Our club sails from Brooklyn, north of Sydney,
Australia, on the beautiful waters of Broken Bay.
The HRYC fleet comprises around 15 yachts ranging
from trailer sailers to over 40 feet. Our calendar of
events (see the latest issue of The Pennant which can be
reached from the Home
page) includes round-the-buoys racing, cruising and
social sailing activities. The club's history reaches back to 1992.
Until 2012 the Club's home base was a
restored naval ammunitions barge floating off Parsley Bay, close to
where most of our yachts are moored. This floating
clubhouse is still located at one end of
our start line, but unfortuantely no longer belongs to the
On average, races including Point Score races and
Trophy races are held about once every three weeks. For the more
serious sailors, there is also a 4 race series held between the RMYC
Pittwater and Gosford Sailing Club. Races normally lasting about 3
hours, with 2 of the interclub series races and one of our Trophy
races taking as long as 7 hours. Our courses are set around buoys laid in Cowan
Creek and Broken Bay, at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River. We have
a varied social program which includes cruising and invitation
events with other clubs. Our social events are normally on the first
Saturday each month. Each day on the water is usually followed by a
BBQ where sailors and family have a chance to renew friendships and
share the excitement of the day.
