Welcome to Bembridge Angling Club

    Welcome to Bembridge Angling Club
♦Our first recorded competition was in 1963. 
Application forms for this years boat lifts are available in the club house.
20th Jan to 3rd March to 31st March to final return 28th April
22-12-17: EU is due to receive amended Bass data from ICES around mid 2018 & there is an outside chance that RSA restrictions could revert to a 1 fish bag limit as a result.
14-12-17: Anglers not allowed to retain any Bass at all in 2018.
See (click on) :  Bass Disaster
Sorry folks but the weather has finally defeated us in the last of our several attempts to hold our open Cod comp on Saturday 30th December. With no further suitable dates available soon & a very diminished chance of good catches, it has been decided to abandon any further attempts to hold it this season. Consideration will be given to the possibility of running an alternative replacement open competition (perhaps for Bream) during the first half of 2018.
No advance entries have been collected from tackle shops so if anyone has paid an advance entry fee then please obtain your refund from the tackle shop.
Newsletters, membership renewal forms & where applicable, mooring renewal forms were sent on   5-10-17  to all registered members by way of surface post. None have been sent electronically. A new newsletter plus competition list is due to be sent out mid January & will revert to being sent according to members expressed preferences.
At the September meeting, the committee was very displeased at the lack of support for competitions shown by some skippers recently & is considering options available to it to address this. Skippers are reminded that a condition of being allowed a club mooring is participation in club activities. A copy of our historic club rules from the club archives has been added to the "About Us" page confirming that this is a long standing requirement.
Members email addresses.
Our membership secretary has advised that a number of email addresses he has on file for members have returned “undeliverable” error messages when he has mass circulated email communications to those members who have elected to receive electronic communications. Either the email details were supplied incorrect or the affected members have subsequently changed email address. Any member not having received any electronic communication from the club, such as the email “BAC- special competition next Saturday” sent on 11th May 2017, should advise us of their current email address. Also any member having a conversation with another member claiming not to have received such communication is asked to advise that member of the issue & advise them to get in touch with the club. Thank you.
We would welcome applications for one of our moorings. See notice Board 
We would also welcome applications from non-boat owning anglers wishing to become members.
 More details on Notice Board page.

  Members personal Information:

The club reserves the right to pass address and phone number details of all its mooring holders to the harbour company for the purposes of both their safety procedures & administration of harbour dues. The harbour company has given assurances that they will not pass this information on & will only use it as above.



Boat angling is a hazardous activity. Individuals must accept that, by engaging in active water sports such as boat angling, their physical safety may be endangered. Sea angling currently accounts for the second highest mortality rate among sea users.

Anyone intending to participate in, or become involved with, boat angling organised by BAC – either as a skipper, crew or otherwise – does so at their own risk and such individuals must recognise the actual and potential risks associated with their involvement, including drowning, hypothermia and other physical injuries resulting from, for instance, falling overboard, penetrating or impact wounds from knives, hooks and weights as well as being bitten by fish.

Participants must acknowledge that it is up to them personally to assess whether any event or activity on the water is too difficult for them or their crew.

Individuals must acknowledge that the safety of their boat and her entire management including insurance is solely their responsibility, and they are satisfied that the boat and the crew are adequate to face the conditions that may arise in the course of a competition.

Entrants into the event must acknowledge that it is solely their responsibility to decide whether or not to start, or to continue, in any competition.

Individuals on signing on to the competition must agree :-

(i) to be bound by the conditions of the Competition Rules of the BAC
(ii) to accept the decisions of the BAC committee and officials nominated by it
(iii) to save harmless and keep indemnified:-
        a. BAC & their sponsors and the Angling Trust and their respective officials, servants and agents
        b. the other boat owners, drivers & crew engaged in the competition
against all actions, claims, costs, expenses and demands in respect of loss of, or damage to, the entrant’s property or the property of his/her drivers & crew whether or not such loss or damage may have been contributed to or occasioned by the negligence of the said persons or bodies, their officials, servants, representatives or agents.  

In addition, all persons entering onto the club premises (compound and club house on North Quay) should be aware of the areas round the quay that have no safety railings and thus pose a safety hazard with respect to the possibility of falling over the edge. Extreme caution should be exercised in these areas and on no account are unsupervised children to be allowed to roam freely in the compound.
