HYC's Yachting CommitteeAdd Content...

Cruising Galveston Bay & Beyond

It’s all about getting out on the water and having fun. The Yachting Committee works with other HYC groups to arrange daysails, raftups and overnight cruises to various destinations. Our goal is to get members of all ages and all boating interests out on the water as often as possible and to provide opportunities for HYC boaters to develop friendships with other HYC boaters.

We really want to encourage family sailing. Nothing is better than watching our children and other family members experience the pleasure of water and wind as well as the self-esteem that comes from being able to handle a boat.

There is nothing you have to join and no dues to be paid. Just come on out and play. For daysails and raftups, you don’t even need to make a reservation, just show up and enjoy. For cruises, you will need to make a slip reservation, but we make that process easy.

If you’re new to cruising on Galveston Bay, fellow HYC members will help you with navigation and local knowledge. Cruise leaders and HYC power boaters can provide help if you go astray during a cruise, and most events include a party.
