Christmas Party and Prizegiving

HBYC Christmas Party was a very festive affair, with fine food, music and great Christmas Cheer! Many thanks to Penny, Cheryl and Patricia who organised the whole event, and also to Jeremy Nel who somehow turns out to be the inspiration for most of these things. Proceeds went to a very deserving local charity too. There are some great people in this club! More pics here.

Spare a thought for a a few ARC Yachts who were battling their way in to Hout Bay in a very strong wind at the same time, with great assistance from the NSRI who towed two of the yachts into the harbour in exceptionally difficult circumstances (70 knot winds, one sans rudder!) - and in pitch dark. Well done to James Beaumont who led this rescue (as I understand), James is also a HBYC Club Member.
