This year's Corinthian Classic (www.corinthianclassic.org) will be held August 9th & 10th.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Join us for some great sailing, a pig roast and live entertainment Saturday night.

The CCYR offers three categories of participation:

  1. The "Panerai fleet" is open to sailing yachts with a minimum waterline of 20', made of wood aluminum or steel, designed and built using original methods and materials and designed on or before 1970 and built using original materials and methods.
  2. The "Classic GRP"- (Glass Reinforced Plastic) - is for yachts built of fiberglass or yachts that have not been modified and have been designed during the CCA era on or before 1970.
  3. The "Spirit of Tradition fleet" is for those yachts designed with the intent to evoke traditional clean classic lines above the water line and modern underbodies below. Also yachts that do not fall into the other classes, i.e. boats that have been modified.
