Welcome to HYC


Welcome to HYC

Competitive sailing began at Hobsonville in the early 1930's which led to the formation of the Hobsonville Boating Club (HBC) in 1934. With the Defence amalgamation of Hobsonville and Whenuapai in 1966 to become RNZAF Base Auckland, the HBC was retitled RNZAF Base Auckland Yacht Club (RNZAF BAYC). However since the airforce base has moved from Hobsonville we are now known as The Hobsonville Yacht Club. Our aim is to keep the  tradition of recreational boating alive at Hobsonville.





End of an era ...... Aerial photograph RNZAF BAYC taken back in approximately 1998. Oh how things have changed since then......and are still changing 


We now also have a Facebook page - "Hobsonville Yacht Club"

Sailing captains report - 20th January 2021


Hello to all of you,
I hope you all had a great holiday season and had some time to enjoy the top-notch sailing races of the Americas Cup World Series.
The excitement level is rising since the PRADA Cup is in full swing and people tend to speak a lot about sailing which is absolutely GREAT!
As you may know already, we sourced two Flying 11 pocket rockets before Christmas to support our double-handed sailing development. We are expecting a third one to arrive soon. It is so exciting!! Can’t wait to see them on the water. 
Many thanks to the Russell Coutts Sailing Foundation for the generous donation and to our friends at Yachting NZ for recognizing our efforts and supporting us.
Here's a link to a little fun. Click to see these boats in action.
I thought it would be timely to issue the first Sailing Captain Update between two Round Robins. We have some changes to our routine. So, here is my brief summary including those:
Learn-To-Sail - SF TRAINING:
The Post-Christmas season will start this Friday, 22 January 2021. Meeting at the Containers at 16:30. Please, plan your trip to Catalina Bay as there are parking restrictions around. 
The coaching team will run a Refresher Session for the Learn to Sail and a Training Session for the Sailing Fast group.
It's going to be a rising tide with a 2.80m high water expected at 9:19 pm.
How can you assist? 
1) Please flick an email with REPLY TO ALL if you wish to attend before Thursday night, so we can plan ahead.
2) We need marshalls to guide our sailors to the ramp between the forest of orange cones. (Grab a high-vis, vest and feel the power of it!)
3) You can help by launching and retrieving the boats. (Please don't rig the boats! The sailors will do that as a part of the refresher.)
4) You can organise some food for the hungry sailors. You will be our favourite!
5) Take some pictures and share them with us.
RACING:
We are holding our first club racing on Sunday, 24 Jan 2021. Meeting at the Containers at 1.00 pm with a race start at 3:00 pm. High Water is at 4:56 pm,  2.7m. Further details will be discussed on Friday. It would be great to have your RSVP before Thursday night (REPLY TO ALL). Again, please plan your trip and parking ahead.
I wish you all an awesome 2021!
Happy sailing,
Tamás Sebestény

HYC Commodore Update: 15 January 2021


 

Hi Again to all Club Members/Dinghy/Keeler/Junior/LTS Sailors /Parents

Firstly, I would you like to wish everyone a happy new year and I hope you all had a great Christmas break. 

We are all looking forward to getting back into the sailing program starting next week with the Friday Learn to sail (22nd Jan) and the back into racing on the sunday (24 Jan). Tamas will send an email out with the details on the 2021 sailing program in due course.

 

Unfortunately this email is mostly to inform the club membership of some bad news regarding our Temporary Bar Licence in the interim club rooms. The issue is out of our control and sits with KO & Council, and is related to the unforeseen Auckland Council building and licence approval process. We were made aware of the issue late last year, but it has not resolved at this time.

 

In short, the executive committee has from today been required to make a decision to CLOSE the BAR until an issue with our Temporary bar licence is resolved. 

If we do not put the serving of Alcohol in our bar on hold, we risk not getting a temp licence or have the potential to place us in a bad situation in the future when applying for a new licence.

 

So from Today 15th Jan 21 the BAR is closed and we do not have a time frame for reopening. Use of club facilities is still in place but we can not serve alcohol.

