We're Celebrating 100 Years at PHYC!

A big MAHALO to our amazing PHYC members near and far who have continued to support us over the years, we appreciate you and hope you will continue to support our cause; YOU truly make a difference in the lives of so many of our youth!!

We are hailing a few new Board members this year and would like to shout out a big THANK YOU to our out-going Board members for volunteering endless hours of their time to make PHYC the FUN Place to Sail!!

We were very successful last year in taking home awards in many of the series we participated in: Bullship, Wahine Series Races, Lipton Cup, HLA Races, and Sears Cup and HYSA held at Rainbow Bay Marina.

We know our PHYC Ohana is resilient so any day on the water or just hanging out at Rainbow Bay Marina learning, laughing or watching the sunset is a great day, so our Thursday Night Juicebox Races will continue this year along with some pop-up races and family events!

Talk about history, Pearl Harbor Yacht Club is 100 years old!!!

We have lots of historical facts and stories to share, exciting events, and activities planned this year to commemorate our Centennial Celebration: 100 years of Hawaii Sailing History.

Come join us to learn about the rich history of PHYC and discover what local royalty belonged to PHYC back in the day, and some of their sailing traditions and shenanigans!

Don’t forget to renew your membership and be sure to check back often so you don’t miss out on the Centennial event details!

We look forward to an incredible year with you!!

PHYC, the FUN Place to Sail!!
