Lahaina Yacht Club

In 1965, at the old Anchor Cove on Front St, a small group of sailors got to drinking & talking (as sailors will) and the Lahaina Yacht Club was born. Soon a fleet of sunfish were purchased and races were taking place off of the beach next to the Lahaina Broiler. In 1967 an all-volunteer group of LYC members took a building (an old laundry) that was tumbling into the ocean and built the clubhouse at 835 Front St. There have been several renovations over the years most of the work being done by members. LYC is host to two major events. Annually we hold the Lahaina Jackpot Fishing Tournament where we have had as many as 150 boats competing for more than $20,000. Bi-annually we host the finish of the Vic-Maui Race, known around the Pacific as having the best dock parties for each yacht that completes the race.

Please visit the Lahaina Yacht Club web site for more information about the club.

Captain Bill Bones

Thanks for finding me out here on the wide internet ocean of singer / songwriters.  I am the real deal, writing the high and low tides of one sailor's life. In 1978 I earned my Coast Guard license and started a small (one boat) charter sailing company in Bellingham, WA. The business grew slowly over the years, until I advertised in SAIL magazine and expanded the business into the British Virgin Islands of the Caribbean. When the steady Tradewinds of the ever-expanding economy began to go slack in the late 90's, I had to furl sail and crank the engine of necessity called "What do I do now?" 

I Moved to Hawaii in 2002, to live the rest of my life without cold rain and snow, and earned a musical living performing for most of the dinner baot cruises, QuickSliver, Trilogy, Teralani, SV WindJammer. I dated crazy Maui women and tourists and wrote the songs on "Tiki Torch Songs" above. I was the wandering minstrel at the Whaler's Village on Maui, and then enjoyed a six year weekly gig at the World famous Pioneer Inn in Lahaina.
