Founded in 1988, the Bay Area Rowing Club of Houston, BARC, encourages rowers of all skill levels and ages to learn and grow the sport of rowing. Since its inception, BARC has grown from a small cadre of dedicated rowers to an organized, non-profit club with over 80 members, a fleet of rowing shells composed of singles, doubles, quads, fours, and eights, and a boathouse located on Mud Lake in Clear Lake Park. BARC offers offer both sweep and sculling classes, as well as frequent, inexpensive 'Try It, You'll Like it' sessions for those new to rowing. BARC is operated as a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit rowing club in the greater Clear Lake Area of Houston, TX and is a member of USRowing. Contact us today!
