New Club Skål International Cape West Coast
The tourism industry on the West Coast of Cape Province has expanded exponentially.
Two well -seasoned Skålleagues now living in Langebaan started debating the merits of a new club.
To get the ball rolling, Vernon Kirsten and Shirley Brown, who have both been Presidents of Skål International Cape Town, recruited a number of prominent local tourism industry providers.
This resulted in the establishment of Skål International Cape West Coast Club - number 742 – in September 2022. The inauguration of the club took place on 17th September 2022 at a gala dinner at Langebaan Boutique Hotel and Spa.
