Become a Member

If you are interested in joining our friendly, relaxed, hands-on Club close to the Bristol Channel you can write to us via the contact form.

Feel free to come on down the St Pierre Pill, have a look at the moorings and facilities and enjoy the peaceful rural setting.

Or come to one of our Club Meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at the Mathern Athletic Club.

We do operate a waiting list for anyone willing to wait for a mooring coming free.

Entry on to the list will be subject to the vessel’s owner becoming a Club Member (fee £28) and the compatibility of the vessel with the available mooring (32ft Max LOA).

At this present time we have a limited number of free moorings suitable for bilge keelers in St Pierre Pill.

We are planning to lay a limited number of moorings that will be suitable for small fin and long keel boats.

Membership & Mooring Fees

The annual fees for all this, are currently:

Membership £28

Moorings Standing charge of £25 plus £2 per foot LOA (monohulls).

There is an extra annual charge of £100 per annum levied on any moorings holder who does not complete at least 10 hours on work parties or other club duties.

We organise the occasional work party whenever there are maintenance or improvement jobs to be done and all members are encouraged to join in, if they can.

The most important of these work parties is the annual checking of all the mooring chains; this is normally done in the spring, weather permitting.

Far from being a chore these work parties are usually great fun, especially when the commodore accidentally falls into the water (or was he pushed?).

However members are responsible for their own risers and are expected to do their share of keeping and improving the club property.

These are among the cheapest mooring fees to be found anywhere in the Bristol Channel area.

Our annual fees are, at present less than the monthly cost of keeping your boat in the average marina.

There is no extra charge for the beauty and seclusion of the surroundings.
