Hamburg Cove Yacht Club is dedicated to bringing together people who have a love of boating and who enjoy sharing their boating experiences with each other through a variety of activities both on and off the water. An equally important part of the Club’s culture is dependence on the active stewardship and volunteerism of its members not only to keep the Club in “Bristol Fashion”, but to encourage growing camaraderie and friendship among the membership. Applicants for membership in HCYC must therefore demonstrate their commitment to active boating, a willingness to participate and contribute time to Club activities, and the personal and interpersonal attributes that are consistent with these principles.
