Independent memberships are intended for experienced rowers 18 years of age or older who do not wish to utilize WRC coaching.  It is expected that rowers have their own boats, but requests can be made to use WRC boats.  Members wanting to make use of club boats must pay a boat usage fee.

Boat availability, water conditions and member skill will be considered when evaluating boat requests. Programs will always have priority for boat usage.  Please note that those under 18 are not allowed to use the facilities unsupervised.

Independent Members can select between three levels of membership:

  • Private Boat Owners: For rowers who only intend on rowing their own private boats (boat storage fees not included)
  • Sport Membership: For rowers who would like access to club boats but do not intend on competing at a sanctioned regatta
  • Competitive Membership: For rowers who would like access to club boats and are intending on competing at sanctioned regattas.  This membership level includes RCA’s Competitive Rower Fee which is required for insurance coverage to participate in sanctioned regattas.

* Independent members interested in racing for WRC at regattas should contact the Club Manager prior to event registration.  Regatta costs, including entry fees, trailering, and accommodations are the responsibility of the participants. Regatta fees are due prior to entry to any event.*