 

The Executive is working  hard to get the issue resolved and is looking for options/work arounds as soon as possible, and I will keep you updated on progress.

 

My apologies for this and I am personally very disappointed with the situation but there is no work around to this issue at this time. 

 

Again Happy New Year and Happy sailing. Sorry about the bad news.

 

If you have any questions please contact Sean on 0226924327.

HYC Commodore and the Executive Committee





Sailing Captain's Report - Monday 14th December

 
Hello to all, Sailing Families & Club members

What a night we had last Friday! CAPSIZING! Wow, wow, wow! Congrats to all Volunteers who assisted to manage the night using our new compound at the very first time. Great teamwork. Thanks, Gill for the Session Plan. It played a crucial part in the success of this night!

LTS - Session 5, 11 December 2020 (17:00 HW 3.1m):
This session is my personal favourite in our Learn to Sail programme. It is always great to see when our junior sailors pushing themselves out of their comfort zone to have a dip in the "wild and freezing-cold Pacific Ocean".

Believe me, one of the greatest motivations for a Learn to Sailing coach is to witness and guide the emotional journey of a sailor from the ''I don't feel confident to do this" to the "I want to do it again, please, please, please. Just one more time! ...and these great bunch of kids completed the journey. It is a greatly rewarding feeling, indeed.

As a bonus, we had seen some great sailing around the course in a fresh westerly wind. Well done, girls and boys!
Huge thanks for all the four coach patrol boat crew who kept us safe in and on the water. Keep up the good work! You are legends!


Upcoming events:
LTS - Session 6, 18 December 2020 (16:57 LW 0.8m):
On the Learn to Sail night, there is going to be a Xmas party / Xmas Games Night led by our fantastic assistant coaches with a POTLUCK Dinner afterwards to celebrate Xmas. Bring along a pot of food to share! Dinner will start after Juniors Xmas Games has finished. Senior coach team will be in charge to put some sausages and burger patties onto the BBQ provided by the Club. Let's meet at the new temporary clubhouse opposite to Farmers Market at 5 pm.

Although sailing is not planned for this night due to the super low water, I'm sure it will be a great social event.



LTS - Session 7, 22 January 2021 (21:19 HW 2.8):
On water / Refresher, so Sailing, Sailing, Sailing!!!
Sailing Fast Training


Racing events:
I'm planning to organise a fun race for dinghies on 19 December 2020 (11:54 HW 3.27m). If you are interested please send me a note before Wednesday evening. If we have the numbers, I will send a confirmation to you. Planned start time 11:00 - meet at 9:00.

Race 1&2 post-Xmas series, 24 January 2021 (16:56 HW 2.7m)
Start time: 15:00 - meet at 13:00


Sailing events to watch:
PRADA America's Cup World Series Auckland
17 - 19 December 2020 - Access to the Auckland Race Village is completely FREE.
Have a great week and see you on Friday,

Tamas - Sailing Captain 


HYC COMMODORES REPORT: 26 November 2020


 
Hi to all Club Members/Dinghy/Keeler/Junior/LTS Sailors /Parents,

‘End of an Era’

Sadly, the prolonged end of an era is finally a reality! It’s time to move the HYC.

After well over 50 years the HYC/RNZAF BAYC clubrooms which have been a historical landmark of Auckland’s upper harbour, will be no more as it makes way for the Catalina Bay development. 

On the 17th of November the Special General Meeting was held to allow the club members to vote on a motion for HYC to accept a resolution to sign “the Agreement” with Kāinga Ora (KO), and the club membership fully supported the resolution. The agreement is the catalyst for the relocation of the club to an interim club house and storage area, and then eventually the exciting relocation to the future Marine centre.

So with a little sadness it is nearly time to farewell the old HYC/RNZAF BAYC clubrooms, but let’s preserve the history and memories both sailing and social, and talk about them. My first involvement with the club goes back to when I was a young kid down at the club over 45 years ago, so I personally have a lot of great memories of the club, the sailing/social events held and some of the antics which occurred in the clubhouse. I certainly will preserve the history and those memories of great times and people into the future, and I am sure the older members of the club will too. It is important to not forget where the club started or came from.
 

