    We are a small club established to promote safety at sea and small boat angling. We have approaching 200 members with over 100 boats. Members keep their boats on trailers, swinging moorings and pontoon berths. Boat sizes range from small outboard driven dinghies and kayaks up to yachts and motor cruisers in excess of 35', all are welcome. The club aims to cater for the needs of sea anglers fishing from boats within Club waters that extend from St Catherine's Point in the East to Portland Bill in the West.

    We hold regular club meetings, competitions, social events and an annual open boat competition, which this year will take place on Saturday 27th June. Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at the Oakdale Conservative Club, 92 Darbys Lane, Poole, BH15 3EU. Get map

    We also organise for our members occasional courses. Some courses recently attended by our members are RYA Powerboat level 2, RYA first aid, sea survival and VHF.

    PBSBAC Raises £1300 for Heroes on the Water

    Our chosen club charity for 2017 was “Heroes on the Water”. At our Christmas meeting Martin Hurst, a trustee from HoW, gave a short presentation on what he and other volunteers at the charity have been involved with throughout the year. He had driven up from Wales so we could present him with funds the club had collected throughout 2017. He had commitments the next day so had to return straight after the meeting, there’s dedication for you! On the night our members dug deep and added to donations already collected, giving a final figure of £1,290.99 - a real bonus to HOW so well done and a big thank you to all who gave either their time or monies over the course of the year.

    Martin Hurst from Heroes on the water said “A huge thanks to everyone at the club who were responsible for raising the fantastic amount of nearly £1300. I enjoyed attending your meeting although next time I’m not sure I’ll travel down and back in a day. Thanks also to the gentlemen who gave me two rods as I left, very much appreciated"
