Welcome to the Axe Yacht Club

The Club was formed in 1936 as the Seaton Sailing & Motor Boat Club. It was renamed Axe Yacht Club shortly after WWII. 80 Years later the Club has over 700 members, around 120 marina-style berths & a large modern clubhouse. Yacht, in its correct sense, is a vessel propelled by sail or motor, used exclusively for pleasure. Whether your interest is sailing a dinghy, a day boat or a cruiser, racing or just pottering, angling, power-boating, scuba diving or water ski-ing, the Club's objective is to promote & facilitate a range of water sports, whilst enjoying & preserving the beautiful Axmouth Harbour. Activities on the water are supported by a full programme of social events.
