfront Canal Challenge swim/run event.
