Hawaii Sailing Clubs
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.

KSC events draw all types and sizes of sailboat along with skippers and crews of varying skill levels who enjoy the thrill of competition while expanding their sailing education in a friendly aquatic arena.
The Lahaina Yacht Club was founded in 1965 and occupies our clubhouse (an old laundry) located at 835 Front St. in Lahaina. The building has a great view of the Lahaina Roadstead and the islands of Kaho`olave, Lana`i, and Moloka`i. Sunsets can be spectacular from the dining room deck overhanging the ocean. We co-sponsor the Victoria to Maui International Yacht Race with the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, which was first run in 1968, every even numbered year in the early part of July and put on several regattas yearly in the Lahaina area.
We have Junior Sailing Classes during summer break, and sponsor a Charity Golf Tournament and Auction in the fall. The club fleet consists of 8 Sabots, 8 O”pen Bics, 4 Lasers, a Lido 14 and an Olson 30 (Snickers). Snickers is used by our club race team for local racing and for daysails by club members and guests.
The primary purpose of Maui Boat & Yacht Club is to allow its members to become proficient in sailing small craft and all matters pertaining to seamanship. This is done at a minimum cost through self-help and cooperation. Because the Club is a ‘paper club’ and has no clubhouse and no paid staff, our activities are carried out by dedicated member- volunteers.who make it possible to sponsor and hold regattas, seminars, and other fun events. We are comprised of people who love to sail!
