Viper 640 Regatta


Lake Champlain Viper 640 Regatta

Lake Champlain Yacht Club is hosting our fifth annual Viper 640 Regatta. This is also the final event in the Great Lakes Viper 640 Series.

Lake Champlain is a gorgeous freshwater venue sandwiched between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. We have top level race management and a really friendly club. Many club members generously provide free housing to competitors, donate their time, or run their boats for this event.

Late September on Lake Champlain offers some of the best wind and most beautiful scenery. We've hosted guest teams from Boston, Charleston, Charleston, Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, Marblehead, New England, Lake George, Long Island Sound, Newport, Ontario, Quebec, and elsewhere.

Registration requires an account on the site. If you have registered in the past, you can just login and register.

This is the registration form for our entire season, so please just choose Spinnaker for One Design.

Event fee is $120 per boat, which includes a bagel breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, a come-as-you-are buffet dinner for skipper and two crew at the clubhouse Saturday evening and post-event cheese, crackers, and hot dogs. The meal price for additional crew and guests will be $5 per breakfast and $15 for dinner.

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!

About | Binnacle | Directions | History


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.
