Club Update: June 8, 2020
Aloha Hilo Yacht Club Membership,

Today, Monday, June 8th, begins the phase two reopening plan for your Club.  If you are keeping up with the news these days, you’ll notice Hilo Yacht Club is following closely the phased opening plan authorized by State and Local authorities.

Swimming, the Gym, Tennis, Volleyball, and Ocean Access are open for your use and enjoyment. The only change is that you are required to make a reservation.  We are requiring reservations in order to prevent overcrowding.  You can make a reservation by calling Cheryl at the HYC office between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM Monday through Friday. 969-6663 ext. 7.

Dining at Hilo Yacht Club:
Food and beverage service begins today, Monday, June 8th, running daily from 11 AM to 5 PM.  There will be no break between lunch and dinner service. At this time we are not talking table reservations, it’s first come, first served. To call and place your food order, phones lines are open at 10:00 AM. Please call 969-6663 ext. 1.

Members ONLY at this time.

During this initial startup, the kitchen will be serving a scaled-down, value-priced menu, with daily specials. I have included the menu at the bottom of this email. The menu will change as we scale up kitchen operations. 

The HYC bar remains closed, offering a limited selection of canned and bottled beverages for your enjoyment.

The HYC indoor dining room will remain closed but the bathrooms will be open for your use. To access the bathrooms, you must enter via the Club’s front doors. No more than two people in the bathroom at a time. The bathrooms at the Pool Building will also be open for your use.

For your safety and that of our staff, we will only be offering menu items to go during the initial startup. You may call in your order by dialing 969-6663 Ext. 1 and we will call you when your order is ready. Meal pick up will be from the Ocean Lanai. You can call ahead, or order when you get to the Club.

You are free to dine on the Ocean Lanai, at the pool (with a reservation) or any of the other seating areas on the beautiful Hilo Yacht Club property.

Seating has been modified to comply with social distancing rules and, for that reason, tables and chairs must not be moved. Additional seating has been provided in shady spots on the Club grounds and you are free to enjoy your meals and beverages in those locations.

Mahalo for your patience and understanding as we work to adapt to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. We are trying to balance your safety, and that of our staff with access to your Club, dining, and amenities.

Looking forward to seeing all of you back at Hilo Yacht Club very soon!
