Welcome to The Corinthians

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 still concerns itself with sailors at all levels of skill and experience – from circumnavigator to enthusiast, and endeavors to offer opportunities for growth in seamanship and comradery.

Membership in Our Association

The Corinthians are a unique group of people who have an abiding interest and passion in boats, sailing, and things nautical. 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, Mystic, New England, and Philadelphia.

Activities Afloat and Ashore

Activities vary from cruises-in-company, races and events on the Association and Fleet level and 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, or meet with fellow sailors flying The Corinthians flag in a strange port or a familiar anchorage.
