Becoming a Member of the historic and prestigious Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia is an honor, and privilige, and comes with numerous benefits. Following in the footsteps of previous Members and the Founders of the Club, CYC has a Membership history that no other local Club can offer. From the DuPont's, Widener's, Drexel's, and other Philadelphia area business tycoons, the CYC has been and continues to be the premiere Club of choice in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Because of the rich traditions of CYC and what we have to offer, becoming a Member is in high demand. The Candidate files a Membership Application Form with proposing member. The Membership Committee may assist with connecting the candidate with a proposing member. A candidate for membership in The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia needs a proposing and seconding member. Letters are written on behalf of the prospective member by proposer, seconder, and two other members. Member Proposer coordinates letters.

Proposer provides Application Packet (Membership Application Form with attached letters) to Membership Committee. Upon approval, the Application Packet is referred to the Board of Trustees. The prospective member name is posted for full membership review.
