This church 'on the hill' has been here since 1717.  It replaced the 'old church' down on St Helens Duver which was washed away by storms after the river had changed course and land claimed by the sea.  The bricked up tower remains and has been used as a sea mark for centuries.

Mostly rebuilt in the 1800s the building still retains some interesting old gravestones set into the floor, some fascinating memorials and hatchments and the George I coat of arms.

A recent addition, at the far end of the extensive churchyard, is a grass path Labryrinth watched over by a solitary oak tree - a wonderful aid to prayer/reflection/or just 'slowing down'

The doors to IWSC were first opened in the Whitsun of 1936, providing tennis, badminton, squash courts – which at the time were claimed to be among the finest in the country – and a lounge serving Worthington and Whitbread draught beers from the wood, Brickwoods mild and a wide range of spirits. Seaview in the late ‘30s was considered an alternative to Le Touquet and attracted international visitors during the season. The vehicle ferry fare from Portsmouth to Ryde cost one shilling (5 pence) and the passenger fare from Southsea to Seaview Pier just 6d (2 1/2 pence).

In September 1998 Anne and Alan Blackburn became aware of this hidden gem and, although it had sadly lost much of its original sparkle, felt sheer excitement at the potential unfolding before them.

During the next two years a programme of refurbishment and improvement was implemented. Anne and Alan complimented the original courts with the addition of an air-conditioned gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, steam room and saunas. The latest ‘Olympus’ all weather service was laid to the tennis court and floodlighting installed to provide tennis facilities into the late or dark winter evenings.

In August 2000 members new and existing were able to take advantage of the enhanced facilities at IWSC. Since August 2000 facilities at IWSC have been enhanced; this website can only provide a flavour of the very unique Isle of Wight Sports Club and you are recommended to make a personal visit where a warm welcome awaits you.

The Sea View Yacht Club was established in 1893 and sailing has taken place off our clubhouse ever since.

We are an unusual club in that we own a fleet of keel boats known as Mermaids . The fleet is available to charter and throughout the summer the boats are sailed regularly – often three times a day, every day. Members also sail the boats both in the evenings midweek and over the weekends.

We are also the home to a fleet of clinker built dinghies. These are called Seaview One Designsor SVODs and the fleet was founded in 1931. The fleet is now just under 200 in number and is the largest one-design fleet on the South coast.

We also have an active Handicap, Optimist and Cruiser class.

More information can be obtained from the Club Secretary, Jamie Nimmo, on 01983 613268.
