The Bembridge Scows are a local class to the area. They are a single handed stable boat with a gaff main sail which suits the conditions found in the area. There are about 40 boats in the club which can be seen parked along the front apron with more based around the harbour. They race with the slow handicap fleet having a Portsmouth Yard Stick number of 1500; however they do have their own prizes and an open championship each year in August. There are also competitions against Yarmouth, Seaview and Bembridge. If you require more information please look at the Sailing Programme or contact Anne Barlow at the Club.
This is in memory of our good friend and fellow Scow sailor who died suddenly in April of 2015. Philip Norris, her partner of 28 years together with her mother, have donated an excellent trophy which will be kept at BHYC.