On a positive note, it is an exciting time of change too for HYC and the local area. The future Marine centre looks like it will be fantastic with the new wharf and platform, and eventual new building on the platform. 

 

In the interim KO have looked after HYC during the transition to the Marine centre with interim storage yards and a clubhouse. The facilities will be more than adequate so we can keep the sailing and socialising moving along. 

I would like to thank KO for this and also to thank all the efforts of the HYC Trust reps, past/current Executive committee members and club members for getting the club heading towards what I believe is a very exciting future!  

Following this report will be correspondence providing information about the HYC transition plan to the interim clubrooms and the club events leading up to Christmas. My apologies in advance as there will be a lot of information to digest, but please read it as there are important requests and information for the club membership. 

Thank you to everyone past and present for the great memories and fun in the HYC/RNZAF BAYC clubrooms. We all had some great times!

Sean Munro
HYC Commodore








HYC Relocation and Upcoming Events: 26 November 2020


 
Hi Again to all Club Members/Dinghy/Keeler/Junior/LTS Sailors /Parents,
 
This correspondence will provide the club members with information about the relocation of HYC to the Interim clubrooms and storage area. It will also detail the changes to upcoming events at the club.
 
My apologies in advance as there is a lot of information to digest, but please read it as there are important requests and information for the club membership.
 
Firstly, I would like to reach out to all the club membership and LTS parents to request everyone please put up their hand to assist with the relocation over the next 2-3 weeks/weekends.
 
‘Many hands, make light work’ and we please should not be relying on the executive and a few others club members to do all the work. 
 
As I am about to discuss we have a short timeframe and we all do not want to be shifting still in the last week before Christmas. In short, we have started the ball rolling on the move already. 
 
The Plan:

The Executive had a meeting on Tuesday night and have developed a core plan.  The plan documents the goal, 5x core teams, the lead team member, team roles and the known team task breakdown; required for the relocation of HYC to the KO interim facility. In other words, the Relocation activities will be split into teams with leaders monitoring activity. So you will be assigned to a team.

The Relocation plan’s goal is to relocate the Hobsonville Yacht club to the KO interim facility and storage yards with minimal disruption to the HYC LTS program, other sailing activities and the requirement to minimise other club social activity or revenue generating activities. 

However, the reality is the weekend racing activity will cease up to Christmas to create more weekend time for the move, but the intent is to keep the LTS and Social activity running hopefully with minimal disruption.
  
The plan has been put together relatively quickly so there will be some holes or things we have missed, and there is guaranteed to be some timeline changes. There are a number of things which need to fall into place in the next week for the plan to work so my request is to please be flexible, patient and understanding over the coming weeks.

Timeframe
The timeframe is ambitious but achievable where we expect to be mostly moved in 2-3 weeks. There may be some roadblocks and changes required along the way but the Executive will do our best to remove these and communicate any changes.
Move Dates
Weekends; 28-29 Nov, 5-6 Dec, 12-13 Dec.
From this Saturday 28thNovember the club will open from about 10.30am to start packing things up. And potentially Sunday. There will be a small team down there at this stage but it would be great if we had more to assist. Please call Sean on 0226924327 to confirm you’re available and I will confirm the times we will be there. 

The full-move date is planned for Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of December starting at 8am through until approximately 5pm on Saturday and 3pm on Sunday. When you turn up on the day, you will be assigned to a team.

The weekend of the 12-13 Dec will be the final clean up/ move and/or reserve weekend. Further details will follow on the plans for the 12-13 Dec weekend.

Important Note; 
If you please give an indication of your availability to help by sending a reply to the members@hycnz.org.nz email or if you have questions please call me on 0226924327. We would like to please understand the numbers.
 
