BHYC - Prospective Members' Page


Whether you are an existing member or are perhaps considering becoming a member and looking to see what we have to offer, I would like to welcome you to the Brading Haven Yacht Club website and I hope that it is able to give you all the information you are looking for.

Brading Haven is a members' club which was founded in in 1950 by a group of like-minded people who enjoyed being on the water. Today's club still upholds this ethos and we welcome people whether their interests are in sailing, cruising, fishing, motor boating canoeing etc. Our membership currently stands at around 1,000, several hundred of whom are cadets and young people.

Our members have primarily joined the Club for the sailing and social facilities and activities it provides, but they also enjoy a number of privileges with local companies as follows:

  • Fixed rate ferry fares with Wightlink which are generally less than those available for peak rate journeys, which may be booked and paid for through the Club's web site. Note that some date restrictions apply.
  • A 10% discount on Red Funnel ferry tickets purchased through the Club's web site.
  • Entitlement to join the Club's Corporate Membership Scheme with The Leisure Club at the Bembridge Coast Hotel, offering a range of inclusive sport and leisure activities plus other free and discounted benefits.
  • A discount of at least 10% for members and their friends on all Hudson Wight performance sailwear.

Please contact the Club if you would like any more information about these benefits.

Management of the club is through a number of volunteer committees headed by the Management Committee which meets monthly and is chaired by the Commodore. The work of the other committees each of which is chaired by a Flag Officer, and the opportunities offered to members, can be explored through the menu bar at the top of the page.
