Bembridge Harbour (3) .jpg - SOLD - Looking across Bembridge Harbour towards Redwing Quay and Bembridge Sailing Club. The club was founded in 1886 and it’s current membership is approximately 1,300. Although there is activity throughout the year, it is concentrated over the holiday periods, and July & August as the majority of members live on the mainland. YBoat designer Charles Ernest Nicholson's first design of note was the Redwing class. The Bembridge sailing club met in October 1896 to agree the need for a shallow draughted yacht - to allow for the shoal waters of Bembridge Harbour - which could be sailed single-handed, to replace the expensive half racers. Nicholson designed the yacht in ten days, and by 1898 the fleet consisted of 16 boats.
