Club House and Grounds

The HIYC club house was completed in 1978 through the careful planning of club members.  The house features a generous great room with a stone fireplace and hardwood floors, a full kitchen and restrooms.  Outside, a large covered deck overlooks the harbor, and below a second fireplace is available.  The Board room and trophy room are also located inside the house.

The club house is available for use by members and guests of a member who is present.  Members may also reserve the house for private events such as weddings, office retreats, etc.  Please contact our house chairman Howard Toole for additional information on house reservations.  Please note, house reservations may be made by HIYC members only.

On the HIYC grounds you will find Irene's garden near B Dock and Betty's garden near C Dock.  These serene spaces are named in honor of the wives of founding members Ross Bryan and Jack Caldwell, respectively.  Spaces for members, guests and crew to park cars are located at the entry to HIYC, and along the driveway immediately in front of the club house.  Additionally, the newly-paved "North Lot" offers car parking and storage for dry-sailed keel boats.  Members may also store trailers at the top of the hill, behind the club house.  There is also storage for dinghies, and a boat hoist for small boats in the "South Lot."  Please note that keel boats are not permitted to use the hoist as they are over the service weight limit, and water at the base of the seawall is shallow.  There is a launching ramp and a holding tank pump-out available for larger boats.  Finally, the famed (or infamous) "Tiki Hut" is situated on the southern end of the South Lot, near the D-Dock and courtesy dock.  This is a popular gathering place for many of the HIYC members.
