The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia is a participatory club of individuals and families with an interest in sailing, sailboat racing, cruising, boating and trap shooting. Conveniently located on eleven acres of beautiful Delaware River waterfront in Essington, PA. Corinthian is one of the oldest continuously operating yacht clubs in the country.

Members enjoy three seasons of one-design club racing on Lasers, J22s, Vanguard 15s and Optimists; seasonal trap shooting; semi-annual sailboat cruises on the Chesapeake Bay or one of the Club's many social and educational events. The Club also has a vigorous junior sailing program and learn-to-sail classes.  The Club is host to college sailing teams from Drexel and Villanova Universities and the University of Pennsylvania.  The Main Line Scholastic Sailing Association was developed five years ago with over twenty-five schools now participating in Spring and Fall programs, with 70 students in each program at CYCoP.

Privileges of the club include access to the dining room and porches, parlors, outdoor deck, locker rooms and recently rebuilt swimming pool. The waterfront services include docks with water and electricity, and a number of moorings and slips.  The Club also owns 4 Flying Scots and several canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards for member use.  Members enjoy reciprocity with the Yachting Clubs of America, as well as several other select clubs.  Boat storage is available on the property.
