Brading Haven is a vibrant and dynamic club founded over 60 years ago by local businessmen and artisans who wanted to make the inviting waters around the island accessible to all no matter their backgrounds or positions. Today the club takes part in a whole range of water activities from canoeing and sailing, to cruising and motor boating and even an annual paper boat race. Want to learn to sail or motor boat? Don't have your own boat? No problem, join in one of our training courses or use/hire one of our club boats.

If your love of water is restricted to watching, our bar and restaurant provides one of the best views on the island whilst the club house offers a range of additional activities such as live music, bridge and speakers as well as formal and informal dinners and dances etc. We hold the reputation for being the friendliest club on the south coast so why not pop in and have a chat.

Sailing Club Software, the company which provides the Dutyman software, has published an article about how Brading Haven uses it to help the Club function efficiently. In addition to promoting Dutyman, it is excellent publicity for the Club. Click here to read the article.
