Hanken Yacht Club


Do you like sailing or do you want to experience the beautiful Finnish archipelago? Or have you always wanted to try sailing? Join Hanken Yacht Club!

Hanken Yacht Club r.f. was founded in 2014 and is the official yacht club of Hanken and the student union.

The association has its own sailing yacht, an H-boat called s/y Lilla Skumpan. She is located at Nyländska Jaktklubben (NJK) at Koivusaari in Lauttasaari (Helsinki). The boat can be used by all association members.

Together the members also take care of the boat. That means that as a member you have the possibility to learn to paint the hull of a fiberglass boat as well as see how a 27 feet boat is launched.

Traditionally Lilla Skumpan also takes part in Hangöregattan, a relaxed regatta organized in Finland’s southernmost city, Hanko (or Hangö in Swedish). Come and cheer for team HYC or find the boat at the dock and come party with us!

Additionally, the association aims to organize other sailing events together with for example Aalto’s KY-Sail and Åbo Akademi’s MK Yacht Club.
