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.

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

Alert Level 3 - Members update Saturday 15th August




Most of you have probably seen or heard the announcement from the Prime Minister yesterday afternoon by now. We will remain in Level 3 status for the next 12 days. 

Hobsonville Yacht Club and facilities are required to remain closed to all members at this stage until the 27th of August. The government shall be  reviewing the situation on the 21st of August, when they shall decide if Auckland's alert level is eased or we go up a notch (hopefully not the latter).
Level 3 also means that all club activities are suspended in line with government guidelines.
  
***Under Level 3 our members (and the general public in Auckland) are not  allowed to go sailing/cruising on yachts/launches ...****

Stay safe, follow the rules and hopefully alert Level three will end on 27th August.

Sunday 9th August 2020, race 5 & 6 of HYC Dinghy 2020 Winter Series was sailed



We had 7x boats out on the water and keeping with the theme of previous race days, it was typically Upper Harbour tricky/shifty 8-15 knots. Close racing was again enjoyed by the sailors,although it unfortunately ended up being a day of gear breakage, but that’s racing!

In the Opti’s Astin and Jackson shared each race, Kieran won both races in the Starlings and Tamas &Taylor and Grace &Sean shared races in the bigger Dinghies. It was great to see Jackson out on the water and with Kiera likely back next time, it would be great to see a couple more Opti sailors on the water.

There were a couple of gear breakages on the water and Kieran had some issues with the boat taking on water. This impacted the last race results, but Kieran’s recovery after starting 2 minutes behind to win was well done. The issues in the last race resulted in a few ‘Pirates" of the Day’ presented at the post race prize giving.

Big thanks to Gill, Colin and Colart who assisted on the day to run the racing from the towerand on the water. Also a thanks to Dean and Justin for helping on the ramp.

The next race day is Sunday 23rd  August 2020; Race 7 &  8. It is a different time from last race day 8am sheds open, for a 10am start.

We will have a briefing at 9am, all to attend and be on time. Following racing we will have our race results briefing 30 mins after the last boat, including the Safety boats, are back at
the HYC compound.

It was thought yesterday that it was going to be a later start time but Sean got this wrong. The tides are not in our favour for a Sunday sleep in until the last race of the winter series!
Again would be great to please see a bigger turn out. Let’s hope the weather is good again!

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!!!!!!
