Plans were made for "a reading room, reception hall, ballroom, gymnasium and accommodation for all racing boats, canoes and training quarters for the crews." The Provincial Construction Company won the contract with a bid of $13,000. The final cost was closer to $15,000 of which nearly $10,000 was raised through the sale of $100 Life memberships. The new clubhouse was officially opened on September 9, 1911. This building was essentially what we have today, without the Trophy Lounge which was added in 1936. In 1990 the VRC clubhouse received Heritage Designation from Vancouver City Council." (Submitted on June 17, 2010.)
