CLUB BOAT PROGRAM

HYC keeps several boats available for Intermediate and Active members to sail at no charge.  All you need to do is sign up for the club boat program, take a simple written test on boat safety and handling, get checked out by an experienced member, and commit to two weekends a year maintaining the boats. The club's two Catalina 25 keelboats may be sailed outside the protected waters of Eastchester Bay; dinghies must stay closer to home. For more information, contact clubboats@hyc.org.

CATALINA 25

The club owns two Catalina 25 pocket cruisers, Summer Wind and Zydeco. The Catalina 25 is among the most successful small cruising boats ever built, thanks to its relatively spacious accommodations, high quality, and reasonable prices. The boat balances and tracks relatively well and is quite maneuverable when properly trimmed.

 

Unlike the Club's dinghies, the Catalina offers comfortable sleeping space below and an outboard motor.  Write to clubboats@hyc.org to get checked out on Summer Wind and Zydeco and gain access to  their scheduling calendars.

HUNTER 146

The Hunter 146 is a fourteen-and-a-half-foot sailing dinghy designed for novice sailors, with the higher freeboard, wider beam (6.5 feet), and unsinkable hull needed to instill confidence in the beginning mariner.  The boat has a kick-up rudder and a kick-up centerboard, drawing just 6 inches with the board up and 3 feet with the board down.

Write to clubboats@hyc.org​ to get checked out on our Hunter 146 and gain access to  its scheduling calendar. 

CAPRI 14.2

The Capri 14.2 is the perfect combination of day sailing comfort and racing performance for the active sailing family or couple. Stability and easy handling make the 14.2 an ideal boat to learn in, while the experienced skipper will enjoy the active one-design racing class.  Our 14.2 has a centerboard and kick-up rudder and lives on the HYC dock. 

The Capri is  equipped with hiking straps to allow the crew to move their weight outboard. It will easily accommodate three adults or two adults and two children. It would be the daysailer of choice for a family.
