Designed by Alan Coombes in 1955, the Bembridge Swan has been a familiar sight at the club for many years. The older Swans were built of wood and a few of the 20 or so that were built in the 1950's still survive, a testament to their owners' dedication. Many are the more recently produced GRP version and they are a fine and versatile vessel: roomy enough for a family picnic, fast enough to make racing interesting and far less likely to tip the crew in the ogin than is the smaller Scow.

I am optimistic that next season, 2018, we shall again regularly see five or more racing together, a fine sight and great fun.
