About The Club

The Club welcomes all seeking a sociable, riverside lifestyle and a range of boating activities within easy reach of the rest of Essex, the East Coast and London with a regular train service from Liverpool Street.

When you visit the Clubhouse you will find all three floors of this Grade 2* listed building have their own balconies with panoramic views .  The bar on the ground floor serves a full range of drinks and excellent, reasonably priced food – it is informal, a place to relax and make friends.  It buzzes with social and sailing events at the weekends – a perfect spot for that evening drink enjoying the sunset after a day on or by the water.   The elegant dining room on the first floor is ideal for celebrations of all sorts and is a popular venue for romantic weddings.  It is also an impressive space for business meetings and presentations.  The top floor has members’ bedrooms with views across the Crouch to the wetland area for birds on the opposite bank and as far as the Thames.

We offer a friendly introduction to watersports for all ages and, for those with sailing experience, a full racing programme in a wide range of One Design fleets plus a friendly Cruiser fleet of sailing and motor boats.  The wide, stable pontoon has space for launching dinghies and for larger boats to lie alongside.

Perched right on the top corner of the building is the Race Box where regular weekend races are started and finished with a sound signal and flags.  The Royal Corinthian has a long history of successful, competitive one design racing and we are an RYA accredited sail training centre.  The Corinthian Otters are a popular club in their own right for those from the ages of 7-18 to learn all aspects of sailing in a safe environment and go on to success and, usually, an enjoyment of life on the water for the future.  There are various Club boats available for charter by individuals and a 707 Fleet for your Corporate Functions and team building.

We hope you enjoy seeing what we offer on our website and in person – please ring the Office to make a date to visit the Club. You can park your car or your dinghy on the land behind the Club or keep your boat on a Club mooring.  The Club Office is open daily and the staff will be pleased to answer your queries.
