- St Francis Sustainable Seas Centre opens this Friday (9 November)

A new working visitors centre, the St Francis Sustainable Seas Centre at Port St Francis, will be officially opened on Friday 9 November with a dinner with guest speaker Peter van Kets, followed by an open day on 10 November that will end with music and a braai on Squid Square while rubbing shoulders with a few King’s rugby players.

Peter van Kets is no stranger to St Francis.  He has twice rowed across the Atlantic Ocean in unsupported races, one being a 76 day solo journey.  Van Kets's adventures this year started with the Race to the South Pole with Braam Malherbe as part of a two man South African team.   “We raced for the Earth. We are all in a race against time to slow down and ultimately stop climate change and global warming. Our future and the future of all species depend on the decisions we make and the actions we take in the next few years,” Van Kets said when he agreed to be the guest speaker at this very special occasion.

The dinner will start at 17:30 for 18:00.  Tickets are available at R150 per person, and includes a 3 course meal prepared by Chef Dewald from Chez Patrick at Port St Francis.  A cash bar will be available and if you would like to join in, contact Sam Bester on 083 7722 112 or gypsea@saol.com.  Saturday’s program will include a bicycle polo tournament on the square, a Chilly Willy swim (200m, 400m and the Port St Francis Mile), various competitions and fun and games for all ages.  Village Square Superspar will be the Braai Masters for the day.

The St Francis Sustainable Seas Centre is a working visitors centre focusing on conservation and sustainability of our ocean and coast.  The opening display is a scientific award winning display on sharks, which includes a listening booth and life size model.  More world class interactive displays will be brought to the centre which will also educational presentations, kids programmes and tourist activities.  The centre also hosts international interns to assist with various research projects in the area, and the first four Canadian interns are already put to work.
