The BSBMA was founded in 1962 with the object of encouraging enthusiasts to race, care for, and preserve, the remaining barges for as long as possible. The expenses of organising the Barge Match are largely defrayed by members' subscriptions of £10.00 per annum - joint membership, £8.00 per annum - single membership. Membership of the Blackwater Sailing Barge Match Association entitles members to join in any social activity arranged and attend the Annual Film show. A newsletter 'The Pennant' is sent regularly to all members. DVDs of the annual Blackwater Barge Match can be purchased from our shop.
