The Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club welcomes new members, and will be very pleased to receive enquiries and applications from anyone who enjoys boating in any of its forms or, indeed, anyone who is just interested in being a member of a sociable and friendly club. Despite a membership drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds, there is no cliquishness or stuffiness about the Cowes Corinthian!
The Club’s relaxed atmosphere is complimented by its waterfront position, and the fact that it is the only Club in Cowes that has its own marina and dry storage facility for boats, the fees comparing favourably with those of marinas in Cowes. Whilst permanent berths are available for members, the Club also caters for visiting boat owners, who can stop in for free for up to three hours (so long as they buy a drink in the bar!) or who can pay very reasonable overnight berthing charges.
Membership fees are very reasonable, these being kept low by the Club’s “self help” philosophy, whereby members are happy to help around the site with launching and lifting out boats, maintaining the apron and pontoons and in organising social events and, of course, sailing and cruising events.
The Club’s marquee and Cavern can be hired for wedding or birthday parties or other social functions. The Club also hosts a number of its own social functions throughout the year.
