We are a community based not for profits Sailing Club at the west end of Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight. We have circa 800 members and a thriving group of sailors ranging in age from 8 to 80 including a large cadet section. This enables the Club to bring the local community into the sport and develop all sailors through our accredited RYA Training Centre. We pride ourselves on the quality of sailing at BHYC but we offer much more as we have a thriving social scene for all members with varied events throughout the year.
The Changing Room Project is quite simple. We need to upgrade our present changing room facilities. We must improve the ventilation, replace the old fixtures and fittings and totally revamp both Ladies and Gents changing rooms. The Club house itself was built in 1950 and the changing room extension was added in the 1970’s. Since then it has been well maintained and redecorated regularly however time now to renew.
The intention is to gut and refurbish both the changing rooms to bring them up to standard removing the old fixtures and fixings, the worn out tiles and flooring to bring it up to a standard for the 21st century so that it will last another 30 years.
The project will be completed using the existing building and Club Members will assist where they can on a voluntary basis. We have received a Grant from Sport England, thanks to their generosity, and the Club will match their support to cover the short fall. Hence the need to raise funds in support – please help us. Thank you for reading and in anticipation of your support.

Awesome club and thanks to the Bosun back in 1970's I still love sailing. It was the ability to leave a boat on the dock at low tide and for it to appear miraculously at the top of the slipway.
