All Harbour and Bembridge Boat Storage offices are currently closed to customers due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, but we are open for telephone enquiries (01983 872828) whenever possible between the hours of 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday. At the current time we ask that you do not visit in person please, either telephone or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please call Malcolm Thorpe on 07973 256 248.
Separate staff teams are on site working independently on a maintance programme - PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH these staff members - all queries should be directed as above. Our absolute priority is to keep our staff as safe as possible.
We are looking forward to welcoming boats back to the Harbour over the forthcoming season when it is safe to do so ... with that in mind, event planning is well underway, subject to the restrictions in place at the time - click here for the 2021 Events Programme or go to the individual events page. In the meantime, keep safe and well.

Our nominated charity in 2021 will once again be The Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy, for whom our visitors and Harbour users have helped us raise over £17,600 over the last 3 years. To read about this amazing charity take a look at their page.
For Facebook followers we will be continuing our monthly Draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth during 2021 ....
For visitors new to the Harbour we recommend a look at the Navigation Section, where you'll find a pictorial guide to safe pilotage in the Harbour that can be printed off for use on board. There is also a video guide of the entrance channel.
The Harbour is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and nearby Brading Marshes are home to the first RSPB site on the Island. There are many picturesque walks in and around the area, historic sites to visit, beautiful beaches to enjoy and a busy Harbour where there's always something to watch. The villages of Bembridge and St Helens offer a rich variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and are well worth exploring. Visit our Local Information section for more details. Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club both offer their facilities to visiting yachtsmen - details here.
See you soon ...
