Coopers Blue Water Classic 2016

Coopers Blue Water Classic

Darwin’s Premier Fishing Competition

was held on 28-30 October and was a huge success!

The Darwin Trailer Boat Club is home to the annual Coopers Blue Water Classic and is Darwin’s premier fishing competition.

Being a family event and open to both the Club Members and the general public, all are encouraged to have a go and participate in what has proven to be a fun filled exciting event for the whole family!

The Coopers Blue Water Classic (CBWC) 2016, which was held on 28-30 October, had over 180 contestants and over 70 teams competing into 3 different boating categories:

  • Cat 1: Boats over 6.00m
  • Cat 2: Boats between 5.500m to 5.999m
  • Cat 3: Boats under 5.499m

The weather was perfect and the fishing was great. A lot of families and kids participated. It was the 15th running of the Classic and we think it was one of the best we have ever run. Altogether 1.5 ton of fish was donated to Foodbank NT and will be served on the table of those in need and less fortunate.

This fishing competition is a unique experience with great prizes and the best time for memories to be made on and off the water when we all gathered for the Award & Presentation Dinner night on 5 November where the final results were made public and the winners presented with their bounty.

Images of the Weigh-In Day & Award & Presentation Dinner Night will be available soon on this website.

Please find here below an overview of the final score:
