The Spanish Point Boat Club was formed in 1943 by thirteen men; Carl Simmons, Donald Simmons (Carl’s brother), Arthur Moniz (fisherman), Geoffrey Wilson, Jimmy “Jack” Lemon (Royal Navy), William Hassell (Home Paint), Sylvester “Sylvie” Barnes, Jimmy Hitchcock, Tony Soares (Boat Builder), Henry DeSilva (Fisherman), Reggie Cabral, Wilbur Franklin and Dick Harris.
In a very short time the membership grew and so did the fleet. At this time it was decided to look for a Club House. Mr Leyland Simmons (better known as Pop Simmons) offered the old wooden building known as the Bungalow. This was accepted in 1944, but a great deal of repair work was needed, with the help of the members it soon started to look like areal Club House. After moving to this new location, the membership and fleet continued to grow. Boasting a fleet of 14 boats with hardly any two alike in design, and ranging from 12 to 22 feet.
As the interest in the sailing fleet grew, some of the members purchased snipes from members of the Sandy’s Boat Club and Southampton Boat Club, while others decided to build their own boats at the Bungalow under the expert guidance of Kenneth Simmons Sr. and Tony Soares.
Again the Club membership grew and it was decided to look for a larger and more adequate premises. A decision was made to rent an old cottage at the end of Spanish Point road. The members were soon busy transforming this old cottage into a clubhouse containing; a bar, card room, dart room, and lounge. The bar was built by Tony Soares to resemble the hull and deck of a Snipe. Mr Llew Gibbons officially opened
the Club on the 7th June 1951. The Club was later incorporated on the 5th July 1955.
1956 was a big year for our Club and Bermuda. The SPBC along with the St George’s Dinghy & Sports Club and the Snipe Association, were given permission by SCIRA (Snipe Class International Racing Association) to hold the Western Hemisphere Snipe Championship here in Bermuda. To
top off the year, Bermuda took first place with skipper Eugene “Penny” Simmons and crew John Shirley. This was the icing on the cake after they won the SPBC Championship and the Bermuda National Championship.
The Club as you see it today was constructed in 1968 with Albert “Brown” Tatem as Commodore, and we proudly continue the seafaring traditions of those who came before us to this day!
