Corinthian Classic = Classic GRP
Posted On: April 19, 2018

When builders began working with Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) as a material, they were well aware that they were building something to last. What has transpired is that many of those yachts have been around for so many decades that heir designs have in fact become 'classic'.

The Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta continues to encourage and welcome Classic GRP (Classic Plastic) boats designed to the CCA rule - or are at least 40 years old - to participate.

The Corinthian Yacht Club of Marblehead, MA is proud to announce the 2018 Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta presented by Officine Panerai, the title sponsor of the Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge Circuit that takes place in the Mediterranean, Marblehead, Nantucket and Newport. This year's Corinthian Classic will be held August 11th & 12th.

  • The racing is done in 'Pursuit' format - unique, safe, fun - and will be sailed with NO Spinnakers

  • Long reaching legs will be emphasized and beats will be minimal

  • Reasonable entry fee and a free mooring (First Come, First Serve)

  • Unsurpassed social events

  • A 2018 CRF MK II rating certificate is REQUIRED. More info >

A good regatta happens on and off the water and you can expect that the Corinthian Yacht Club along with Panerai will put on a good show. There will be a cocktail reception during registration Friday evening; cocktails, dinner, music and fun Saturday evening, and of course, more beverages and trophies after racing Sunday

This is an event you don't want to skip. Start planning now and tell a few friends – we don't know whom we've missed. The racing will be 'low key' but it is an excellent opportunity to stretch your sea legs, put your beautiful boat on display, and mingle with those who share your passion.

Instructions to enter can be found on our website at www.corinthianclassic.org
