February is not just the month of LOVE but also the month when we commemorate the sinking of the HMT Birkenhead.

A service is held annually at the Dangerpoint lighthouse. This service is held by Gansbaai Tourism in conjunction with the Royal Navy Association, the Ganges and the Moths. It is attended by descendants, dignitaries from the British Consulate as well as the Overstrand Mayor and many more – all are welcome. In closing wreathes are laid at the Birkenhead monument. Weather permitting a trip to the Birkenhead rock is undertaken early on the 26th and biodegradable wreathes are thrown onto the rock.

Contact Gansbaai Tourism for more information!
