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., the 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; year-round trap shooting; bi-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. Check out our YouTube channel for videos of our races!

Privileges of the club include access to the dining room and porches, parlors, outdoor deck, locker rooms and swimming pool. The waterfront services include docks with water and electricity, and a number of moorings and slips. Boat storage is available on the property.
