LCYC is a member of US Sailing's MVP Program

The MVP program provides LCYC members with discounted membership dues to US Sailing and, for every club member who joins (or renews and existing membership), LCYC gets cash credits which can be used to offset the cost of US Sailing training programs and other products and services. As the National Governing Body for the sport of sailing, US Sailing’s mission is to provide leadership for the sport of sailing in the United States. Particularly if you are a racing sailor, you should strongly consider being a member of US Sailing as they provide the underlying support for our sport (e.g. Racing Rules, National PHRF database, Race Management training, Sailing Instructor training, Safety at Sea seminars, etc.). Go to the link below and select Lake Champlain YC to join or renew on line and you will automatically get the $10 dues discount. Also, don't forget to sign up for your subscription Sailing World magazine as well.

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.
