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 first cruise of the season will take the Corinthian fleet to Maine the week of July 27 to August 2.
We’ll rendezvous in the Old Port area of Portland, Maine, and will kick off the week with a special event at the Portland Museum of Art and the Commodore’s Party. During the balance of the week, we’ll explore Casco Bay. Stops will include Potts Harbor in Harpswell, Snow Island, Sebasco Harbor and the Basin, and finally, Great Diamond Island.
The second cruise is slated for August 16 to August 21. We’ll begin and end in Marblehead Harbor. The cruise itinerary takes us through Massachusetts Bay and out to Provincetown for a two day stop. Along the way we’ll be visiting Scituate, Provincetown, Plymouth and Cohasset.
Planning for the 2020 cruises is well under way, and arrangements with a number of marinas and yacht clubs we’ll be visiting have been tentatively made. We are living in uncertain times due to the restrictions on travel and social activities made necessary as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic. 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. When this information becomes available we’ll be sharing final versions of the 2020 cruise itineraries along with information on reserving dock space and moorings at the cruise stops. In the meantime, we’ll be providing updates on the current tentative cruise plans.
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.
