Local Clubs

The Harbour is home to two active & vibrant sailing clubs & an angling club

Bembridge Sailing Club can trace its origins back to 1886, with the Bolton & Paul part of the clubhouse built in 1896.  The "new" part of the clubhouse was built in 2001-02. Members enjoy packed social and sailing calendars and it is the home of the Bembridge Redwings, the Bembridge One-Designs & the Bembridge Illusion fleet – a scaled down version of the 12m yachts that competed for the America's Cup - which race in the Harbour over the winter. 

The Club is affiliated to the RYA and is a Volvo Champion Club.  The summer sailing programme begins at Easter and sailing courses are held for Cadets and Junior Cadets.

BSC welcomes visiting yachtsmen from RYA affiliated clubs - catering is available on Friday evenings, Saturday & Sunday lunchtimes throughout the year & daily from mid-July to the end of August.  Delicious Rally suppers etc in superb surroundings by arrangement.  Phone 01983 872237 or visit www.bembridgesailingclub.org
