Harbor Island Yacht Club is located on scenic Old Hickory Lake (a part of the Cumberland River waterway), just to the northeast of Nashville in Wilson County, Tennessee. HIYC was formed in 1961 by a group of sailing enthusiasts. The club has steadily grown and now has a membership of over 125 families including active, junior, and associate members.
HIYC has several fleets including a large cruising fleet, a Lightning fleet, a Laser fleet, and an Optimist dinghy fleet. We have regular regattas planned for each fleet throughout the year and have many social activities scattered throughout the year.
The purpose of our club is to promote sailing in all its branches; to help promote a code of ethics and safety for the waterways; to provide instruction in boat handling and seamanship; to form a social and activity nucleus for individuals and their families interested in yachting; to develop an active relationship with other sailing organizations; and to foster the Corinthian spirit of good fellowship.
