Every Sunday, weather and clashing YPC events allowing, a BBQ is held at the Yacht Port Cartagena, just inside the main gate. There will be at least one, sometimes two BBQ’s lit for you to cook your own food on. YPC kindly provide the BBQ grills, tables and chairs, for which we are ever thankful.
Occasionally the more musical among the group bring along their guitar, ukulele or other instrument for a jam/sing-a-long.
A volunteer normally takes responsibility for ensuring the BBQ’s are cleaned before use, charcoal purchased and lit ready for use. We normally ask for a 50c/head contribution for the charcoal. When the money collected over the weeks starts to build up, we make a contribution to a local charity. You will find latest news about the BBQ below. If there is no news, then the next BBQ is definitely on!
Where: Yacht Port Cartagena, just inside main gate
When: October onwards – Every Sunday at 16:30pm (until further notice)
Cost: .50c per head for charcoal
Bring your own food and drink

Message from Ray on High Hopes
We have made a Donation from BBQ fund
As some of you might be aware Rosario in the office has recently had a very stressful time , her husband had a very severe accident at work about 6 weeks ago ( fell out of a tree) where he was hurt severely ( life and death) he has had to have vertebrae fused in his back and has been hospitalised for a long time . This has had a huge impact on the family and Rosario is now one income down .
After thought and a few suggestions from others it has been decided that the BBQ fund would make its donation this time to Rosario and her family, they have been given €140 from the pot
Rosario is very touched by the thought and thanks everyone very much .
please keep your eye on the weather as it is due to rain tomorrow so the BBQ will probably be cancelled! ☹️☔️
BBQ this Sunday -December 23
see you all on Christmas Day !
Sadly BBQ today is cancelled due to the weather forecast of rain ! Sorry
The location of Sunday’s BBQ has changed to the area outside the Capitania office. The Marina management have kindly provided us with additional chairs and tables and have requested that the BBQ now takes place in the area around the office so as to avoid traffic coming into and out of the marina.
Hope to see you all there on Sunday.
From Sunday 4th November the BBQ will start at 2.00pm
Hopefully this will enable us to make the most of the sunshine!
I’ve left it as late as possible, but in view of the current weather and the forecast for later, today’s BBQ is cancelled.
Hopefully everyone can now make alternative arrangements.
Weather permitting, normal service will be resumed next week!

Yacht Port Cartagena Community Fiesta Day
Sunday 28 October 2018
12:30 – 15:00
Followed by BBQ at 15:00
Everyone in the YPC community is welcomed to attend the inaugural Community Fiesta Day!
The purpose of the day is to introduce you to the YPC Community, to share laughter, information and a beer or two in a relaxed atmosphere. Do please come along if you can make it – or just come along to the BBQ at 15:00.
We would like as many people to participate. If you cannot make it on the day, why not donate a bottle of something for the Bottle Raffle Stall, or perhaps bake a cake to donate to be sold on the day. Details are below.
Cakes, Bakes, Cookies & Muffins
We would love to receive your ‘cakes and bakes’ donations for selling on the day so please put the date in your diary to remember to buy those ingredients and top up your gas supplies in preparation. Cakes and bakes from all nationalities most welcome. Where possible please indicate ingredients used in case of allergies. Cakes can be dropped off from 11am on Sunday 28 October.
Raffle tickets will be on sale for the popular bottle raffle. We would like your donations please – bottles can be anything (as long as they are unopened and in date!) – wine, beer, Shampoo, Sauces, Vinegars, Olive Oil and such like. If you’d like to start donating now, you can drop off at any of the following boats:
Iolandra on F Pontoon
AWOL on C Pontoon
Tatsu on C Pontoon
Kuta of Carrick on I Pontoon
Do you have any boat items that you would like to sell? If you do, now is your chance by renting a space for just €2 per area. You can set up your area from 11am on Sunday 28 October. If you would like to enjoy the day and leave your items for sale, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org further information.
Are you a sewist? Do you crochet? Can you knit? Or, perhaps you have always wanted to learn a new craft? This stall will have a few crafty bits for sale made by the talented community and will also be an opportunity to see if there are enough people interested in starting a regular crafting group. If you already have some crafts you would like to sell then for just €2 you can rent a table. Set up time will be from 11am on Sunday 28 October.
Tug of War
What better way to meet new people than to team up and participate in a Tug of War! It is only a bit of fun and not to be taken too seriously. If you are interested in taking part there will be a sign up sheet in the book exchange hut.
Both children and adults are welcome to dress up if they would like to. There will be a prize for the best dressed child. Obviously dressing up is optional.
Four Legged Friends
Your furry four legged friends are welcome along and will be put through their paces for their cuteness and ability to sit on command – well not quite but prizes will be awarded to the winners of ‘The Best Six Legs’, ‘Waggiest Tail’, ‘Owners Who Look Most Like Their Dogs’ and ‘Best Trick’ (performed by the four legged participant, obviously). Just a note on dogs: please do understand that not everyone is keen on dogs. Well behaved dogs are welcome and remember please clear up after them should they drop a clanger.
A weekly BBQ is held at the marina. On Sunday 28 October, this will start at 15:00 (from then on the time changes to 14:00). Please bring along all your food, drinks, cutlery, cooking utensils, plates etc. Each person is asked to contribute €0.50 cents towards the running costs of buying the coals and lighters. At the end of each quarter, all excess money is donated to a local charity nominated by the YPC Marina Staff.
If you would like to get involved or if you have any queries or questions, please do email email@example.com
We look forward to seeing you!
Keep an eye out on the sailcartagena.com website for updates
Due to popular demand we will be moving the start time of the BBQ to 5.00pm – 17.00 with effect from Sunday 7th October.
Now the evenings are getting cooler and the light is fading earlier, this will hopefully allow us to make the most of the warmth and light available.
Please remember, all YPC berth holders plus their friends families and guests are welcome. Please bring your own food and drink.
We request a donation of 50 cents per person to cover costs and all profits are then donated to local charities and good causes.
