The Corinthian Yacht Club was 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. The club is a full service yacht club that offers members and visiting skippers a broad range of racing events and accommodations for their stays. The racing calendars are coordinated with the other two major yacht clubs in Marblehead Harbor, the Eastern Yacht Club and the Boston Yacht Club. One design racing is facilitated through the Marblehead Racing Association and handicap racing occurs under PHRF and IMS handicapping through the Mass Bay Sailing Association .Corinthian Yacht Club can be raised on VHF channel 9 upon approach. Due to the popularity of the harbor in the summer, one should make reservations by calling ahead to 781-631-0005 and asking for the Waterfront. The Corinthian Yacht Club is the large, gray building to port as one enters the harbor. It is located on Marblehead Neck, a peninsula that forms the eastern shore of the harbor.
