The Boat House : The Making of a Prawn Star


Thanks to all who made our last Grill & Chill event such a great evening. The combination of our BBQ King Prawns, bottle of rose and our new band turned out to be a recipe for a good few hangovers with many partying well into the early hours. The Prawn Star entries gave us a good laugh, a couple of my personal favourites were Misty Mussel (who didn’t quite make it up to the mic) and Lucky Sperm Whale, but the coveted title of The Boathouse Prawn Star 2016 was awarded to Rusty Hammerhead, a.k.a. Kevin Bendall from Pie in the Sky. A name I’m sure he will be remembered by for years to come!

September Line Up


You say Taco, I say Tequila. For those who missed out on attending our last event the next Islander Grill & Chill night is Tacos & Tequila on the 9th September, where we will be celebrating the vibrant flavours of Mexico. With a line-up of Tequila samplings, Margaritas, Tacos and Mariachi vibes, this is set to have all the ingredients of another great gathering so dig out those sombreros and come shake your Maracas!


For our Crew Card Holders, there will be a special selection of Tequilas and Mezcal to sample and the chance to show us your hidden talent, courtesy of tequila, to win some swag!

So be sure to sign up for your card and register early!


Next on our calendar is National Braai Day on Saturday 24th September and being a proud ‘Saffa’, I welcome any excuse to savour a good Boerie Roll or Peri Peri Chicken, so stop by as you can be sure we will have the braai fired up, tongs out and our resident prawn star in attendance with his pies & biltong; a teaser of what’s to come three weeks later on the 15th October when we hold our annual South African Day in Mallorca. In its third year, this great family day is a lot of fun and everyone is welcome to come and experience a little South African culture.  facebook.com/South-Africans-in-Mallorca


There’s a lot happening in October and in the first week, we turn our focus to two things very close to my heart – Community and Marine Conservation. On the 2nd, with thanks to the co-operation of the Port Authority, we showcase a wonderful project ‘Palma Art Lover’ created by Frankie Sunshine, a project to further help the clean up our marina. The items collected will be turned into art and displayed in our car park for everyone to see, get involved and join in this great initiative. Bars, BBQ and music from 4pm. www.facebook.com/palma.art.lovers/
