Happy Holidays HCYC Members! We hope you will join us on Monday, January 1st, 2018 for the Annual Commodore’s New Years Day Levée at the HCYC Clubhouse at 1pm. We’ll know more about options for crossing the harbour closer to the day, depending if water taxis are running, but Ward’s Island Ferry might be the only route across. Here is a link to the schedule http://bit.ly/1bSx5Ub. Please bring what you would like to drink and some food ... Continue Reading →

A message from Commodore John MacLean
I’m happy to report that the 2015 Annual General Meeting was a success. I’d like to thank the 40+ people who attended and contributed to a thoughtful conversation about the future of the club. Suffice to say, we all agree that we NEED TO BUILD NEW DOCKS. We are well on our way to establishing a membership committee. Also, it was suggested that we have some kind of presence at the Boat Show in ... Continue Reading →
A message from John MacLean, Commodore
I hope you are all enjoying the spring boating season. I would like to take this opportunity to let you know about some important goings on with HCYC. We need to have the clubhouse hauled out for an insurance survey this year. This is overdue and has been delayed in past years due to the expense, but we cannot delay any longer. Coincidentally, we’ve been offered the opportunity to have the exterior of the ... Continue Reading →
Ahoy there and welcome to our 40th season! Spring is at last upon us (finally). I think we can seafely say farewell to that season whose name we do not mention.

It has been an apparent whirlwind of a boating season. Here we are in late August and it feels like we just launched.
We kicked off the official boating season on June 15 with the annual Sail Past and Commodore’s Reception. This was a shared effort with the Toronto Island Sailing Club (TISC) and in concert with the Toronto Island Marina (TIM) Season Opener. We had a fantastic turn-out, opening the fleet to TIM resident non-HCYC members, with 17 boats partaking. ... Continue Reading →
On Saturday, November 10, 33 members and their guests gathered in the Green Room at PAL Place for the Annual General Meeting chaired by Commodore Nigel Napier-Andrews. The high point of the year was the completion of our new deck, he said, and we have also had an unusually good intake of new and mostly younger members thanks to the efforts of Alan Laver. More cruisers were out on the water thanks to the encouragement of Matt Phillips. Continue Reading →
After much effort from a stalwart crew of volunteers, the new deck on the shore of Long Pond across from the clubhouse is finished but for a few details. Designed by our Bosun Blaine Evans, the deck quickly grew from the ground up on the first session on Sunday, June 22. Work slowed through the summer with a few boards being added here and there by ad hoc volunteers, but picked up again with good sessions late in July and ... Continue Reading →
Nineteen members were present for the AGM and 13 proxies were received. After a healthy debate, a number of bylaw changes were proposed and were passed unanimously. They have been posted on the website. Continue Reading →
The principal change was the simplified categories of membership. The Voting Couple Category has been set aside. The Senior Voting Member (boat owning) category is now Senior Member and the Voting Member (non-boat owning) category is simply Member. Those boat owners who wish their spouse to ...
