Corinthians is a separate organization within the
Lighthouse Point Yacht &
Racquet Club (LPYRC) that promotes social activities related to
recreational boating and general fun. The Corinthians has over 130 members
from all walks of life, and a rich history of social and boating
Some members are involved for the socialization, others for the organized
activities. All benefit from the social networks, friendships, and fun.

“The LPYC Corinthians, Inc. promotes social activity among the members,
such as cruises, dinners, dances, parties and other forms of

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE,
The time has come for all good men and women
to come to the aid of their country or in this case the Corinthians
of LPYRC. We have all enjoyed great times, both at the club and on
the water, made new friends and said goodbye to those who have left
us all too soon. We've all complained about one thing or another but
the experience of being a Corinthian is one we have been proud of
and one that we have never regretted. Now after 50 years of making
memories the very existence of our organization is being threatened
by a lack of volunteers for leadership roles. On the positive side,
I have 19 very capable volunteers to fill all of the Board positions
and non Board positions. We are in need of a Rear Commodore and a
Fleet Captain in order to keep our organization going into the
second half of ‘our century.’
The Rear Commodore is a three year
commitment to the club and the Fleet Captain is a four year
commitment that gives an individual plenty of time to learn the
ropes. Or, you can volunteer to be our Cruise Director, same
responsibilities but with no commitment to the four year term. You
can decide that at the end of your year as Cruise Director.
Accepting one of these positions does not
leave you high and dry and alone to carry out these
responsibilities. Past officers are available to assist you in the
position and many board members, as well as general members, have
generously offered to assist you with your responsibilities.
If you have any interest, please call at
Leslie Baron at 781–258-3119, to set up an informal discussion about
Corinthian members and/or their family members or associates
shall not use their membership, their access to Corinthian rosters,
Corinthian mailing list or email addresses for their personal or
business gain. Nor shall they solicit business at Corinthian events
including cruises. Any violation of the above will be handled
according to the Bylaws Article ll, Section 13."
