Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta - 8/12-13, 2023
YACHTING AT ITS FINEST
Pageantry, tradition, and sheer beauty fills Marblehead Harbor early August when the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta brings glorious yachts, sailors, and fans from New England and afar.
Marblehead is a harbor steeped in proud maritime history and tradition. And so is the CYC. Whether it be Marblehead’s claim as the Birthplace of The American Navy; centuries of fishing schooners in its harbor; competition among “Letter” and “Metre” classes; or the construction and launching of the America’s Cup 12 Meters Easterner and Nefertiti, Marblehead has always been “racing classics” in one way or another.
The first of what we now call “Classic Yacht Regattas,” was held under the banner “The Empress Cup.” Started and conducted by two local boatyards in the mid-80s – Dion’s of Salem and Marblehead Trading Company -- the events were roaring successes through the mid-’90s. Ultimately, managing both the “roaring” patrons at the after-party in the yards and the litigious insurance companies became too much, and the regatta was put on hold.
A few seasons later, in 1999, the Corinthian Yacht Club brought the event back as the Corinthian Wooden Boat Regatta. However, the renaissance of wooden and classic sailing vessels was still on the horizon, and participation grew slowly. The CYC stood by the event, and in 2003 the CYC, “Foxy” Callwood from Jost Van Dyke, and over 60 gorgeous wooden boats came together for “Foxy’s Wooden Boat Regatta North”. Fearing a fate similar to The Empress Cup, things were dampered a bit, and the event then became the Corinthian Classic Boat Regatta.
From 2010 until 2018, Officine Panerai brought their Classic Yacht Challenge program to New England, and included Marblehead as a venue and the Corinthian Yacht Club as the host.
Today, the Corinthian Yacht Club continues the tradition of promoting sailing “Classics” through the Corinthian Classic Yacht Regatta which holds a prominent position within the Classic Yacht Challenge Series.
