Viper 640 Regatta



Lake Champlain Viper 640 Regatta

Lake Champlain Yacht Club proudly invites you to our fourth annual Viper 640 Regatta and the New England Championships! This is also the final event in the Great Lakes Viper 640 Series.

In 2016 we had an amazing event, with eighteen boats and ten races over two days, with lots of planing runs.

This is a Viper 640-only event at a gorgeous freshwater venue sandwiched between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. We have top level race management and a really friendly club. We have lots of club members ready to offer free housing to competitors.

Late September on Lake Champlain offers some of the best wind and most beautiful scenery. We are hoping to have guest teams from Canada, Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, Marblehead, New England, Lake George, Long Island Sound, Newport, and elsewhere.

Please download the NOR for event information, and the General Information for extra stuff you might need to know about the event, the area, and local resources. We also have a document for Lake Champlain Sailing Conditions, where our regatta tactician (John Harris, Etchells Fleet 25) shares our local tips and tricks!

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.

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!
