We live only about 30 minutes away, so it is convenient. We usually launch at Welch Creek Park. When my son was sailing up there about 2 years ago, he ran aground. His buddy jumped in the water without any shoes on to push the boat off. Right onto some broken glass and cut his foot. The people of Somerville have their own rescue group. Before I could get there they had 3 boats in the water, a deputy sheriff, game warden and the EMS. A bit of overkill for a kid needing just 4 stitches! I like going to Somerville during the week no crowds.
Most times there is enough wind, though Bill and I did get out March 08 and the wind died. That was okay though it was such a pretty day and mid 70s temp....to me the boat is the destination when you go sailing. go have fun...take food and a cooler....We generally put in at Welch Creek Park...I have never cared for Overlook park Does "bc" stand for Bryan/CS?

Somerville is a nice lake to sail on. I've had nothing but great winds every time I've taken my Hobie 16 out there.
The Texas A&M Sailing Club is seeking donations in the form of used boats, spare parts, tools and money to ensure the future of our club. We also have several sail worthy boats for sail and offer free lessons to anyone interested in purchasing one of our boats. Feel free to email me or visit our website!
