The Board of the Corinthian Yacht Club has just agreed to a special introductory dockage rate this year, for fellow members of our GB Boating Association.
The base slip rate for all boats is just $25, (plus electric, based on individual needs.) That’s one of the lowest rates we’ve ever seen in over 5 years of cruising.
We joined Corinthian last year after researching Chesapeake Bay area for long term dockage options. We’ve found it to be a good boating location for the ICW cruiser and a very family friendly facility. We wanted a covered slip at a nice place, a central location on the Chesapeake and a pool. We got all that and more with an inexpensive slip and nice grounds with many other amenities. The members are mainly Virginia and Maryland boaters so there is a lot of local knowledge. A good group of people!
This special $25 dock rate is offered as part of the clubs 2013 celebration of their 110 year anniversary. There are monthly events throughout the year so if you are considering a visit you might want to check out their calendar. Corinthian has a great location at the mouth of the Potomac River in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Like many clubs, they are looking for new members and decided to open their docks to some new boating groups this celebratory year.
Stop by for a night or stay for a while. You will find out why they call Corinthian Yacht Club the “Jewel of the Potomac.” And if you do go, you should check out the neat Maritime Museum nearby at the Solomons Island. Also put your hands on the helm wheel salvaged from a very old ironsides ship that’s located in the Corinthian clubhouse.
Please call ahead and let them know you are part of our GB Owners Association.
