Spence Willard: Supporting Island Life

Brading Haven Yacht Club Isle of Wight Youth Sports Awards

Over the past 12 months Spence Willard has increased its sponsorship and support of many local causes, charities and sports

We have supported several yacht and sailing clubs on the Island including Brading Haven Yacht Club, which is a friendly and welcoming family- orientated club with a breadth of local and seasonal members enjoying sailing all year round. As a result of our support, this year BHYC are able to offer VHF radio training to members, using new radio training simulators. We are also excited to be involved in the upcoming August racing series in which some of our staff and their family members will no doubt be taking part.

Being an Island and with arguably more yacht/sailing clubs per square mile than anywhere else in the world, it seems logical for us to fully support this exciting, family-friendly sport.

For the fifth year running Spence Willard will be sponsoring the Royal Solent Yacht Club’s Wednesday Evening Series. Open to cruisers, Folkboats, XODs, YODs and Lasers, the series runs from the end of April to the end of September. Located on the seafront next to Yarmouth Pier, the Club has stunning views over the western Solent and is the perfect place to socialise post-racing with its excellent bar and catering facilities. Spence Willard supplies all the prizes, which are presented at a gala event in October. For further information visit

Yarmouth Sailing Club

Off the water our charitable support has also been channelled towards many other causes including: Mountbatten Hospice Gift Fair, West Wight Marathon, Isle of Wight Youth Sports Awards, The Great Car Pull for the Joe Ellis Trust, The Isle of Wight Literary Festival, Main Sponsor of Towers Gala (raising funds for 7 local charities), Isle of Wight Admiral Nurses.

The Isle of Wight Admiral Nurses support people with dementia

There is also Yarmouth Sailing Club, a friendly, informal and inclusive club next to the swing bridge over the River Yar. For the second consecutive year Spence Willard will be sponsoring the Spence Willard Dinghy Regatta, which will be youth-orientated and will take place during the summer holidays. We will be supplying prizes and donating funds for equipment.

and their families helping them to understand and cope with the changes that can occur with dementia. As Isle of Wight Admiral Nurses is a charitable cause all fundraising remains on the Island and makes the world of difference to local families. Last year events included a Hat Lunch at the Royal London Yacht Club which was full of fun and an array of weird and wonderful hats, as well as a cream tea at Busy Bee garden centre.

A fundraising evening of rum punch, jazz music and a hog roast will be given at Bridgecourt Manor courtyard on the evening of September 1st, do contact Spence Willard for ticket information if you would like to attend.

And last, but by no means least, there is the annual Yarmouth Spence Willard Sandcastle Competition which takes place during carnival week in August. Channel your inner “Grand Design” and see what you can come up with!
