We've had a wonderful 2017 season and plans are well underway for next year (event dates below). We are once again looking after a plethora of over-wintering boats both on pontoons and under cover at BBS.
Our Winter pontoon berthing rates are hard to beat - check out the Special Offers section for details and news of a Special Christmas Lift & Scrub Offer. Bembridge Boat Storage offer internal/external storage, shrink wrapping, valet services and general maintenance, or you can use their slipway to "do-it-yourself" or Rent a Rack.
Our Family Fun Weekend at the end of July was a wonderful, action packed event (despite some less than friendly weather!) A report can be found on the event page. Next year's dates: 27th-29th July.
Our new event this year - Oktoberfest (held in September as tradition dictates!) - was a feast of local fare - have a look on the event page for more info. 2018's date: Saturday 22nd September.
Jazz on the Quay will be on Saturday 16th June next year - a report and gallery for this year's event can be found on the event page.
Our 2017 nominated charity is The Sophie Rolf Trust - KissyPuppy, for whom we have been fundraising throughout the year - please have a look at their page to read about the wonderful work they are doing.
Ralvins Street Food Cafe is now closed for the winter but will be back next year serving up their delicious coffee, homemade cakes, breakfast rolls and light breakfasts ...
For Facebook followers we are continuing our monthly Draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth during 2017 ....
For visitors new to the Harbour we recommend a look at the Navigation Section, where you'll find a pictorial guide to safe pilotage in the Harbour that can be printed off for use on board. There is also a video guide of the entrance channel and an electronic Navionics chart.
The Harbour is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and nearby Brading Marshes are home to the first RSPB site on the Island. There are many picturesque walks in and around the area, historic sites to visit, beautiful beaches to enjoy and a busy Harbour where there's always something to watch. The villages of Bembridge and St Helens offer a rich variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and are well worth exploring. Visit our Local Information section for more details. Bembridge Sailing Club and Brading Haven Yacht Club both offer their facilities to visiting yachtsmen - details here.
See you soon ...
