Classboat Regattas can be Pretty Interesting
There's something for everyone in this regatta. We have our fastest/most-tricky boats and our slowest/most-tactical boats on the water at the same time. The photos for Classboat "J" have been posted. You can find the I-14 pictures HERE and the Cal-20 pictures HERE.

2017 Kauai Channel Race
Our Commodore Tom Wood, Vice Commodore Frederic Berg and Director Mark Andrade were on station to man the start line for the Kauai Channel Race. They also managed to snap a few pictures. You can find those start line pictures on the KYC Offshore Racing page. We've also set up a RaceQS replay for the Kauai Channel Race on that same page.
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip.
This year's Riddle Regatta was a little nostalgic. In case you were wondering, the theme was Gilligan's Island. This is a fun regatta where you buy down your start time by showing up in costume or buying regatta shirts. Once you are on the water answer the riddles to figure out your course. Thanks Bill Riddle for putting on a great event. HERE are some pictures of the event.
What are those crazy junior sailors up to now?
Did you have a chance to watch all the fun at the Plywood Cup? The Plywood Cup is not your typical fundraiser for United Cerebral Palsy of Hawaii. This is a fun competition that pits teams of boat builders against the clock and against the sea. You sink - You loose. Browse through pictures of all the fun HERE.
Another Great Day on the Water.
Kaneohe Yacht club proudly hosted the IRF Wahine Invitational Regatta. We had 10 boats on the line with upwards of 50 sailors. This race is one event in a grueling woman's series of 21 races, at 7 different venues. These wahine all do it with smiles on their faces, and they do it with class. Click HERE for race results.
