Sailing Hawaii

Greetings,

A friend and I are traveling to Honolulu July 1 - July 8, 2007. We are interested in doing some sailing while we are there.

I'm an intermediate sailor with experience on the Great Lakes both racing and cruising. My friend is a beginner, but has been sailing several times.

We are looking for suggestions for either chartering a boat or just going out with someone from a local yacht club. I understand that WYC has a casual Friday evening race. We'd definitely be interested in that if anyone has an opening for crew.

Many thanks.

Thank you for your assistance. I had done that prior to posting and have already contacted a few advertisers for more information on their service offerings.

What I'm looking for from the sailing community are experienced sailors that may have done the same thing. They may have recommendations on the "definitely would do again" and the "avoid at all costs" scenarios.

Thanks for your time.
Moth

camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough
There is NO chartering in Hawaii except captained charters as far as I know.

On the Ala Wai canal (adjacent to Waikiki), you'll find the Hawaii Yacht Club and the Waikiki Yacht Club. The people are very nice at both places. WYC is bit...I don't know...more formal, I guess (as formal as you get in Hawaii). The HYC is more of a working club. The beer can races are, indeed, on Friday nights. My suggestion is to email the club and indicate that you are looking to catch a ride with someone. Ask if they can assist you in finding a skipper willing to take you along and go from there. If you don't hear anything from them, visit the club at various times during the week. Chat with someone working on their boat and see what comes up. Either way, I would recommend eating at the HYC--they have fantastic food.

Have a great time!

wildcard is an unknown quantity at this point
If I should happen to still be home, I'll take y'all. I never know where I'll be when so I cant make any solid plans but I am headed back to HI on Monday.

I have found that bareboating is impossible. For the one trip that we had in mind, I would not want to do it bareboat. I certainly do not feel qualified to take someone else's boat on unknown waters to trek between the islands. We were hoping that we could get something that we could use in a bay type of setting... but maybe a calm yet breezy bay in Hawaii doesn't exist. LOL Never been there, so have no idea!

Wildcard... what an offer!! We may just have to take you up on that! We are currently in the process of arranging for a skippered Catalina 42. The plan is to spend at least 2 days on that boat. Our preference would be for the week, but that seems to be cost prohibitive at this point. I'd have to take a second mortgage!

I have been in contact wth both WYC and HYC. Both have indicated that they do have casual races however getting into the club area isn't like it is up here where you just push the button and say "I'm here to race". So.. if anyone wants to provide a name for me to drop at the gate.... FEEL FREE! Just send me a PM.

Thanks to everyone for the information so far!!
