A significant birthday deserves a memorable big bash, and to mark this momentous occasion for the Point Yacht Club’s historic milestone, the club welcomes one and all to join them at their party.
In celebration of this event the club will be putting on a one of a kind evening entitled ‘Band on the Bay’.  Sit on the banks of the club, gazing out over the Durban Marina as the sun sets, while the fabulous, quirky South Jersey Pom Poms perform, for one night only.

What you can expect:

There will also be a fun sail in the bay where the club hopes to get 125 boats on the water. Opening up the anniversary Race, the formalities start on the water with a colourful sail past at 10:30, thereafter boats of all shapes and sizes will be taking to a course around the bay before returning to land for more celebrations.

Band by the bay:

Continuing with the bay series theme, the Anchorage Restaurant, headed up by the super-culinary wizard Chef Markus Banziger, will be offering flavourful Burgers and Bunnies, alongside  The Standeaven Craft brewery who  will be offering their liquid pride and joy.
If none of this is tickles your palate, the Anchorage Restaurant is open and The Yacht Club has a fully stocked bar offering a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.
Enjoy the magnificent Durban sunset, as you grab a bite to eat, enjoy a few beverages and relish an evening of blues and views.

Important Infortmation:

The entrance fee is R60 which also gets you a free beer or cider.
Birthday celebrations get underway at 3pm.
Parking is R20 for the afternoon and is situated in the Point Yatch club’s safe parking area.