RELOCATION TEAMS
The following relocation teams and team leads have been assigned, see below;
1.    Executive:                               Lead; Sean Munro
2.    Administration:                     Lead; Colart Miles
3.    Sailing Program/Equipment:  Lead; Tamas Sebestény
4.    Bar:                                         Lead; Nigel Watkins
5.    Property/Facilities:               Lead; Steve Old
 
HYC OLD Clubroom ‘Farewell’ Function
Following the major portion of the shift, we are going to have a social function in the club on Sunday 6th starting at 3pm to farewell the old clubhouse plus refresh ourselves after a weekend of hard work. There will be a Commodore’s shout and a BBQ. 
The intent is to keep the old clubhouse bar running in a basic state up until the 6th.  We will then likely transition to the new club during the week. 
Note; The Executive wanted to have a big farewell function but unfortunately the timelines are very tight so we could not fit it in. Our apologies for this and I know some will be disappointed but there is not much we could do.

Bar Opening Times
At this time the Bar opening times will not change but they are likely to be subject to change due to the shift. The Executive will communicate any changes and there is a potential we may need to close the bar as it’s transitioned to the interim clubrooms. 
I recommend to please use and enjoy the old clubhouse and bar up until the 6th Dec 2020. Please just be aware that we will be packing items up from this weekend.
 
Learn To Sail (LTS) Program
 
At this time the ‘Learn to Sail’ program will continue throughout the transition. This may be subject to change but we will communicate this.

The next ‘on the water’ session is this Friday 27th November 2020. Please arrive at 4.30pm for a 5pm start.

Tamas will be away this week so Gill and her coaching team will need assistance on the ramp and boats. 
 
Please ensure care is taken on the ramp and the kids have good safety gear and protective footwear on.   
 
Thank you for all those who attended the last Monday night session, the theory sessions help to give the kids a good background to what they learn on the water. Please note the next Monday night session on the 07 Dec may be subject to change due to the shift but we will communicate any changes.
  
Dinghy Racing Program 2020/21
 
Due to the shift, the Sailing Committee has decided to cancel the racing program up to Christmas. Our apologies for this but we please need the weekend time to ensure a smooth relocation to the interim clubhouse. We will go back to normal in 2021. Please refer to the upcoming events spreadsheet for the detail on the first race day in the New Year, 24th Jan 2021.
 
Keeler Racing Program 2020/21
 
The focus for racing this year will be more aligned to cruising. The program has not been set yet and the sailing committee is still looking for a Keeler representative to assist in setting the program. We would really please like one of the skippers to volunteer their services as we want to see the Keelers division build up again. It’s an important part of the club and its future.
 

Please let us know if you have any questions. For anything sailing related please contact Tamas but for HYC relocation/general related contact Sean.  
 
We are looking forward to seeing everyone down at HYC to help us move towards the future!
 
Thanks
 
Sean, Tamas and the Executive Committee
(HYC Commodore and Sailing Captain)

Learn To Sail Report for Friday 20th November 2020



What a night! Last Friday we had the 2nd evening of our LTS course. HYC's coaching team came up with a great plan to teach some basic sailing skills on the land to fast-track our theory foundation. Yey! From now, tacking, gybing and towing are in our blood. Thanks Gill, Dennis and Colart! While the tribes were rotated around the 3 stations, the parent helpers get some practical knowledge around our patrol boats from our new Commodore, Sean.

And then the fun began. Tribe Two jumped into action and demonstrated some good skills on the helm following the coach patrol boats on the painters. Meanwhile  Tribe One played the World famous Captain's Coming with Grace and McKenzie. It was so much fun for all. Spectators got to watch from the slipway as skippers and first mates jumped into the water from the SailQubes. No! No! No! Our tribes didn't give up on sailing when in the middle of the harbour. It was a planned drill to successfully complete their swim test.
The enthusiasm of Tribe One was even higher when they came to take the challenge. Woo-hoo! 
Although some found the water a little cold, a hot shower and pizza put the smiles back to all faces. 

It was great to celebrate our Junior Sailors of the Day. Well done Katherine, Sophia and Senan.

