The Club's activities afloat are supported by a full programme of social events. The Social Committee is chaired by a Rear Commodore who is a Club Officer elected at the AGM each year.
The Bar is open every Friday evening and Sunday lunchtime throughout the year. It is also open for the programmed social functions. During the season, it is usually open on Saturday evenings and sometimes opens on other days for post-race drinks or simply to allow members to enjoy the evening sunshine with a beer on the decking overlooking the bay. Sunday lunch is prepared by volunteers every weekend from April to October.
Dinners are held in the Ward Room at the start & end of the season - Fitting Out Party in March/April and Laying Up Supper in October. The Annual Prize-Giving event is held in November.
Other major events include the Axe Regatta and the Club Charity weekend - activities on the water are accompanied by a programme of BBQ's, buffets, musical entertainment and fund raising activities.
There are a variety of other events in the programme including Bangers & Mash night, 'Brain of the Axe' Quiz and a Halloween party. Christmas Lunch is also a popular event. Details of social events are advertised on the website & in the Knot newsletter.
Friday night talks given by a range of speakers are held monthly through the winter months, and these are often accompanied by simple meals Winter Talks Programme 2018-19.
We rely on volunteers to help with making tea & coffee, baking cakes, cooking Sunday lunch, helping with fund-raising events, running BBQ's and organising a multitude of other functions throughout the year - PLEASE TRY & GET INVOLVED!
