On Friday afternoon/evening there will be a Paper Boat Building Workshop for budding designers to create a maritime masterpiece (no age limit in either direction), ready for the Great Bembridge Paper Boat Race on Saturday. A Family Fun Supper will be available from the Duver Cafe (click here for the menu and ordering details), drinks from the Water Horse Box Bar (cash only), and music from Wild Oats available during the evening.
Over the weekend there are family beach games, sandcastle/sculpture building competitions, free taster "Splash" sessions on paddleboards and kayaks courtesy of Tackt-Isle Adventures, a best decorated boat and best dressed overall competition, the RNLI Bembridge Lifeboat will be welcoming visitors, and the crabbing competition is one not to be missed. Dance on the Duver (tickets must be puchased online in advance as the event sells out) takes place on Saturday evening and is followed by a Harbour Fireworks Display.
The Duver Cafe will be open throughout the weekend (0830-1600). For a flavour of the event, see the Gallery of images from 2017.
