In May, Pat Jenson and Les Willis in Seathrift, and Paul Turner in Arcadia, set off to find the Azores. They made a damned fine attempt, with Paul completing the trip in spite of several storms, unfavourable winds and doing the whole trip single-handed.
Here's the story of Seathrift's voyage...

Please note that the front door security code has changed. (The old combination literally wore out.)
Members should check with 'the committee' to get the new code.
Welcome to the website of Weston's best kept secret - the Weston Bay Yacht Club.
Founded back in 1934, the club aims to serve all Weston Bay's wind and water users, be that as a sailor, windsurfer, canoeist, land sailor, jet skier, kite flyer or whatever it is you want to do. We also have a social section for those who prefer the indoors!
We have changing rooms with hot showers, as well as our bar and lounge and fully equipped kitchen - or galley if you prefer.
We offer very cost effective mooring space along the River Axe for approximately 100 yachts. We don't think there can be many places to operate a boat from in the UK that are as cheap as our facilities. We also have a training room for holding our RYA approved courses.
We really hope you'll find a home for yourself as well as your boat at our club - we're looking forward to meeting you! You are most welcome to visit us on any Friday night to come and sample our bar, meet the inmates, and have a chat with us about the club.
Meanwhile, please feel free to browse our site to find about the club, as well as useful information about the local water conditions.
