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: July & August Every Sunday at 19:00pm
Rest of the year Every Sunday at 13:30pm
Cost: .50c per head for charcoal
Bring your own food and drink
Latest News About BBQs
Andrew has made a donation of 185 Euros to the local Samaritans in Cartagena, from the excess money that has accumulated in the BBQ fund pot.
It’s good to know that your .50c per head not only provides charcoal for the BBQ!
A big thank you to Andrew for taking the time to make the donation.
BBQs will continue to start at 19:00hrs throughout September. We can discuss the change back to 13:30hrs once the winter community becomes established.
Posted on behalf of Andrew:
I made a donation of €167 from the BBQ pot to a charity that supports underprivileged families and children in Santa Lucia (the fishing port area). A receipt is attached. I plan to make one further donation to a local charity before I leave. Please let me know if you have a favourite charity in Cartagena.
If you have any items for sale, bring them along on the last Sunday in the month and sell them at the BBQ.
During July and August BBQS will start at 19.00hrs. Please remember to invite any new crews on your pontoon.
If you are able to help with setting up and cleaning the BBQS in August or September, please let me know.
