Quizzes

The Port Owen Yacht Club quizzes are proving a great success.

Please see the page "Quizzes", where we have posted details of the quiz events and winners.  Quiz nights have been held every second Monday night when light pub-style meals are served. 


Wednesday and Friday night socialising

The club is becoming increasingly busy on Wednesday nights when pub grub is served - a variety of tasty dishes at economical prices. Even the cold winter weather is not deterring people from coming to the club: or perhaps people come to warm up in the friendly atmosphere.

Friday nights are "club nights". Many people attend, some to eat the tasty Friday night meal, and others just to share in the friendship, and to try and answer the Commodore's quiz questions. The Commodore's speech is heard at around 19:00. General club news is announced.


                                Saturdays at the club

On the first Saturday morning of each month, the market is held. You can see more about this on the "Market" page. 

If there is a special sporting event on the television, the club opens in the afternoon / evening, and this turns into a very merry event, with the referee being offered much helpful advice by the club members.   


Port Owen Yacht Club Kruispad Cruise

Once a year the club enjoys a braai on the lawns at Kruispad, Arthur Melck's historical farm. Some members travel up by boat, others by road.

In the photo below our host, Arthur Melck, is receiving a gesture of thanks from our Commodore, John Nosworthy.

Below is another photo taken at the Kruispad Cruise, with a relaxed crowd next to the river.

Below is Russell Foster's boat arriving at Kruispad's jetty for the braai.

 


 30th Anniversary dinner

The Port Owen Yacht Club has been going strong for a good length of time!

The 30th anniversary was celebrated in style. Below is the club's Rear Commodore House, Neville Furnell, still smiling after working very hard all day to prepare the venue.
