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 their designs have in fact become 'classic'.
The Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta continues to encourage and welcome Classic GRP boats (Classic Plastic) that were 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, Bristol, and Newport. This year's Corinthian Classic will be held August 11th & 12th.
A 2018 CRF MK II Classic Rating Formula will be required for all boats and we will assist anyone without a rating to easily secure a certificate. CRF site
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 includes mooring (First Come, First Serve)
Unsurpassed social events
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.
