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.










Mckenzie sailing back in 2015.  Her and her brother attended our first " have ago day" in February 2015, and they  have been members of the HYC Junior sailing programme ever since


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

Junior sailing announcement - July 6th 2020



To All Dinghy/Junior/LTS Sailors/Club Members/Parents,

Hope everyone is well and are looking forward to getting back out on the water!

I thought I would send out a quick email to remind all that we are commencing the Winter Racing Series this Sunday 12 July 20; 10am sheds/club open for a 12 pm start.

The winter series will consist of 10x races (drop 2x worst performances), which is only 2x less races than previous years.

At this stage the weather forecast is OK, so we would like to please see a good fleet on the water and it would be great to see the confident sailors from the Learn to Sail program on the water too!

We understand that it's school holidays and some may be away but for those that are available we would like to get the sailing up and running again.

Reminder that the Learn to Sail program is run during the summer months so will start again in late October/ early November, once daylight saving starts.

****attached are the details on the up-coming events****



Please let us know if you have any questions

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!!!!!!
