Oahu Yacht Clubs

Yacht clubs and other sailing clubs based on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

Ala Wai Yacht Harbor Clubs

Hawaii Yacht Club

The Hawaii Yacht Club was founded in 1901 and it is based at the Ala Wai Boat Harbor. Their clubhouse building has a restaurant and bar for members and it is located at 1739 Ala Moana Boulevard, Building C. The Hawaii Yacht Club has sailing, power boating, and fishing programs.

Waikiki Yacht Club
The Waikiki Yacht Club is also based at the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor but their clubhouse is inside Ala Moana Park at 1599 Ala Moana Boulevard. Club facilities include a bar, restaurant, and swimming pool for members. The Waikiki Yacht Club has sailing, power boating, and paddling programs.

Royal Hawaiian Ocean Racing Club (no Web site)
Founded in 1985 to promote and assist with producing the Kenwood Cup Hawaii International Ocean Racing series, a biennial Central Pacific racing series held between 1986 and 2000 when Japan's Kenwood Corporation was no longer able to sponsor the series. In 2004 members of the Waikiki Yacht Club founded a series similar to the Kenwood Cup called the Waikiki Offshore Racing Series. QUESTION: Does the Royal Hawaiian Ocean Racing Club still exist as an organization?

Other Oahu Yacht Clubs

Kaneohe Yacht Club
The Kaneohe Yacht club was founded in 1924. At that time the club facilities were located on the west side of Kaneohe Bay. TTheir current clubhouse on the east side of the bay was built in 1955.

Makani Kai Yacht Club
This Kaneohe based yacht club founded in 1978 is associated with the Makani Kai Marina residential community. The community includes 78 condominiums, each with their own boat slip.

Pearl Harbor Yacht Club
The Pearl Harbor Yacht club was founded in 1924 and some time after that the members purchased the home of Albert Fayerweather Afong to use as their clubhouse. The club's activities came to a halt on December 7, 1941 when pearl harbor was attacked by the Japanese. In 1944 some of the former members of the Pearl Harbor Yacht Club founded the Waikiki Yacht Club that is now based at the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. Today members of the Pearl Harbor Yacht club meet at the Rainbow Bay Marina the first Thursday of each month for a sunset sail followed by cocktails and a membership meeting. Club is based at 57 Arizona Memorial Drive, Slip 127.

Iroquois Lagoon Yacht Club
This yacht club associated with the Iroquois Point Island Club Development Project is based at 5990 Gannet Avenue in Ewa Beach.

Oahu Sailing Clubs

Kokokahi Sailing Club
This recreational sailing club founded in 1972 is based at the Kokokahi YWCA in Kaneohe on the windward side of Oahu.

La Mariana Sailing Club
There are 80 boat slips attached to this restaurant and bar on Honolulu's Keehi Lagoon. The restaurant's original owner Annette Nahinu founded it in 1955 and she moved it to its current location in 1973. As of 2006, she was in her 90's and still running the restaurant. She was expecting to eventually sell the restaurant for about $3 million.

Free Spirit Sailing Club
The owner of the "Free Spirit" 48 foot trimaran in the Kewalo Basin operates a sailing clubs for local Hawaii residents and their guests. At one point the "Free Spirit" was up for sale with a price somewhere between $250,000 and $500,000, so I'm not sure if this club is still operating.
