Youth Sailing Programmes are ready to roll
Theo Yon, HBYC’s sailing instructor and Brent Barnett (Rear Commodore Sailing Development), have been busy working through our fleet of 09’er Sailing Dinghies, to get them all ship-shape for our July School Holiday Sailing schools. These boats are going to look great in a few weeks time … but they don’t have any names! Can you think of fun names for our 09ers?
Submit as many names as you can think up, type them into entry form below; and if your name is chosen, not only will this name be put onto one of the boats … but you’ll also win a free sailing lesson with Theo!
To enter you must be between 10 and 18 years old and able to get to Hout Bay Yacht Club for your sailing lesson. The winning names will be judged by our panel of experts at HBYC and winners will be notified by email, plus announced on our Website and Facebook page. Hurry entries close on June 30th!
As far as big bands go, they don’t get much bigger than Bob Mowday’s Big Band. 32 big-hearted musicians arrived at HBYC and wowed the 100 strong crowd with music that ranged from Glen Miller classics, to a big band arrangement of Mustang Sally! The band refuse to be paid and only play to help charities and fundraising events. Their generosity, combined with everyone who supported the event, helped us raise over R12 000, which will have a big impact on getting our youth sailing development programme back on track. Special thanks to Shirley Bowen and Cheryl Seymor for preparing the food and helping to set up the venue, and a big thank you to the HBYC staff, making our guests feel at home in the club. Here’a short clip of the band in action and HBYC rocking!

Formed nearly 10 years ago, the band only perform for charity fund raising events. They do it for the love of music.
