Recognizing Bob Dill and the Iron Duck
by Craig Leweck, Scuttlebutt Sailing News
Bob Dill is the kind of guy the National Sailing of Fame needs more than Dill needs to be inducted (but he does need to be inducted), and while he sits in the vast pool of nominees, Ben Dolenc produced a film I wish all the great adventures in our sport could claim.

The 2021 Change of Watch will occur during the January Board of Governors meeting at 1830 hours on January 11, via Zoom. Incoming officers will assume their responsibilities as of this meeting. Outgoing officers will be formally recognized for their service, as COVID restrictions allow.

Minutes of this meeting, like all other BOG meetings, are available to LCYC members at: http://lcyc.info/club/management/minutes

Club

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!

Cruising

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.

The 2021 LCYC Junior Sailing Program

Lake Champlain Yacht Club has an active junior sailing program, open to all children ages 8-17. We use Optimist prams and Flying Junior dinghies for instruction and racing. Full and half-day sessions are offered for all ability levels over an eight week period each summer. All of our Instructors are US Sailing certified and have extensive experience. We also have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel 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.
