Good day once again Members of the Seven Seas Club,

 

Apologies for the glitch, but I inadvertently sent out the wrong e mail minutes ago. Please be aware of the following Club Notices for September 2016:

 

Happy Hour and 100 Club Draw.  The next Happy Hour and 100 Club Draw will take place at the Club on Thursday the 8th of September 2016 from 17h00 to 18h00.  Boerewors Rolls will be available at R20 each.  Normal attendance prizes for two lucky members in attendance will be drawn.

 

Seven Seas Club Quiz Evening.  The next Club Quiz Evening will take place at the Club on Wednesday the 21st of September 2016 at 19h00 for 19h30.  Please provide your own refreshments if required. After Jack London’s message last month re attendance, there was a most encouraging response at the last quiz evening where the Club fielded no less than 6 tables. This is only 4 tables short of the desired 10 tables, so come on Members let’s have 10 tables on the 21st!! 

 

Yours aye, 

 

Glen Marlow

(Club Manager)

Home today to both Naval and Civilian members sharing a common interest and passion for maritime issues, the Seven Seas Club was originally formed by officers of the South African Navy as a private club providing facilities for reading, recreation, refreshment and companionship in a relaxed atmosphere for serving and retired officers and their guests. The serving Chief of the South African Navy is the Patron of the Club and, the Flag Officer Fleet, stationed in Simon's Town, is the Honorary President of the Club.

 

The Chief of the Navy is: Vice Admiral M.S. Hlongwane

The Flag Officer Fleet is: Rear Admiral B.K. Mhlana

The Club opened in 1959 on a site with magnificent views over Simon's Bay and the East Dockyard. The view from the Club bar has changed somewhat over the years but is still one of ships and boats and is still a view to be envied by many other clubs throughout the World. 

The club contains memorabilia, mainly in the form of photographs and badges of naval ships, many of which were inherited from the Naval Officers' Club vacated by the Royal Navy in 1956. It was of this old Club that Rudyard Kipling wrote:

"In this Club, as the Captains come and go,

you will hear the gossip of all the Seven Seas."

 

On the third Friday of every month the members and guests assembled in the Club raise their glasses and toast our Sister Clubs, the Seven Seas Clubs in London and Adelaide.
