What a wonderful season - many lovely visitors, both old and new, and masses of activity out on the water - from Tackt-Isle Adventures' kayaks and paddleboards, to dinghy sailing and racing from Brading Haven Yacht Club and Bembridge Sailing Club.
You may be continuing to enjoy boating for a little bit longer, but if it's time to hunker down for Winter we have Special Winter Offers for walk ashore berthing alongside the Duver pontoon (until 31st March 2017) or take a look at Bembridge Boat Storage for internal / external storage, shrink wrapping, valet services and Winter maintenance.
Visitors over the Winter can book in advance on-line for £15 (up to 8.5m) and £20 (up to 12.5m) per night inc power. Visit for a short stay (over 1 tide) and it’s only £7 - perfect for a cosy fireside lunch at one of our local restaurants, cafes or pubs!
For Facebook followers we are continuing our monthly Draw to win a night's FREE visitor berth during 2017 ....
Jazz on the Quay in June was a great success and will be back next year on Saturday 10th June. Our Bembridge Harbour Family Fun Weekend in July was a wonderful event - have a look at the gallery to get a flavour .... dates for next year - 28th to 30th July.
This year we raised over £2,500 for our nominated charity - Ryde Inshore Rescue - an Independent Lifeboat service relying solely on donations for their £30,000 annual running costs. We're delighted to have been able to support them.
Ralvins Street Food have shut for the Winter but will reopen in time for the May Bank Holiday serving up their delicious coffee and with some exciting new additions to their menu ...
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 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 ...
