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"

An invite to HYC members

Gill and the junior sailing committee would like to invite all club members to view the three different Optis which the club can purchase using the money from the Million Dollar Mission

Sean has put them inside the club house in the snug area by the couches for members to view  this Wednesday 26th June and/or Friday 28th June (evening)

They welcome any feedback, both positive and negative regarding these dinghies.

We are in a very fortunate position to have 3 options, and because we are buying 8, the suppliers are very keen to do business! (thanks to The Million Dollar Mission)

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!!!!!!
