Winter Warmer Suppers at HBYC

Winter Suppers Dates and fun at HBYC

Wednesday 25th April, was the first of a series of ‘Winter Warmer Suppers we have planned at HBYC. The newly formed events team with Shirley Bowen, Cheryl Seymor and Penny Geyser have done a fabulous job making the club feel cosier for winter, with new gingham table cloths and candles on every table.

The galley crew will be adding a little more ‘warmth’ to our usual fare, with a special menu and the bar will be stocked with a great new selection of wines, craft beers and posh gins!

In April we invited members of our local Lions Club to join us and experience HBYC hospitality, and Paul Tomes gave a preview of our St Ayles Skiff rowing project, designed to connect communities in and around Hout Bay.

Here are the dates for Winter Warmer suppers

•23 May 2018

•20 June 2018

•25 July 2018

•22 August 2018

19 September will be a special ‘Spring Supper’

This is a great way to support the club through the winter months. Book at to enjoy the evening’s special menu. Normal galley service will be also be available in case you decide to join us at the last minute!

Fall in love with sailing

Fall in love with sailing

Phil and Gina fell in love with sailing quite a while back, however at last year’s Admiral’s Regatta, Phil decided to throw caution to the wind and find out if Gina might just love him, more than she loved sailing!  So he rigged their Sonnet’s spinnaker, to pop the question as the rounded the windward mark. Gina, however was so busy sorting a tangle in the spinnaker sheets, that she didn’t immediately look up at the newly hoisted sail.  A few tense moments for Phil, until Gina turned around with a huge smile on her face and a tear in her eye, and said I will, or I do, or something like that …. neither can quite remember.
The story was picked up by the Admiral’s Regatta PR team and went viral on Sailing Blogs around the world. A really cool way to propose!

Footnote: There were married about 6 months later and returned to sail in HBYC’s Admirals 2018 Regatta. Congratulations Gina and Phil!
