Keeping in touch with everyone is not easy. We all have our preferences on how we like to be contacted. Here is what we are doing to spread the word.

Where are we? - Well pretty near the sea!

The club is situated on the beach at Uphill, a scenic historic village about two miles along the undefined sea front from Weston Super Mare (51° 19'.25 N 002° 59'.5 W). Uphill is a small village on the south side of Weston Bay, which extends between Brean Down to the south, Birnbeck Island and the old pier to the north.

This area of the Bristol Channel is a popular tourist area, with all kinds of water sports held nearer the shore. Uphill has a long history of prehistoric settlements, piracy, sea trading and in the last century, quarrying.

During the summer, visitors come to Uphill to enjoy the beach or a walk on the Mendip Way. On the hill behind the village is the ancient church of St. Nicholas which is still in use - and the remains of the old windmill which can be seen from Weston beach. There are two attractive old pubs in the village within easy walking distance of the beach. These are The Ship and The Dolphin.

The Club opens every Friday evening and visitors are welcome. For more information contact the President, Mr Bob Godbold. Also - see the Key Club Contacts page for more.

General Facilities

The clubhouse has a fully licenced bar and comfortable social room, toilets / showers / changing facilities, a kitchen and a 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 across the bay, creating some spectacular views.

Visitors are always welcome to join the members on Friday night or after racing on Sundays.

Full members of the Club can apply for a license to make use of a section of the River Axe for mooring their boats. The annual fee for each license was £75 at the time of writing.

The Crown Estate has allocated sufficient space on the river for approximately 100 mooring slots to be managed by the Club.

Members are allocated slots by the Moorings Sub-committee, at which point they are said to be the 'license holder' for that slot. It is then up to the license holder to provide the mooring ground tackle, keep it properly maintained, and maintain the license payments.

The club does not run a formal system of work rotas. Instead it relies on volunteer effort from the members to get things done.
