Dear Sailing Ohana,
Thank you for a wonderful year. It was great to sea many of you out on the water, and to connect with other PHYC members far away.
We've had successes! Our Junior Racers had a great season, and our team is growing as we launch into 2023. We participated in Wahine Series Races, HLA Races, Bullship, Lipton Cup. We hosted HYSA, and the Sears Cup at Rainbow Bay Marina, We’ve had Holiday events, and our very own Juicebox Races held the last Thursday of each month. We’ve had A LOT of Fun! We’ve sailed on big boats and have learned more about of our amazing history!
In 2024, we will celebrate our Centennial. If you would like to help out with this, we'd love for you to come on board.
We hope you will join us for one of our upcoming events.
Mahalo for your membership and continued support. Let's sail PHYC Ohana!
Sail on in 2023,
