| GORDONS BAY BOAT ANGLING CLUB|
| With the aim of promoting goodwil amongst all anglers, conserving marine life in False Bay and to recognise Government and Fisheries Department regulations, the Gordon's Bay Boat Angling Club was formed on Tuesday 5 November 1968 with 53 paid up members.
The subscription fee set at this time was the princely sum of R2.00 per annum which was increased to R6.00 in January 1969.
Founder Chairman was a gentleman by the name of Keith Crookes and he had a committee of seven members.
The first outing as a club took place on Saturday 17 November 1968 together with the Cape Boat and Ski-Boat Club. Launching was supposed to take place at 04:30 from Gordon's Bay Harbour but due to a strong South Easter the boats held back. However, at 05:30 the wind slacked off and with high spirits the anglers set off.
Gordon's Bay Boat Angling Club took part in their first competition against Peninsula Ski Boat Club on 23 November 1968.
7th December 1968 saw the club hold their first annual Christmas Dinner Dance which was attended by seventy two members and friends.
Sunday 2nd February 1969 the club was invited by the Cape Boat and Ski-Boat Club to fish off Cape Point.
At the first Annual General Meeting it was decided to donate two Walkie Talkies to the National Sea Rescue Institute (N.S.R.I) due to their lack of communications on the water.
The second competition between GBBAC and CBSBC saw GBBAC take the honours by winning the competion.
Over the years the GBBAC has gone from strength to strength and today boasts a beautiful clubhouse in Harbour Island with ample facilities and a membership of 340. |
