Rebuild of Bristol Yacht Club complete Following 2018 Fire
Members of the Bristol Yacht Club were shocked when a fire consumed most of their clubhouse on October 21, 2018. The club has been rebuilt over the last two years and was rededicated on February 16, 2020. The club members have been optimistic throughout the whole process and they are relieved to have their clubhouse back. The new additions to the club have been well received and the members are looking forward to enjoying the updates.

About Bristol Yacht Club:
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." Through the 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.
