Cabot Cruising Club has been in existence for 70 years. Our clubhouse, the John Sebastian was purchased 50 years ago and has been moored in Bathurst Basin ever since. History John Sebastian Light Vessel 55 (pdf)
Members and guests are welcome aboard the John Sebastian on Thursday and Saturday evenings. We hold our ‘club night’ every Thursday – this is the best time to visit if you wish to enquire about membership and moorings.
The John Sebastian, based on Commercial Road near the General Hospital, is generally open from 7.30pm onwards and all are welcome. On a Thursday night last entry is 10pm as the bar closes at 11pm. On a Saturday night last entry is 11pm. We have a fully stocked bar selling drinks and snacks at very reasonable prices.
If visiting for the first time please make yourself known to any of the club officials who will do their utmost to make you welcome and introduce you to other members.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO OWN A BOAT TO BE A MEMBER OF CABOT CRUISING CLUB…
…but there are advantages to being a member of this fabulous boating club in the heart of Bristol:
- We meet on the John Sebastian on Thursdays and Saturdays from about 7.30pm.
- We have social events going on, especially on a Saturday evening.
- We have a well stocked bar with special prices for club members
- If you have a special event – as a club member you can hire the John Sebastian.
Interested? Why not come along on either a Thursday or Saturday night and see for yourself what a fabulous venue we have, and why not have a chat with Jane Savill, our Membership Secretary, who would be happy to guide you through the process.
We look forward to meeting you aboard the John Sebastian.
