Seaview Yacht Club

Owing to the rapid popularity gained by the Bembridge Sailing Club, it was decided to form a similar club at Seaview. A meeting of those interested in the sport was held in 1889, and resulted in the founding of the Seaview Yacht Club, whioh had its first accommodation in the then newly-opened Seaview Hotel close to the pier. The first Commodore was the Duke of Leeds, who has held the office ever since.
