Plans are moving forward on repairs to the Club House this will include removing and replacing damaged siding with an improved material, installing new weather friendly sill @ all windows and installing an interlocking system as a decking above the south and west exposures so that these areas can be used in inclimate weather, greatly increasing the usability of the areas. Great care has been taken to be sure that an appropriate contractor can handle the task in the time frame necessary for the usual operations of the club. Please contact a member of the committee for further details or questions. As this project becomes complete others will be considered so that the CLUB benefits in areas as needed.


If interested in the Lightning District Regatta Please contact Jeff Bodkin or Scott Anderson for confirmation of dates, these may be moved to June 11 –12.


At the CSC Annual Business Meeting held on January 15th, 2004 at Royal Oaks Country Club, a By-Laws addition was approved that encourages involvement by all club members in club activities. As an all volunteer organization, without any paid staff, we depend entirely on our membership to keep the club afloat and functioning. The By-Laws change defines a minimum service requirement that has been set at 8 hours for 2004 and applies to each regular and associate membership. This requirement may be fulfilled by the member, or the member's spouse or dependents.

To assist the membership in fulfilling this requirement, projects, such as helping with Spruce-Up Day, special club regattas or social events, cleanup or special construction tasks, will be identified in our club newsletter, The Mainsheet. In addition, a new Help Wanted forum will be added to our website where requests for assistance may be posted.


The White Rock Lake Museum’s grand opening was Saturday, September 18, 2004. The museum is located inside the Bath House Cultural Center. Visitors can tour the museum, learn about the human and natural history of the lake and park, and view the documentary-style video and artwork by White Rock Lake area artists. For The Love Of The Lake is the underwriter for the White Rock Lake Museum.

The Second Saturday Shoreline Spruce-up is on going! Thousands of volunteers have been helping to keep White Rock Lake’s shoreline, park, and lake clean for more than100 consecutive months. The Corinthian Sailing Club is one of 44 groups who have adopted a portion of the shoreline and park to reduce the litter and make White Rock Lake safe and enjoyable for everyone.


The Corinthian Fleet in conjunction with the KMD association has been surveying moorings including condition and length in preparation of a long awaited realignment. This is to better facilitate ability to sail on/off moorings. And provide consideration for sailing in and out of the north canal between davits, piers.

All interested parties are urged to contact Corinthian Fleet Captain, Bob Manning or KMD association representative Warren Lyon. Also the Corinthian Fleet has just hosted its first regatta of the season. The Captains Challenge was held Saturday April 16, Conditions were light and variable (we all know how much fun that is) for the first race, and wind filled in to 4-8 out of the east/ southeast for the second and third races. 7 Boats made the event, Dave Barrett took top honors, Ken Brown and Warren Lyon finished second and Bill Wilson and Alane Capen (1 point back) took third. In an unusual Corinthian style two boats were OCS at the start for the second race.
