Explore Lyme bay or further afield

The Club has an active cruiser fleet. Most craft occupy moorings at the Cobb but some of our members keep their boats out of port. The harbour at Lyme Regis dries at low water which means that the cruisers must have bilge keels or a retractable centre plate.

At the beginning of the current sailing season we have a wide range of cruisers but there are several Sadler 26s, Hunter Medinas, and Hurley 22s. During the winter the boats are brought ashore and most are stored in the Club car/boat park. The harbour is administered by West Dorset District Council who collect the mooring fees but there is currently a waiting list for moorings.

Visiting boats are always made welcome by the Harbour Master and we are pleased to extend the hospitality of the Club to the crews. Showers are available, food, and use of the bar can be had when the Club is open to its members. There are some exposed mooring buoys just outside of the harbour but these are uncomfortable in anything but the most settled weather. The best shelter is found by lying against the harbour wall. The harbour is exposed to winds from the SE to E.

Any enquiries about the cruiser section can be made to the Cruiser Secretary (see Committee)
