30 yachts make up the Keelboat Racing Division and on average, about 15 yachts compete in any one race. Races are held every Sunday all throughout the year except June until October when races are held on every second Sunday.

With skippers and crew combined, approximately 60 people sail on race days. The fleet is divided into two divisions - those yachts less than 30 feet in length and those 30 feet or longer. Races are initially handicapped according to water line length and performance. The division has its own race officers who start races and take finish times. Several of our skippers also compete regularly in Yachting Western Australia offshore races off the metropolitan coast and blue water races to Geraldton, Carnarvon and Bunbury.

The division holds several longer races such as the Mindarie and Return, Fairway Race, Commodore's Cup, Australia Day Race, Mariners and Shepherdess Cups and Marmion Reef Race. HYC also hosts the interclub regatta, the Pot of Gold. 

Cruising in Company

For a more relaxed sailing experience, consider our Cruising in Company section. The Cruising Division is an extremely sociable, active and colourful bunch and, in addition to sailing together, they hold numerous land based activities such as progressive dinners between their yachts, annual Christmas and New Year's Eve parties and dinghy trips up the Swan River.
