Next week the concrete apron and final measuring for the two 1.5 meter sea gates will take place. We are hoping that this part of the Hole-in-the-Wall project will be finished by early July.

Sea View Yacht Club hosted supper to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Bembridge Lifeboat Station on Saturday 18th November 2017
Over 75 people from all parts of the island came to the celebration supper at the Sea View Yacht Club on Saturday 18th November to mark the 150th Anniversary of the Bembridge Lifeboat Station. Martin Woodward’s talk on the History of the Bembridge Lifeboat Station was fascinating, informative, amusing and in some instances deeply moving. We all went away very pensive and full of admiration for the courage and commitment of the

The final races before the summer pause were a strange mixture. On Wednesday there was a good turn-out with 11 boats in benign sailing conditions. Thursday’s weather forecast was not good with strong winds expected – in the end the wind gave up and 7 of the 14 Mermaids did not finish. So far in the series we have lost four of the Wednesday races and none of the Thursday ones. Normal

Wednesday was a really lumpy sailing day with wind over tide, which is probably why only five boats raced. That said it was a good close race and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thursday was a much nicer day and ten boats raced over a very good course. A couple of boats suffered a navigation malfunction, but managed to retrieve the situation (can you spot them in the picture?). Only another week to go

Tuesday evening and it was the final Team Racing match of the season against BHYC in near ideal conditions. Unfortunately, not everyone listened to the brief and the second match teams sailed a triangular course instead of a rectangular one. Despite abandoning that race, SVYC won the overall match, making a clean sweep for the season. Wednesday was back to reality with a pre-start drift and then abandonment due to lack of wind.

Wednesday and Thursday’s races were very similar. 10 boats in each race, light winds which kept shifting and a strongish tide. At one of the marks there was a gathering of six boats with tide and wind causing havoc, however, they all made it round the mark (just).
