If coming from I-89 South or North:

Take Exit 13 (it exits west only) onto I-189. After 1.3 miles I-189 ends at US Rte 7 (get into either of the two left-turn lanes). Turn left (south) onto US Rte 7. Continue south 3.0 miles to the traffic light at Bay Road (Volvo dealer will be on left). Turn right onto Bay Road. [Note that this road passes under a RR overpass of only 11 feet clearance; if this is insufficient clearance do not take this approach - continue south on US Rte 7 1.9 miles to the Village of Shelburne and the Harbor Road approach described in the directions below.] From US Rte 7 take Bay Road west 1.7 miles, passing the fishing access at the bottom of Shelburne Bay, to the stop sign where Bay Road ends at Harbor Road. The entrance to Shelburne Farms is straight ahead. Turn right (north) onto Harbor Road, go 1.2 miles to the LCYC entrance driveway on the right. This driveway is just a short way past the crest of a small hill where the mooring harbor first comes into view. The entrance is marked by a tall post with the LCYC triangular red, white, and blue burgee at the top and the address numbers 2790 below. This driveway is shared with a private residence. Directly past the residence is the LCYC property, clubhouse, and mooring harbor.

If coming from Route 7 South (or North if bypassing the RR underpass on Harbor Road):

At the south edge of Shelburne Village is a traffic light at the intersection of US Rte 7 with Bostwick Rd on the left and Marsett Rd on the right. Continue on US Rte 7 north 0.8 mile, passing Shelburne Museum, to the next traffic light at Harbor Road in the heart of the village by the Mobil station. Turn west (left if coming from the south, right if coming from the north) onto Harbor Road. Stay on Harbor Road 1.7 miles - after passing the school the road bends to the north before coming to a stop sign. The entrance to Shelburne Farms is on the left, Bay Road is on the right. Continue north on Harbor Road 1.2 miles to the LCYC entrance driveway on the right. This driveway is just a short way past the crest of a small hill where the mooring harbor first comes into view. The entrance is marked by a tall post with the LCYC triangular red, white, and blue burgee at the top and the address numbers 2790 below. This driveway is shared with a private residence. Directly past the residence is the LCYC property, clubhouse, and mooring harbor.

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!

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.
