The Hawaii Kai Boat Club Foundation (HKBCF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
mission of the Hawaii Kai Boat Club Foundation is to support water
programs that encourage fun and safe ocean activities for youth. We
strive to be a leader in the islands for teaching children to sail and
appreciate the ocean that surrounds them. The sailing program offers
classes on the latest one design boats recognized by the International
Sailing Federation. HKBCF supports youth sailors participating in
local, national, and international sailing regattas. HKBCF supports
social networking for all members, and plays an instrumental role in the
future development of the youth sailors.
Hawaii Kai Boat Club is less than a decade old and has quickly grown to
become a leader in the islands for teaching keiki (children) to sail
and appreciate the ocean. The club is run on an almost completely
volunteer basis. The club has also been as frugal as possible, actively
pursuing and obtaining corporate donations and grants. We also utilize a
small part of a local restaurant/shopping mall on the Hawaii Kai
Marina, which is generously shared by the owners. It is truly a
grassroots organization which exists to educate our children.
club has been progressive in building a fleet of O'pen Skiff and RS
Feva sailboats, which are economical to maintain and exciting for kids
and adults to sail. HKBC has produced both North American and World
Champions and has sponsored sending youth sailors to regattas in places
including Maui, California, Florida, Bermuda, Australia, Germany, Italy,
Spain, France, and New Zealand. More importantly, the club provides
year round classes on almost every day of the week as well as weekly
sailing camps during fall, spring and summer school breaks.
The HKBC Foundation wishes
to continue to expand Hawaii Kai Boat Club's fleet, and thus its
capacity to serve local youth and adults for years to come.
