About The Club

Founded in 1886, Bembridge Sailing Club has a rich history as one of the oldest sailing clubs in the United Kingdom and is situated in Bembridge Harbour, enjoying beautiful vistas across on the eastern end of the Isle of Wight and Solent approaches.

The Club supports an active members’ social programme of formal and informal dinners, talks, parties and dances throughout the year. It also acts as a beautiful venue to host outside bookings for weddings,  parties and other events.

Bembridge Sailing Club is an accredited RYA Training Centre, and became a Volvo Champion Club at the beginning of 2002.

The Club sees a particularly vibrant summer season with regattas and courses, drawing sailors from far and wide to the East Wight.
Particularly popular fixtures in the programme are the Cadet Weeks, which enable our young members to gain RYA accredited qualifications, while having a great time out on the water.

Along with our range of youth sailing courses, BSC is also able to offer RYA powerboating courses, which are popular with young people and adults alike, as well as a full race programme to keep Members busy too.

The dinghy sailors are not the only people who benefit from residency at Bembridge Sailing Club, as there are also three keelboat fleets – an active Illusion fleet that benefits from the shelter of the harbour, sailing during the winter season between October and April.

BSC is also host to a fleet of Bembridge One Designs and a fleet of Bembridge Redwings, that sail at weekends between Easter and the end of September and every day throughout August.
