Here at BHYC we encourage all boaters to make the most of their pursuit, whether it be racing dinghies or cruising under power or sail.  We have some of the best waters for sail training around the IOW and as a recognised RYA Training Establishment we seek to develop confidence and competence on the water through a varied programme for all ages and abilities.  Our dinghy racing calender, one of the most varied and comprehensive in the Solent, is open to all sailors and we encourage members to get involved either by racing or in support roles, perhaps in a patrol boat, or as race officer.  We look forward to seeing you on the water!  Click on one of the links below to learn more about our activities and how you can join in.  For more information, see the menu on the left hand side of this page.

The Sailing Committee

The Sailing Committee has charge of the Club boats and all matters relating to sailing, mooring, storage and parking of boats. It consists of the Chairman (the Rear Commodore Sailing), two members appointed by the Management Committee and up to ten co-opted members. In addition,  the RTC Principal, the Club Secretary and the Finance Officer are ex-officio voting members.

The current composition of the Sailing Committee is listed on the Club's Organisation Chart

Sailing Support

Our Club staffs nearly 200 series & special races plus the Regatta in August plus the Cadet Regatta, plus numerous Training events and Sail Training Week. This is a busy club.  Would you like to help by helming or crewing a patrol boat or undertaking Race Officer duties? Training will be provided.  All sailors greatly appreciate those who assist in this way. This opportunity is open to ALL members - not just those who sail dinghies regularly.  Apart from sailing, what better way to enjoy our fair breezes and glorious sunshine than out on the ocean in one of our patrol boats.  To learn more about sailing support at BHYC, click here.

We use the Dutyman web based system to manage our sailing support roster.  To see the current Duty Roster, click here.  Use your browser back button to return to this page.
