Ahoy, sailors and power boaters!
Corinthian Cruising provides opportunities for all members who want to venture beyond the local buoys, be it Manchester Harbor, Boston, Maine or other New England ports. The goal is to enjoy being on the water together and visiting interesting ports of call. It’s a time to gather together with friends and family for rafting parties and social events. By cruising together, by power or sail, we support each other by sharing technical, navigational and on-water experiences.
What’s it all about
The Annual CYC Cruise is one of the highlights of the summer sailing season! It includes the unbeatable Commodore's Cruise Party and visits to interesting and historic harbors, also accessible by land. In addition to longer cruises, several weekend trips and planned activities at the club itself are part of the adventure!
Cruising is a wonderful family activity. It’s a great way to introduce your children to the fundamentals of sailing and navigation. It allows us to explore the rich history of the New England coastline and witness active marine life.
Cruising as a group offers the opportunity for experienced boaters to mentor and guide those new to cruising. It’s a great way to safely travel, regardless of experience, and share a lifetime of memories with your fellow boaters!

The itinerary includes stops in Pocasset, Cuttyhunk, Edgartown, Nantucket, Hyannis, Quissett Harbor and Marion.
While maintaining optimism about boating this summer and hope that our cruise will go forward as planned, we understand there may still be COVID restrictions in place. These restrictions may impact our onshore social gatherings. Planning for social events is being deferred until we have a better understanding of what those restrictions might be.
The good news is boatyards and harbormasters will begin taking reservations for slips and moorings in the next few months. Edgartown and Nantucket will start taking reservations in February and March, respectively.
If you are interested in participating in this year’s CYC cruise, please contact Fleet Captain, John Todd for more detailed information.

Planning for the 2021 cruises is well under way, and arrangements with a number of marinas and yacht clubs we’ll be visiting have been tentatively made. We learned last summer cruising was possible following COVID safety guidelines. A number of informal groups of Corinthians set out on the water and made passages to Maine and Massachusetts Bay. With these experiences in mind, planning for the 2021 Corinthian Cruise has begun.
Our plans are, at this time, not finalized as we are awaiting guidance provided by federal, state and local authorities to determine if and when boatyards, marinas and yacht clubs will open for the boating season. In addition, we’ll also need to consider what restrictions these venues will have in place when they do open.
Many of the marinas and yacht clubs we visit use the Dockwa App for making docking and mooring reservations. While we’re all waiting to get back on the water, now is a good time to download the App on your phone or tablet. You can search the App to learn more about the marinas we’re planning to visit before its time to reserve.
