Race Committee

WYC's races are run by our all-volunteer Race Committee. They're the folks who you see on the little bobbing boat anchored at the right end of the start line, valiantly keeping time with the official sandglass, raising signal flags in the correct sequence and sounding the horn to alert sailors to the countdown time, all while holding on with two hands. After the races, they may be found huddled over laptop computers, entering finishing times in to the algorithm that determines the day's winner and who's buying drinks all around. If you’re interested in helping out with race committee contact [email protected] Regatta Chairman:  John Climaldi Principal Race Officer:  John Climaldi Photographer:  Contact Carolyn Majewski [email protected] Volunteers: Sean Doyle Gary Evoniuk Hideki Hayashi Michael Roth Michael Rothwell Ian Rothwell Jim Maynard Steve Thomas Megan McDonald Andrew Mead Philip Katzman Be sure to say mahalo to them when you see them around our club. They are the ones who set the course, the start and finish lines, and who keep the time to deliver great racing.

WYC Regattas

ADULT SAILING LESSONS ON WYC CAL 20s 

We are very fortunate to have Gary Evoniuk at the helm. He is a former RC-Sail and now serving on the Board as a Director. Gary is also in charge of the Club's Cal-20 Adult Sailing Program. With this great program, maybe it’s time for you to join the fun on the water!

Sign up for training on one of the Cub’s Cal 20's. Gary is happy to work with you to provide a custom program or a single lesson to get your feet wet. The cost is reasonable so reach out to Gary as he can join interested parties to bring the cost down further.  [email protected]

Following completion of the course and/or certification for those who already have sufficient sailing expertise, you can charter a Cal 20 for either a half-day or full-day. 

The Club’s basic sailing program is about 12 hours. It consists of four three-hour lessons on the water off Waikiki and Diamond Head. Topics covered in these classes include: seamanship, terminology, knot-tying, rules of the road, navigation, and boat maintenance.

Friday Night "Beer Can" Races

Along with more competitive weekend regattas, Friday night races are a time honored tradition at the Waikiki Yacht Club. Members gather around 4pm at the Club to enjoy the "Beer Can" race out of the Ala Wai Harbor, racing to either Diamond Head Buoy or a mark off of Honolulu Harbor.   We are updating our "crew finder" page so check back here soon for sailors looking to connect with captains who may be looking for crew.  The best way to get involved with sailboat racing is to look into the possibility of joining a yacht or sailing club. Many crews are recruited from members who get to know each other through club activities. Membership information for WYC is available by calling the Club's central number: 808 955-4405.
