Description: 

The Mayor’a Cup Regatta is VSC’s designated race in the Cannon/Goose Series of the Lake Champlain Championship Series.

Known as “the” sailing tradition of Lake Champlain, the Mayor’s Cup Regatta returns July 9th as the signature event of the popular 4-day summer festival in Plattsburgh, NY. Attracting sailboats from throughout the northeast and Quebec, racers face a “no guts, no glory” competition known, since 1978, for its spirited fun and, sometimes, high-seas adventure. When skippers who compete around the world claim Lake Champlain as “sailing at its best,” we know our waterfront treasure is no fool’s gold!

The Rotary Cup goes to the over all winner of the Cruising Division, with the Mayor's Cup going to the over all winner of the Racing Division. There will be prizes and trophies for all divisions.

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 at LCYC!

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.
