The club has 35 swing moorings for cruisers up to 30ft and on land winter storage facilities in the club grounds; we also have an area to store tenders securely.

Launching and recovery for any cruiser and trailer combination which is less than 2 tonnes is offered using the clubs capstan to members on appointed days in the year.

Larger yachts can be launched and recovered via the Blackwater Marina and brought round by road to be stored over winter in the club grounds.

The Blackwater estuary is ideal for day, weekend or week sailing with many creeks and tributaries of the river to explore and many marinas with in a days sail of the club.

For the more adventurous the North Sea is on the doorstep with Holland, Belgium & the French coast just over the horizon.

For new cruiser sailors, the club offers Sailing in company Trips with our experienced cruiser members and for the more experienced sailor who would like to race their cruisers the Blackwater holds the BJRC racing series for cruisers.
