How To Join

The purpose of the Washington Outboard Club is to promote water safety and good sportsmanship; to defend all boat owners against discriminatory legislation and burdensome taxation; to prevent the pollution of neighboring recreational waters; to stimulate a greater interest in boating among all citizens in the areas served by the Club; to create and develop good fellowship among local outdoor enthusiasts; to provide a medium of boating information exchange; to develop and own or lease property for the Club; and to do all other things that will tend to serve the needs of boat owners, fishermen, water skiers, and all water sport enthusiasts.


The Washington Outboard Club is a member-oriented fishing club that resides in the Port of Sacramento.  Membership is limited to 600 members.


Each June, new members are brought into the club to maintain maximum membership at 600.  Membership in the WOC is open to boat owners age 18 and over with a boat not greater than 21 feet in length, and not greater than 3,500 lbs in weight.  You MUST own a boat and a tow vehicle.  Your name MUST be on the registration papers.


 Hours of access to the Port are 5am to 10pm.


TO APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP, you must complete an application at one of our meetings.  Open meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, at 7pm, at the VFW Hall located at 905 Drever St., West Sacramento.

 

You are invited to attend and if you would like to be put on the waiting list, you may get the appropriate application at that time.  You must complete the application at the meeting and return it to the Secretary of the WOC.


APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE MAILED, NOR ACCEPTED BY MAIL.


At this time, the waiting period for membership is
