On Friday the 16th August, The Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Table Bay, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Hermanus and the African Pride Arabella Hotel and Spa, hosted the first annual wine auction in Hermanus. The proceeds of the wine auction will fund the new 6.5 metre rescue vessel at Hermanus that has been named Rotarian Burnett.
