One Design Racing

The Corinthian Yacht Club is an active and vibrant club for the avid One Design sailor. Dinghy sailing on the Delaware River may well have been originated right here at the Corinthian Yacht Club sometime around the turn of the 19th century. The Club’s docks and waterfront facilities support a fleet of J/22s, Vanguard 15s and Lasers, as well as two club owned Flying Scots. Races are held weekly on Wednesday nights throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons and run in accordance to USSA rules. 
 
We also sponsor a Junior Sailing Camp each summer for one to six weeks where youngsters receive professional instruction in Optimists dinghies, 420s, and a Flying Scot. From there they can join the Wednesday night racing on a V15, crew on a J/22 or graduate into the big boat fleets and cruising on the Chesapeake Bay.

During the week in the spring and fall you will find Drexel University, University of Pennsylvania and Villanova University sailing teams practicing in their club 420s and FJ’s preparing for their weekend intercollegiate races

If you are new to the sport we encourage you to contact the fleet captains and let them know you are interested in sailing. They will be glad to introduce you to some of the sailors and discuss ways for you to become involved in our fleets. Check out our Youtube channel for videos of live races!
