Pearl Harbor Yacht Club
Welcome to Pearl Harbor Yacht Club, est 1924

Pearl Harbor Yacht Club, founded in 1924, provides recreational and competitive boating opportunities for both Military and Civilian Boaters. PHYC serves Active Duty, Reserve, Retiree, DoD personnel and their families, as well as the community at large. We sail out of beautiful Rainbow Bay Marina. near Pearl Harbor. Join us for Youth racing, Wahine racing and Family events.

Dear Sailing Ohana,

After emerging from the fog of COVID protocols, PHYC has begun to raise our sails again in 2022. We have a slim but eager Junior Sailing Team. They recently competed in their first HYSA El Toro race. We are excited to see what they will do next, and how our team will grow. Our Wonderful Wahine sailors are also quite enthusiastic and determined about upcoming races and training opportunities.


Another fascinating endeavor we are taking on this year is to relearn our rich and storied past at Pearl Harbor Yacht Club. Established in 1924, we were there when yacht racing was just beginning in Hawaii. We especially want to expand our understanding as we look ahead to our Centennial Celebration in 2024! Stay tuned for that!


This year we hope to raise money to buy new racing sails for our Laser sailboats. These sails definitely get their share of wear and tear every day, and will be needed for upcoming races. New and exciting events are on the horizon! We hope to bring back Thursday night sunset races, family sails and other social events.


We hope you will join us for one of our upcoming events. Keep up to date with all the wonderful opportunities on our Facebook and Instagram pages.


Mahalo for your membership and continued support. Your contributions and membership make what we do possible!


Sail on,
