Background of Organisation

Previously known as the Bristol Channel Yachting Conference, the association was formed in 1951. It succeeded an informal association of local clubs, initiated some 15 years earlier by the first Honorary Chairman of the Association, N. C Hockley. Meetings had taken place annually - with a break during the war years - at which Regatta and inter-club racing dates had been arranged, and matters of general interest discussed. Association membership includes over twenty Cruising, Sailing and Yacht Clubs based along both coasts of the Bristol Channel and Severn Estuary, and some Clubs based up rivers and on lakes and reservoirs in the general area.

Organisational Objectives

The Bristol Channel Yachting Association is by its constitution well placed to consult with any group or authority on the general needs and aspirations of those who sail, race and cruise for pleasure around the Bristol Channel.
