It was impressive to see all of the hustle & bustle on Saturday - many thanks to all who attended work day!!
Due to the high water, there are still more items to be done. A few members are needed this Saturday May 21 at 8:30 to work on boats and docks for a couple of hours. If you can help, contact Bob Schumacher (bobschumacher at gmavt dot net or 802-238-8099) or Douglas White (802.363.3737 or svturtledance at gmail dot com.

Hello, I took this photo today to show you how high the water is at our little Yacht 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!

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.

Junior Sailing

Lake Champlain Yacht Club has a robust 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. 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!

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.