020/21 Sailing Program: HYC SAILING CAPTAIN UPDATE: 19 November 2020

020/21 Sailing Program: HYC SAILING CAPTAIN UPDATE: 19 November 2020

HYC Relocation
On Tuesday 17 November the Special General Meeting was held to allow the club members to vote on a motion for HYC to accept a resolution to sign “the Agreement” with Kāinga Ora. 
This agreement essentially is the catalyst for the relocation of the club to an interim club house and storage area, and then eventually to the ultimate relocation to the future Marine centre.
In short, the club members passed this motion and in the coming few weeks we will be relocating. 

Could I please request that all club members please put up their hand to assist, including the LTS program parents. At this stage we will need to set aside a weekend to get the majority of work done and it is likely to be in the first couple of weeks in December.  The intent is to move with minimal disruption to all club activities, however the Executive committee will need lots of help to make a successful transition. Further correspondence will be sent out on this once the plan is put in place.   

Commodore and Sailing Captain Change
Also during the meeting Bronny announced she would be stepping down as the Commodore due to a short notice move to the winterless north. We would like to wish Bronny and Scott well, and would like to thank them both for all the effort they have put into HYC. Your efforts have been much appreciated and have fun up north!

With Bronny's departure I have stepped up into the Commodore position and Tamas Senbesteny has moved into the Vice Commodore/Sailing captain position. 


Learn To Sail (LTS) Program

The ‘Learn to Sail’ program has its 2nd session this Friday 20th November 2020. Please arrive at 4.30pm for a 5pm start.



It is likely this session will be mostly land based due to the influence of the very low tide. 

For the parents/safety boat drivers we will be running a course on the safety boats starting at 5.10pm. Please attend this to assist with/drive the safety boats.

 

Quick Reminder; Tamas, Gill and their coaching team will need assistance on the ramp and with the boats. Please ensure care is taken on the ramp and the kids have good safety gear and protective footwear on.   

 

Also this Monday night 23 Nov 2020 5-6.30pm is the next full landbased/theory session.

 

Reminder the $75 pre-Xmas, plus the club membership fees are due but it will be invoiced. I will be available to take payment by cash or Eftpos if required after the LTS session.  

 



Dinghy Racing Program 2020/21

The next Dinghy racing will be on this Sunday 22nd with the first three races of an eight race pre-Xmas series.



Be prepared that the weather/wind might not play the part this weekend so please watch your emails if we cancel early. It is likely however, that we will cancel once we have made an assessment down at the club on Sunday Morning. 

 

Date; Sun November 22th 2020; Race 1, 2 & 3 

Time; 11am sheds open, for a 1pm start.

Sun 22 Nov 20

1402 HW 3.1

1100/1300

Training/Race 1, 2 & 3 - Pre Xmas Series


We will have a pre-race briefing at 12pm; all to attend and please be on time. 

 

Following racing we will have our race results briefing and presentation 45 mins after the last boat, including the Safety boats, are back at the HYC compound.

 



Keeler Racing Program 2020/21

 

The focus for racing this year will be more aligned to cruising. The program has not been set yet and the sailing committee is looking for a Keeler representative to assist in setting the program. We would really please like one of the skippers to volunteer their services as we want to see the Keelers division build up again. It’s an important part of the club and its future.

Need to clean your bum????

Why not try Floating Dock Services on X Pier in Westhaven who sponsored HYC's winter series races!!!!




Clinton who runs the floating dock service would like to remind all our members that if you plan to going sailing up north this summer you will need to have been cleaned (water blasted to get all of the gremlins off) within 30 days or less of leaving for your cruising trip.

(the only exception is for boats with new anti foul - they have a six months from the date that they were anti fouled)

****floating dock services are getting busy in the build up to the summer holidays, so best to book your clean early to avoid disappointment ****

Please make sure you mention that you are a member of HYC ... it will make him happy as it will show him it is worth while sponsoring us!!

Ps This is a great service for those of us who do not like having strap marks on our bottoms!!!!!!
