Our Purpose

The Blackwater Joint Racing Committee promotes and coordinates joint club racing on the Blackwater Estuary.

Our Main series is the 9 race Cruiser Racing Series for local handicapped and IRC rated boats.

The BJRC fleet of cruisers comprises of boats ranging from under 20 foot through to 40 footers. Many of the fleet are lifting or shallow keel boats as required of their upriver moorings, but there are also boats with 2 metre plus drafts.

We also encourage bilge and twin keel boats to join us for a fun day out on the river, and so that we can cater for this wide range of boats and crew abilities we score our main series using a handicap system so that everyone can potentially feature in the results. Our local handicap system allows crews to compare their sailing performance with others in the fleet.

For those racers that favour seeing their performance scored using the IRC rating system, all boats with a valid rating certificate will be scored on a separate IRC results sheet

Come and join us!
