'Push The Boat Out' 2019 - Sat 25th May. Axe Yacht Club's Open Day.

As in previous years, we are looking for volunteers to welcome visitors to AYC on our Open Day. Could you help by giving a guided tour, making coffee/tea and serving cakes, or showing visitors your boat and enthusing about sailing or motor boating from the Axe? Hopefully the weather will allow some visitors to get afloat for a taster sail (cruisers & dinghies). If you can help in any way please email info@axeyachtclub.co.uk . More »
