Racing

CYC organizes weeknight racing from April through September and several weekend regattas totaling over 100 days of racing each year.  

Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle is the Organizing Authority for more racing than perhaps any other club in the nation racing out of two venues: Lake Washington and Puget Sound.  

Our racers come from levels of experience from first time racers to those who have won world championship and Olympic sailing events.
