All about Royal Corinthian Yacht Club

A still morning on the Crouch

A still morning on the Crouch

If you sail into Burnham on Crouch from the North Sea, the first building you will see on the starboard side will be a large conspicuous white block, which must have been a considerable shock to the inhabitants of the town when it was built in 1931.

This is the Grade 2* listed building whose architect, Joseph Emberton, understood about wide windows, panoramic views and big balconies. The bar stretches the length of the lounge and the dining room on the first floor can accommodate cosy small groups or large formal gatherings. You can lunch with the sailing all around you, or dine with the setting sun as a backdrop. It's even possible to hold your wedding ceremony here.

Members can take a mooring opposite the Clubhouse and go aboard at all states of the tide using our launch at the end of the pontoon. There is a crane for the easy launching of most club boats. You can choose to belong to a highly competitive one design class or cruise contentedly at the weekends; your children can join the Corinthian Otters and enjoy the thrills and spills of estuary sailing.

You can park your car or your dinghy or your trailer and walk into the Clubhouse where the Staff will be available to make your weekend an enjoyable one. The Club Office is open daily and the staff will be pleased to answer your queries.
