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.
OBJECTIVES OF THE CLUB
“The LPYC Corinthians, Inc. promotes social activity among the members,
such as cruises, dinners, dances, parties and other forms of
entertainment, and fosters a spirit of camaraderie among its members.
In addition, the Club shall:
(a) foster the art of seamanship and promote
boating, sport fishing, and other allied marine activities,
(b) engage in
such charitable activities coincidental to boats and boating, such as its
members may decide, and
(c) provide educational programs for its members
in areas of seamanship and marine activities”.
The Corinthians is a very active club that offers a wide range of
activities for all recreational boaters, those interested in boating
(past, present, future), as well as non-boaters. These activities include
cruises to Florida and Bahamian marinas, informal/formal social
activities, and even cruises for non-boaters. In total, there are over 15
organized cruises, 3 formal and 7 informal social events, and 23 informal
Thursday evening social gatherings at the LPYRC.
Excerpts from The Commodore's Speech at
the Ball, December 2016
out at you I see a room filled with people who over the years have
given so much to this club and have contributed to making it what it
is today. Strong and vibrant!
Being your Commodore is
quite an honor and being the Commodore who will bring in the start of
our 50th anniversary as a club just adds to it. The support that comes
from all of you is vital in making this year successful and we are
already off to a great start. Knowing that I can count on so many of
you to celebrate this milestone with me gives me great pleasure and I
am committed to making this year one filled with happy memories.
Achieving the extraordinary is not something that every club reaches
but the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club Corinthians have not only achieved
that goal, but has exceeded it. We are a great bunch of people who
enjoy the friendships we have made over the years with fellow
Corinthians. Whether it’s a boating trip, our Thursday night happy
hours, or one of our fun-filled membership dinner parties, we enjoy
being with one another. Even through tough times, we act like family.
For some of you who don’t know this, three years ago I was quite ill
and so many Corinthians made sure I had food in the house, meals
prepared, errands run. We look after each other. Just seeing the
appreciation on Fritz Nordmann’s face when you visit him, or the tears
in Vito DeNardo’s eyes every time we went to see him in a rehab
hospital or the support and love we gave Bonnie when Troy passed away.
These are just a few reasons why I find it’s easy to give back to a
club that gives us so much enjoyment and encouragement. We are a
family and to be the Commodore of such a great group of people is a
privilege for me. Our club is special, but only as special as its
members – you! So when I chose the theme for this year, it just wasn’t
only the Corinthian’s achievements that I find extraordinary, it’s
also its members.
BULLETIN BOARD NOTICES:
NEW Corinthians Cruise Policy
approved by the Board of Governors
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
(Future) Commodore's Cruise to Antarctica
