The Royal Corinthian One Design is a unique class. Of the wooden boats that are still around, 11 still race regularly at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. It remains at the heart of the Royal Corinthian, not only bearing its name, but is a reminder of the beauty of traditional racing before the advent of fibreglass. The boats, which have been lovingly looked after over the past 80 years since they were built, are still as competitive as ever with very close racing. Visitors to Burnham on Crouch will recognise this elegant keel boat. Designed by HC Smith of the Burnham Yacht Building Company, she was introduced by the Royal Corinthian YC as a replacement class for the East Coast One-Design.
