Now that the 10km requests are done I’m looking to have Winter racing tops made. Running in winter with vests only or off Pirates red/white under shirts is ideal.

Exactly like our “summer” running vest, but with sleeves either long or short.

Please could you ask all interested runners, in your next email, to email me if interested so we can gauge quantities needed and the costs.

Join us for our monthly Beer Club evening.

VENUE: Pirates Sports Club – Pigeon House
DATE: Thursday 16th July 2015
TIME: 19h00
COST: R60 (includes a light meal & tasting of beers)
STYLE THEME: Winter Ales

Just over a week to go till the next Pirates Craft Beer Club evening. This one is a biggie!! We are doing the next evening in the PCBC Style Series. This month we will be focusing on Winter Ales. Demonstrating how good beers can make you feel great, even if the weather is a little cold.

We have 5 different beers from 5 different breweries that we will be tasting on the evening. The beers will also be available for sale on the evening for you to enjoy (and to stock your home supplies). Even though we have lined up everyone already we are going to keep you salivating by announcing the beers a couple at a time. It also then means that you get plenty of emails regarding the evening and thus have no excuse that you may have forgotten.


Agar’s Brewery Black Mamba Stout
Mitchell’s Knysna Brewery Milk and Honey Ale
Keghouse Pumpkin Ale
Swagga Breweries Porter
Gilroy’s Brewery Traditional Ruby Ale

As usual you need to RSVP for the event, especially so on this one where the stocking is done by PCBC. We are continuing our hi-tech trend and thus just respond to the form that should by now take you less than 30 seconds:



Double Klipdrift and Coke for only R25 (18h00 – 20h00 Saturday only)


We would like to introduce you to Patricia who works at Pirates:
