Washington Outboard  Club

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.

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.

Commodore Gene has negotiated the use of the parking lot across the street at the funeral parlor during meetings.  The parking lot is now available for club use during meetings.

 

Gene has seen to it that a new (very expensive) bulb has been installed on the light pole by the ramp.  A new LED light which will be mounted lower on the pole will be installed soon.  This will help illuminate the area.

At this time, the waiting period for membership is about 5 years.

 

 

The UC Davis Rowing Club will have high use days on March 14, 15, 16 & the 29th.  Our ramp is open to our club members during these days but parking may be a problem.  Please be careful and curious with all the extra boats in the water.
