Youth Sailing Program (Ragnots)

HYC has one of the most acclaimed youth sailing programs in the country.  The Ragnots sail throughout the year and hold several sailing camps in the summer. The focus here is on discipline and teamwork, as well as enjoying a variety of water-related activities.

Yachting Association and Mosquito Fleet

For great fun on and off the water, the Yachting Association and Mosquito Fleet are social groups that you will want to check out.  You don’t need a boat to have fun with these groups.

HYC has a long tradition of outstanding race management and has received the prestigious St. Petersburg Trophy twice.  In addition to conducting club and area regattas, HYC typically hosts two or three national and international racing events each year.  Becoming involved with the race committee and race management at HYC is a rewarding way to contribute to the sailing community.
