Motor Boating from the Axe
AYC members have a wide range of powered craft that are used for boating, fishing, diving, & waterski-ing in Lyme Bay and further afield. Some motor boats are moored on the pontoons during the season, whilst others use the slipway for launch and retrieval.
Fishing in Lyme Bay
Lyme Bay offers a variety of fishing opportunities for the boat angler. Plaice and mackerel can be caught within several hundred yards of the beach. Black bream, cod, pollack, conger eels, dogfish and huss inhabit the reefs whilst the many wrecks offshore offer excellent fishing for bass, pollack and cod. Members can access a list of Fishing Marks.
Each year the Club offers a prize for the best fish caught and also the most unusual fish caught. Please let RC Activities Afloat know of any notable fish or catches by emailing email@example.com
Members with motor boats are frequent visitors to other ports along the south coast. Breakfast in Lyme Regis or lunch in West Bay are popular short trips. Some venture further afield making trips to Brixham, Dartmouth, across the channel to Alderney or westward to the Scilly Isles, often meeting up with cruiser sailors at their destination. Coastal Cruising.
At the Annual Prize Giving, trophies are awarded for the longest voyage completed by a motor boater in a two week period and the greatest cumulative distance achieved throughout the season.
