The clear blue waters of Lake Simcoe produce some of the best sailing conditions in the Great Lakes Region. Hawkestone Yacht Club (HYC) is a member owned private yacht club located on the northern shore of Lake Simcoe.
About 65 sailboats are moored Mediterranean style in a private cove like setting nestled in the rolling hills below the quaint town of Hawkestone. From HYC you are able to view the surrounding lake, the private beach and picnic area, and sailing yachts of all sizes and makes. A pleasant walk of about 5 minutes inland will take you to the Hawkestone General Store for all the basic supplies from worms to great ice cream.
As well as being member owned, we also operate on a community ownership
philosophy. The efforts and contributions of members have made the club the
great place that it is today. Each season we boast a full social calendar of
member driven innovative on shore events, cruise rendezvous and friendly in-club races. As well as in-club racing and cruising regattas, HYC members have been active participants of Lake Simcoe’s sailing community since 1965.
If you are or want to be sailing Lake Simcoe, there has never been a better time to make HYC your home port!
