The North Florida Cruising Club sponsors four river races and five ocean races. Notable among these are the area’s first women’s regatta, and the First Coast Offshore Challenge (FCOC), the only premiere ocean racing series in North Florida. Race participants not only earn awards (or brag-flags, as we like to call them) for these individual races, but they also are eligible for additional awards for their participation in the First Coast Sailing Association Spring, Ocean, and Fall Racing Series.

The women’s regatta, now known as the “Hands on-the-Helm Regatta ” is a successful charity regatta benefiting Hubbard House, a Jacksonville-based battered women’s shelter.
