Meet the Club Committee 2023


Steve Hanks



Hi, I am Steve and Chairman of the Bexhill Sea Angling Club.


Whether you're a keen beach angler, a boat angler, or just curious about fishing, we'd love to have you as part of our club. Our members are always happy to chat with existing, new and potential members. So what are you waiting for?


Barry Bertin

President & Treasurer

I am Barry Bertin and have been a member of the Bexhill Sea Angling Club for 50 years during which time I have been on the Committee for 42 years. Currently I hold the positions of Treasurer, Fish Recorder and Trophy Custodian and am honoured to have been voted into the position of President of the Club, a position that I have held for the past 17 years. My passion is boat angling and I kept my boats on the beach at Bexhill for 30 years until I broke my Achilles tendon. After that I moored my last two boats at Sovereign Harbour where my latest boat is moored and I currently fish from.


Allan Stanford

Club Secretary

Hello, my name is Allan Stanford. I was a junior member of BSAC back in the early 70s and after a long absence, I came back to the club around 20 years ago. I am proud to say the I have served on the committee for much of that time and have been the honorary secretary for the last 8 years. I have an interest in both boat and beach angling. Please contact me at any time if you have questions or club related problems.
