About Us

Port Owen Yacht Club has approximately 290 members, some of whom are country members. There is an active sailing programme: activities for powerboats are also included. Our club is a popular venue for hosting sailing events, especially dinghy races, as we can take advantage of a wide slow-moving river plus the safe bay.

The club has reciprocity with the following clubs:

Algoa Bay Yacht Club

East London Yacht Club

Gordons Bay Yacht Club

Knysna Yacht Club

Lake Deneys Yacht Club

Pennant Nine Yacht Club

Point Yacht Club

Seal Point Yacht Club.

Port Owen yacht club also has a vibrant social life. The clubhouse is open on Monday nights for quizzes and on Wednesday nights for general socializing: pub grub is available on both. Friday is the big club night with a 2-course dinner and the Commodore’s speech. If there are big sports matches on Saturday then the bar is open and the television is on. The Sunday roast lunches are well known.
