The present Hamburger Segel-Club e.V. was founded on 7 October 1892 as the Hamburger Yacht-Club. As early as 1899, the club was one of the three largest German sailing clubs with 424 members. This was based on a broad membership spectrum of touring sailors, regatta sailors and also yacht designers such as Max Oertz. In 1926 the Hamburger Yacht-Club and the Hamburger Segel-Verein, which had previously split off, united under the present name. Since January 1, 1927, the club has been registered in the Hamburg Register of Associations. The German Admiral’s Cup winner Hans-Otto Schümann was chairman of the club between 1958 and 1999, then honorary chairman and commodore until his death in 2014.[2]

Today the HSC has 720 members[3] the area with clubhouse is located directly at the Alster in the center of Hamburg and offers with the harbor about 280 boats place.[4]
