Founded in 1934, The Corinthians is a non-commercial membership association of over five hundred amateur yachtsmen and women (beginners and experts). Our primary objectives are to promote sailing, to encourage good fellowship among yachtsmen afloat and ashore, and to introduce non-boat-owning amateur sailors and boat-owners needing crew.
After 80 years, the organization promotes membership among yachtsmen at all levels of skill and experience – from the circumnavigator to enthusiast, and endeavors to offer opportunities for growth in seamanship and camaraderie. We do not have a clubhouse…however, we do have a widely recognized flag, which we fly with pride. Founded in New York City, we have grown to include fleets in Annapolis, Philadelphia, Mystic, New England, and Maine.
Activities vary from cruises-in-company to races and events on the association and fleet level which will appeal to all members with a wide range of experience. Of equal value are the informal opportunities to sail with other members on both sides of the Atlantic through our association with the London-based Little Ship Club (founded in the early forties by a rag tag group of sailors who led the Dunkirk evacuation from France). Meeting in collegial company with fellow sailors flying The Corinthians burgee in a new port or a familiar anchorage has become a passion for all members. For membership inquiries, please contact email@example.com.
Look for our fleet of 45 power and sail during the Windjammer parade of schooners as they sail up Somes Sound on August 2, 2016. Proudly flying the Corinthians courtesy flag and the Acadia Centennial burgee, our fleet proudly salutes 100 years of park preservation and history. The Corinthians plans to purchase Centennial merchandise and a custom-imprinted blanket to be given away to each skipper and crew on the cruise.
