Weekend in Port Owen

Spent last weekend on the houseboat in Port Owen. My friend Paul Stuyck had his 80th birthday party at the Port Owen Yacht Club on Friday evening and we had a nice celebration.
I bought my first Alfa Romeo Gulia from Paul in 1960 new out of the box for R2600.00. Our friendship goes back a long time. For a man of 80 he is still very active and plays his part in the community. If you need something done, ask Paul he delivers.
Paul was one of the founder members of the Vogel Vlei Yacht Club where he was also the commodore. They moved to the West Coast and Paul was asked by the municipality of Langebaan to establish the yacht club there. He became the commodore of Langebaan Yacht Club.
The Stuyck family then moved to Port Owen where Paul and his wife have been very active in the community. Paul was the commodore of the Port Oven Yacht Club several times. He had several yachts and boats and all of them named Lucky Lady.
We watched the Stormers sweeping the floor with the Bulls at Michael and Vera’s house on Saturday. We celebrated the win with a delicious snoek braai and lots of red wine.
All for now
