Join the Club
Welcome to the Axe Yacht Club, a vibrant club located at Axmouth Harbour, East Devon.
The club has a membership of ~800 engaged in a wide range of activities including dinghy sailing, cruiser sailing and motor boating/angling. The club has just over 100 pontoon moorings, allocated from a waiting list, and can accommodate a substantial number of boats for launch and retrieve from a slip located in the harbour. Dinghy sailing can be enjoyed on the sea with beach launched boats and on the river Axe when tides allow. The club has an active cadet section with regular activities throughout the year.
The Activities Afloat team organise a comprehensive programme of dinghy and cruiser races, with the motor boat section organising fishing competitions. All of this is supported by a range of social activities in the excellent club house located on the beach.
The club is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association and is RYA approved to provide a range of shore based and on water courses. Courses are dependant on numbers enrolling and instructor availability.
Members of the club are involved in all aspects of the running of the club and giving time to the club is a requirement of membership. Volunteering is also a great way to meet other members of the club.
The club is well equipped with a boat lift, member's workshop, outboard motor store, support boats and dinghies for use during organised sessions. Power is available in the yard to enable boat maintenance to be carried out as required.
