Corinthian Yacht Club of Edmonds


Corinthian Yacht Club of Edmonds was started in 1980 as an offshoot of the venerable Edmonds Yacht Club. Many boats have come and gone since then and we've started to keep a list of previous club boats. The club has always raced a lot, cruised together a little, and socialized some. We have one "big" race and 25 little ones, plus one two day out and back social race. We have one cruise, although we'd like to cruise more. We have two dock parties, two evening social potlucks, our change of watch dinner in November, and our awards potluck in January. We have no clubhouse, we are all volunteer, and therefore we are cheap to join.

Most of us are moored in the Port of Edmonds, but two of us are moored in Kingston and two in Shilshole. We currently have about 70 members. Over 20 boats race and cruise with us actively. Some of us have been sailing for decades, and some started sailing last year. We are a very friendly and welcoming club. We also welcome powerboaters. Although they can't race with us, they can use our reciprocal moorage privileges, cruise with us, socialize with us and volunteer as committee boat and beyond.
