Clubhouse and Facilities
The clubhouse has a fully licenced bar and comfortable social room, toilets/changing facilities, a kitchen and small storage area. It is a peaceful friendly place to have a drink, away from the buzz of the town and in summer the sun sets accross the bay, creating some spectacular views.
Nearby there is a pontoon for launching and a small tender slipway.These are reserved for members only and provide easy access to the river's moorings.
Mooring on the Axe:
The first things to note is that the majority of the river comes under the control of the club, a licence is required for each mooring, every licence holder is a club member and every boat must have at least third party insurance.
A Typical Mooring:
A visitor can tie up to the pontoon at Uphill Pier but access is limited to about 2 hours either side of high water. The pier is covered by tides over 11.5 meters and with tides up to 13 metres this must be born in mind and boats must not be left unattended.
For a longer stay, visit the club on a Friday night or contact the commodore and hopefully we can find a spare mooring to use but this will be subject to a private agreement between the licence holder and boat owner.
The owner will be responsible for ensuring the mooring is suitable for the boat and advising the club of insurance details. There are occasionally moorings for sale or boats sold with moorings but it always pays to get advice from the club before committing yourself.
