New Castle looks like a possibility.

There seem to be many sailing clubs along the Delaware River, but I only saw one other that has its own fleet - Corinthian Yacht Club. I doubt I caught all of them, so if anyone is aware of other clubs that have their own fleet, that would be much appreciated.

Also, any comments on Corinthian would be appreciated.

Thanks again.
Philadelphia Corinthian is a nice club. I wouldn't want to keep too big a oat there, but they have their little fleet and they definitely do the weds evening races. I believe they also have classes for kids. Angus the dockmaster is a a good guy -- knows a ton of stuff. As I recall, it was not super cheap (like some yacht clubs are) but the clubhouse is gorgeous. Don't know about simply chartering there -- most clubs require you to do the whole membership thing. Suggest you stop in and ask for Angus (he'll probably know more than the club manager).
