Please follow along on facebook, twitter and also our website. The Fort Worth Boat Club (FWBC) is located on the shores of beautiful Eagle Mountain Lake, a 9,200-acre recreational lake in North Texas. Boasting a large harbor with sailboat slips, covered boathouses and full harbor services, the FWBC features 14 acres of amenities including a full-service restaurant and bar, plus a pool and tennis court. One of the oldest yacht clubs in Texas, the FWBC was established in 1929 by a group of businessmen who simply wanted to sail. Today the club is still dedicated to the promotion of sailing and recreational boating. Many members participate in national and international regattas annually. The Cornelius Shields Sr. Trophy This trophy is awarded by the Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Association to the winner of the ICSA Sloop National Championship. The Sloop Championship was inaugurated in 1972 with the first championship held at the University of California at Irvine in Shields class sloops. To commemorate that event the PCIYRA donated the Cornelius Shields Trophy. The trophy was named in honor of Mr. Shields of Larchmont, New York, who was one of the most well known sailors of his time. An early benefactor of college sailing, Shields donated more than eighty Shields class sloops to colleges through out the United States and was named to the ICSA Hall of Fame in its initial year. In 2010 this event was changed to be a Match Racing event.
