Bewl Sailing Association Ltd


About Us

Bewl Sailing Association (BSA) represents the sailing interests of racers and cruisers at Bewl Water, the largest inland water in the South East, set in beautiful countryside on the Kent / Sussex borders. We welcome everyone who is interested in sailing, whatever their age, ability or experience.

All classes of boat are warmly invited to join us for racing on Sunday mornings. With seasoned sailors on hand to give advice on rigging and racing techniques, we are particularly keen to encourage families and youth sailors.

The "Mariners of Bewl" sail on Saturday mornings in craft which are specially adapted for the physically disabled, while the board sailors favour Saturday afternoons. The "Midweekers" group is ideal for those who would just like a relaxed sail on Wednesday afternoons.

In addition to regular Sunday racing, there is a full programme of events throughout the year. The annual Bewl Blaster Open in early March is followed by the Flying Fifteen Open in April. Summer events include a sailing picnic, the RYA-sponsored Push the Boat Out taster day, and the fundraising Bart's Bash. Then there is the Wanderer Inland Championship, the Laser Open and the London Windsurfing Association Open. The sailing year ends with the popular Boxing Day Bottle.

As a formal entity, Bewl Sailing Association Ltd has insurance indemnity and is affiliated to the RYA. This is covered by our modest annual subscription of just £20.  

You can find us at Bewlbridge Lane, Lamberhurst, Kent, TN3 8JH.
