Start of Hot Ruddered Bum

Seasonally cool temps, clouds turning to sunshine with 10-15 kts out of the North set the perfect stage for the LCYC racing season finale. 22 boats sailed a course that took them around Juniper, down to Quaker Smith, around the Four Brothers Islands and back to the club. The day was topped off by a great apres race party with Hot Buttered Rum and munchies hosted by Jean Sievert and Ann Clark. Odinn was the Spin Class winner and Patience took the JAM class.

Viper 640 Regatta

We had 22 boats from the East Coast and Canada sail 6 races over the weekend. For a bigger assortment of pics from our official photographer Gerry Davis, check out the LCYC Facebook page.

Croatian Coast

In our final Speaker Series of the summer, Michael Kerbaugh shared his cruising adventures in Croatia last June, with photos of amazing scenery and some great stories. It was a fitting way to cap off what’s left of the summer and give all plenty to think about when planning for next year.



The Lake Champlain Yacht Club is a member-run yacht club located in a sheltered cove on the southwest shore of Shelburne Bay in Shelburne, Vermont, USA. We offer moorings, activities, and community for our members, most of whom own a sailboat or powerboat. The object of the Club is to promote and encourage boating and sailing on Lake Champlain, while emphasizing racing, cruising, and education, without financial gain. Please let us know if you are interested in membership!

About | Binnacle | Directions | History


Lake Champlain offers some of the best freshwater cruising in North America. The beautiful scenery and charming lakeside destinations make it a great place to explore. LCYC organizes several rendezvous events during the sailing season. Spontaneous cruising events also materialize throughout the season. We have a number of scheduled events planned for the summer season. Cruisers are out and about just about every weekday and weekend throughout the summer.

Full and half-day sessions are offered for all ability levels over an eight week period. All of our Instructors are US Sailing certified and have extensive experience. We have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and traveling to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!

Lake Champlain is a beautiful venue for sailboat racing, with excellent competition, friendly competitors, and great participation. LCYC features a summer-long Wednesday Night racing series, an Etchells/Sportboat series, and weekend races, several of which are part of the the Lake Champlain Championship Series. Our friends at Mallets Bay Boat Club, Royal Savage Yacht Club, and Valcour Sailing Club also offer great racing events around the lake. LCYC also hosts an annual Viper 640 Regatta.
