Corinthian Yacht Clubs of the World

We certainly have our favorite, but it turns out that many clubs around the world are named for the Corinthian ideal of amateur sportsmanship. We have found 39 of them so far!

Corinthian Yacht Club of San Francisco
Founded in 1886, Corinthian Yacht Club is more vital today than ever!
Royal Corinthian Yacht Club
Since its foundation at Erith on the Thames in 1872, the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club has produced many fine amateur helmsmen and women, including National and International Champions of all ages, upholding its earliest objective; to encourage Amateur Yacht Sailing. Members of the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club have been the innovators of many ideas, now accepted as standard. Its challenge to the London Sailing Club in 1893 was the forerunner of Burnham Week and it adopted its first One Design Class way back in 1895.
Corinthian Yacht Club Marblehead, Mass

Founded on July 7,1885, to promote sailing of small boats with a youthful and competitive spirit. Initially the boats were craft of 16 to 30 feet, smaller than the yachts of the day, but today the members sail yachts of all sizes, enjoy cruising as well as racing and own power as well as sailing craft.

This is the first "Corithian" yacht club in the US.

London Corinthian Sailing Club
The friendly London sailing club. Why not drop into our clubhouse bar on the Thames? Meet us and discover what we can offer you. Tuesday evenings are ideal. (Member Lesley Stanford visited and was very welcomed) We are a friendly riverside club based on the Thames at Linden House, Upper Mall, Hammersmith. We offer dinghy sailing on the Thames and yachting on the Solent and further afield, as well as an active social side including our popular Tuesday 'Club Nights'. We are an RYA-approved offshore training establishment and provide a full training programme, including RYA theory and practical courses for competent crew, day skipper, coastal skipper and yachtmaster. The club was established as the Corinthian Sailing Club in 1894, by a group of sailing enthusiasts who launched their boats from Bell Steps, beside the Black Lion pub and close to the Hammersmith and Chiswick border. In the early years the members were all men and used to meet at each other's homes to discuss sailing matters and racing. It was then discovered that a new member owned a pub closer to the City and meetings were promptly convened there instead. According to club records it appears that alcohol and sailing are constant companions throughout the club's 100+ years of life!

The name ‘Seawanhaka’ is derived from a tribe of Indians who made their home on Centre Island. Seawanhaka was founded in September 1871 aboard William L. Swan’s sloop GLANCE anchored off Soper’s Point, Centre Island. As first officially recorded, there were twelve founders. By acclamation, Swan was elected Seawanhaka’s first Commodore. A half model of GLANCE hangs above the arch as one exits the main room of today’s Clubhouse, while private signals of the original members crown that exit. The new Commodore, a member of one of the area’s foremost families, served for many years as the Corinthian organist and choirmaster at the First Presbyterian Church in Oyster Bay. He was a round, jolly man who encouraged sailing tests among the oyster fishermen and enjoyed gamming with friends and singing well into the night aboard GLANCE, a bottle of spirits handy on the main saloon table the while.

Babbacombe Corinthian Sailing Club (UK)
Babbacombe Corinthian Sailing Club was founded in 1935 with Oddicombe Beach being the base for its Beach Club House since that date. Soon after that time, we began to dig out our boat parking area on either side of the Club House and a first floor was built upon the original existing ground floor building which had been used as a store. Some years after this date, the Clubhouse in Fore Street, St Marychurch became the Club Headquarters, providing a base for meetings and social events which provided income to support the sailing functions.

Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club, Channel Islands
Just before Christmas in 1975, a half-dozen couples sat down together to discuss the feasibility of forming a full-service yacht club in Channel Islands Harbor. In January of 1976, the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club was established, and officially incorporated on August 17, 1976, with founding Commodore Floyd Woodcock at the helm. PCYC officers, committee heads and club members routinely appeared at government offices in pursuit of our aim - a place in the county plans for a clubhouse and marina. We now enjoy the fruits of their efforts in our very own clubhouse alongside the Pacific Corinthian Marina. The Marina is a limited partnership made possible through the investments of our members, with the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club as the General Partner. The clubhouse and the marina were dedicated in January of 1985, ten years after the first meeting was called to explore the possibility of just such a clubhouse and marina. On February 4, 1989, we celebrated our 13th birthday by burning the mortgages on both the clubhouse and the marina!
South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club
In 1932 a hearty group of people sharing yachting and social interest founded the South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club. They launched their handmade boats over the sands of Santa Monica Beach and had their membership meetings in ocean-front cabins. The facilities were minimal, the enthusiasm, great. A few years later the club obtained a small meeting room located on the Santa Monica Pier. The popular boats of the day were Snipes and Six Meters. These were launched by crane at the end of the pier. By the late 1930's, SCCYC had joined the Southern California Yachting Association and sponsored the first Pacific Coast Championship Regatta in Santa Monica Bay. I

We are probably best known for our sponsorship of the Oregon Offshore Race, the CYC Summer Evening Series and the Six Pac.

Lake George Corinthian Yacht Club
For more than 25 years, the Lake George Corinthian Yacht Club has been a successful sailing, sailboat racing and social club operated by volunteers — people who love to sail and enjoy sharing their love of the sport. Whether you own your own boat, crew for a friend or just enjoy a day on the water, there’s a place for you in the Corinthians. Most of our members sail keelboats in the 22- to 32-foot range, and require from three to five people as crew. Experienced or not, there’s always room for an extra hand on board. Education is a central part of our reason for being; whether it’s our formal clinics or the knowledge casually passed from skipper to crew, joining the Corinthians is a great way to learn to sail and race!
Clyde Corinthian Yacht Club
Although mainly Clyde-based, the Club keeps a strong cruising presence on the West Coast with many boats based in the havens around Loch Shuna. One of the highlights of the season for local boats of all sizes is the annual Round Shuna Pursuit Race, which attracts one of the largest fleets to be found in our waters, all contending with unusual enthusiasm to win the prize. One may think that after all this is normal enough, until it is revealed that the prize takes the form of a case of champagne..... An additional point of interest about this race is that the Isle of Shuna may be left on either hand: the point in question is usually somewhere off Toberonochy, where the different persuasions meet - head-on. Fortunately for the losers there is consolation - the winner is only allowed to keep one bottle of the bubbly - the consumption of the remainder must be arranged for on the spot. Thus all may sail home afterwards in true Corinthian good humour. (There is some silverware and other prizes, too.)
Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club

It is the only club in Cowes that can provide marina berths and shoreside boat storage facilities to its members. The club is situated on the west bank of the River Medina, approximately half a mile south of the harbour entrance. The approach to the club by sea is made by turning to starboard on passing the southernmost pontoon of West Cowes Marina, when the club pontoons will be seen directly ahead.

One is combined with the Summer Picnic/Uncruise and the other with the Christmas Party.

Unqua Corinthian Yacht Club,
 Unqua Corinthian Yacht Club, located in Amityville, New York on the Great South Bay, is a private membership club dedicated to activities including day boating, cruising, competitive sailing, recreational and competitive swimming, and fine dining and entertainment. On September 7, 1900, the yacht club was incorporated, and on November 12, 1900 received the blessing of the (New York) Supreme Court. John Ireland solved the first formidable problem of "where to build the club" by generously donating the original land. Then, spring 1901, the present clubhouse was constructed with a large central hall and porches on three sides. To reach the club from Ocean Avenue, trees were laid as a base for a wagon road over the mud and grass of the salt marsh. There was also a boardwalk for people on foot, and a pipeline for the club's water (which nearly boiled under the summer sun by the time it reached the club).
