Mission and History
Established in 1924, the Kaneohe Yacht Club is dedicated to inspiring and promoting appreciation of sailing, power-boating and other maritime sports through competitive, recreational and social activities. We provide a haven in Windward Oahu for boating enthusiasts and their guests with our first-class harbor facilities, clubhouse and other amenities, fostering good seamanship, education and an overall spirit of camaraderie and excellence.
The Kaneohe Yacht Club was first established on October 28, 1924 by its original name Kaneohe Yacht & Boating Club. Opening ceremonies of “Kaneohe Yacht club,” at the present site were held on December 17, 1955. KYC is the oldest continuous operating yacht club in Hawaii. Our club is situated in beautiful Kaneohe Bay, nestled in one of the Nature’s most magnificent panoramic stretches. The Bay is fringed with green trees and coral sand. The waters seep through varying shared of green and blue out to the crested breakers on the reef.
Today, we take great pride in KYC’s boating atmosphere. We maintain a friendly relaxed atmosphere and contribute to improving boating sports, recreation and education in Hawaii.
