Welcome to Bristol Yacht Club

Welcome to the Bristol Yacht Club

Following a devastating 2018 fire, we celebrated the rebuilding of our Clubhouse with a February 16, 2020 Rededication. Link here for a photo gallery. Link here to the story of our rebuild in a video generously compiled by US Sailing. 

ABOUT US

A Bristol Institution

Founded in 1877 by a group of Brown University students "for the purpose of mutual interests and the practicing of rowing on our harbor, the principal object of the club being however to have a good time," Bristol Yacht Club has been having a good time ever since!

 

We've updated this mission since then to "encourage and promote yachting, seamanship, aquatic sports and social activities among our members." Our Club is driven through the volunteerism of our membership, which makes possible our many social activities, family events, friendly yet competitive racing, Clubhouse and waterfront amenities, member cruises, and instructional classes. It's obvious to anyone who visits the Club we take our mission seriously.
