About our club
click to read about our club
The Club offers a wide range of sailing and boating opportunities from fleet racing by sailboat class along a predetermined course; to the lone sailor enjoying the sport of sailing on beautiful White Rock Lake. Since the creation of the lake in 1911, it has been the home to numerous Regattas, boating competitions and other outdoor activities. White Rock Lake remains the perfect venue for all types of non-power boating activities. The only motor on boats allowed on the lake are trolling motors that are less than 10.5 hp. The size of the lake (2 x 3/4 miles) restricts boating activity primarily to use by sailboats, kayaks, canoes and crewing.
Although White Rock Lake remains small by comparison, this 1,015 acre urban lake can be a relatively demanding lake to sail. Under the proper weather conditions even the most experienced sailor will be challenged by this lake. By way of contrast, on the perfect day, White Rock Lake remains a place of beauty, solace and tranquility as an ideal escape from the worldly demands of the big city that rises boldly on the distant horizon.
White Rock Boat Club offers our members safe and affordable access to the lake and its environs. In addition, the Club’s design helps to protect the members’ boats, boating gear and privacy. The low cost of membership is maintained at WRBC as all members contribute to the club’s maintenance. We encourage our members and their families to share in the kind of fun and adventure that comes from sailing, kayaking and canoeing. The beauty of White Rock Lake Park and its close proximity to our homes and offices creates a neighborhood feel that other larger, more crowded lakes cannot offer.
