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.

Junior Sailing update - Monday 14th September 2020



Hi All,

Unfortunately we have decided it is best to cancel the last race of the winter series on the 20th Sept due to the uncertainty around C19 levels and the tide timing is not good. The decision was made following the Yachting NZ coaches course run over the weekend. The good news is that by the end of the week we will have 4x authorised/revalidated coaches and 2x Assistant coaches to run our LTS and training program.

The plan is to start/reset with the Summer program in mid-late October with the Learn To Sail program starting in November. 
Further details/dates on the summer program will be provided in due course once the planning is complete.

Prior to the Summer program we will look to have a Working Bee concentrating on some Boat maintenance, in particular the Firebugs. Further details/Dates to follow on this.  



Thanks 

Dinghy/Junior Sailing Committee

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!!!!!!
