While the yacht club is unfortunately still closed for large social activities under lockdown Level 3 restrictions, our restaurant and deck is now open for sit down meals. We have complied with all the government regulations. Your temperature will be taken and your details recorded upon entry. Hand sanitiser is freely available throughout the venue and surfaces will be sanitised after each guest. We would like to remind our members that the law requires you to wear a mask at all times and maintain your social distance. Mondays and Tuesdays the Tavern of the Seas is open for piping hot coffee, cappuccinos, croissants and muffins from 9h00 for our early birds. Wednesdays to Sundays we are trading from 9h00 to 17h00, offering a limited menu. We have not done away with takeaways – they are still available when you check on your boat. Looking forward to your company!

ROYAL CAPE YACHT CLUB

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The Royal Cape Yacht club maintains the historic description of the City as the "Tavern of the Seas”. It has a deserved reputation for its Hospitality to visiting yachtsmen. Since I first called in with Suhaili in 1966 on my way from India to the UK, I have called in many times and the friendliness has not changed in 50 years.

Sir Robin Knox Johnston

Cape Town is increasingly being acknowledged as the events capital of Africa, and I would like to thank the Royal Cape Yacht Club for contributing to this status
