Hawaii Yacht Club

HYC History

The Yacht Club was founded in 1901. Since then we’ve been pleased to welcome thousands of cruising yachts from around the world and have become well known as the “Cruising Club of the Pacific”. We are very pleased to welcome you, your family, and your crew among that number. Located at the Ala Wai Boat Harbor in Waikiki we offer a junior sailing program, fishing tournaments, and racing regattas. We also support the Trans Pacific race.

Come on aboard and take a look.
