A Message from our Commodore
Whether you are an existing member or are considering becoming one, welcome to the Brading Haven Yacht Club website. I hope that it gives you all the information you need. Brading Haven is a members' club founded in 1950 by like-minded people who enjoyed being on the water. Today's club upholds this ethos; we welcome people with interests in racing, cruising, fishing, motor boating, canoeing or in our varied social programme.
If, after visiting our website you are interested in becoming a member or would like to know more about us, we would be very pleased to welcome you at the club and answer any questions you may have.

It is with regret that we inform you of the death of Bill Dorey. The funeral will take place on Tuesday 11th March and the arrangements are as follows; 1200 for the close family at the Isle of Wight Crematorium. 1430 A Thanks Giving Service at The Methodist Church, Bembridge and after at BHYC. For those attending a splash of colour would be welcome.
On Friday 21st March the club is holding its annual Fitting Out Supper which marks the beginning of the new sailing season, all members are welcome to attend. Please ensure that you have confirmed your attendance if you wish to collect your prize. Prizes will only be presented to those prize winners who attend on the evening. See menu on page 12 of the Newsletter.
We are pleased to announce that Timothy Woodcock has agreed to accept appointment as Finance Officer. At the most recent Management Meeting Tim was co-opted to the Management Committee. We thank him for taking on the role and wish him success during his term of office.
From the 20th March the Club Newsletter will not be sent out to members as an attachment but as a message with a link to the document on the website. Publication will remain weekly on a Wednesday. It is essential for members who wish to continue to receive Club Newsletter publication notices and other messages but have not currently registered for access to the Members Area of the Club web site to do so. Click on 'Login' on the menu bar above and then on 'New Registration' and fill in your details.
Members who have registered on the current web site will be automatically transferred to the new site and do not need to do anything. Members who opt out from electronic communications will still be able to access the Members' Area as normal to book discounted ferry tickets etc.
As part of the ongoing maintenance of the club site it has become relevant to know more about the area around the sloped concrete bank at the western end of the club site. This is the area between the walkway to the deepwater pontoon and the visitors' marina. There is some deterioration of the sloped concrete structure. Behind this area is the original vertical harbour wall. The interest is in the detail of the construction of the original wall and more particularly the condition of the wall at the time that the concrete slope was added. It is not immediately obvious why the concrete was installed initially and information that leads to an understanding of this would be very useful. If any members can recall matters that they believe would be helpful would they please contact the office with a written note (firstname.lastname@example.org). If it is easier to have a discussion we could arrange a meeting with Keith Gentleman, the committee member with responsibility for this issue.
