At the time
the City of Lighthouse Point was being developed, one of the developers
decided to build a yacht club, which is now Lighthouse Point Yacht and
Racquet Club. Many changes have taken place sine that time.
Originally, there was one dock, the East Dock, which could accommodate
20-25 yachts. A West Dock was later built with slips on either side.
The original dock was then moved fifty feet toward the west to allow slips
on either side. The canals on both sides of the club were dredged
and docks were built along the banks. Now, 78 yachts can be
Point Yacht Club, Inc. was created within the confines of the Lighthouse
Point Yacht and Racquet Club. In 1967, letters were sent to the
members of the LPY&RC asking whether they would be interested in forming a
yacht club wholly independent of the LPY&RC and having a new organization
dedicated to yachting and promoting boating safety. At the formation
meeting, the one hundred founding members unanimously agreed that the name
would be The Lighthouse Point Yacht Club, Inc. At the conclusion of
the founders meeting, the officers decided to hold their monthly meeting
on the third Thursday of each month. Now we meet on the first and
third Thursday of each month. In subsequent years, the number of
members was increased to a limit of two hundred.
In 1990, in an
effort to distinguish themselves further and demonstrate its total
independence from the LPY&RC, the board changed the club's name to LPYC
Corinthians, Inc., which it continues to use to this day.
The first year
of the Club's existence was most successful. The club cruised to
Francis Lanfords, Pier 66, Ocean Reef and Plantation. During that
same year, the Club Planned its first fleet review and reception, as well
as the first Commodore's Ball.
received its charter on July 31, 1967. Lighthouse Point Yacht Club,
Inc was granted its charter and inducted into The International Order of
the Blue Gavel on May 27, 1978.
In early 2018,
the Corinthians started accepting members who were not members of the
Lighthouse Point Yacht Club. By the end of 2018, the Corinthians
severed ties with the Yacht Club. They now meet in various local
venues, restaurants, and homes for the gatherings. Cruises continue
to visit many marinas in the South Florida area.
