Hilo Yacht Club
While the Club’s website suggests it formed in 1913, the January 20, 1897 issue of Pacific Commercial Advertiser noted, “The past week has recorded another innovation in Hilo the organization of the Hilo Yacht Club ….” The original site of the Club was the CC Kennedy home situated near Reeds Bay.
By 1919 the growth and success of the Club prompted members to begin a drive to replace the Kennedy house. Having lost the lease, the Hilo Yacht Club, in 1939, moved, again, relocated and renovated the Keaukaha home of Frank Harlocker, on 2.84-acres.
