The sailing community at BHYC has organised a number of sections to bring together members with common interests on the water:

  • The Fast Handicap Section races boats with Portsmouth Yardstick (PY) handicaps of 1194 and under, including Wayfarers, Solos, and Lasers.
  • The Slow Handicap Section races boats with PYs of 1195 and over, mainly Picos, with Mirrors and Herons also represented.
  • The Scow Section is for the many members who sail Solent Scows, both in Club and inter-Club events.
  • The Wayfarer and Swan Sections are homes to the members who cruise and race these popular classes.
  • The Cruising Section organises sailing cruises in company in the summer and country walks with pub lunches in the winter.
  • The Motor Boat Section brings together members with cruisers and RIBs for sailing and social events.
Newcomers will be introduced to the section captains so that they can take full advantage of their BHYC membership.
