What’s on in St Francis this weekend

The big event of the weekend is undoubtedly the Kromme Descent swimming event that sets off just below the gorge on the Kromme River tomorrow morning. Whilst not exactly a spectator sport you can be sure there will be a flotilla of boats travelling upriver tomorrow and Sunday morning ferrying the 100 competing swimmers to the start. The swim is in two parts and finished at The Cove on Sunday morning.

Friday Fish lovers have a choice of Hake or Calamari & chips at either Joe Fish at The Resort or at The Links at R69 and R79 respectively but a note to evening diners, Joe Fish will be closed to the public on Friday evening so get there for lunch.


Saturday morning see the inaugural Car Boot Sale opposite the Caltex petrol station starting at 9:00. The cost, we surmise, is R50 per car if you have something to sell rather than if you are there to buy.

On Sunday

The St Francis Brewing Company is having one of their popular Sunday Roast, this Sunday – Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding being the dish of the day but you need to book before 11:00am on Saturday to reserve your delicious beef slices.

An alternative of course is the ever popular Joe Fish Calamari & Ribs combo down in Cape St Francis, As always live music is on offer around the pool at Joe Fish on Sunday’s making for a laid back dining experience. Plenty to choose from off the menu is you are not into calamari or ribs.
