Sailing Barge Matches.
BLACKWATER BARGE MATCH
Blackwater Sailing Barge Match Association
There are a number of Courses available
for the Match.
The Officer of the Day will decide upon which is to
be sailed on the morning of the Match. This decision
is dependent on weather conditions and many other factors.
The longest course takes the barges round the Wallet
Spitway Buoy (off Clacton).
The Outer Mark, where barges are judged for one of the
trophies, will be the Inner Bench Head Buoy.
