Our fall workday, Saturday October 13th, Start is at 0800, and finish with lunch, right after our annual meeting. All members are expected to attend.

Also there are a number of dinghies, kayaks, and paddleboards at the club that must be removed before workday - it is too chaotic to move these boats during workday.

Thanks for your help, and we look forward to seeing you Saturday!

LCYC has always run on volunteer power—it saves money, but more importantly, it helps us get to know each other better and increases our sense of ownership and community at the club. We now have a web-based sign-up process to help increase our volunteer power.

Click the "Volunteer" link in the above toolbar—projects range from helping with burger burns, to painting, to carpentry, to gardening and much more. You’ll find the contact info for the BOG member responsible for the project, a project description, number of volunteers needed, and skills needed. We have a lot to get done, and it won't happen without you!

Questions? Contact Commodore Joss Besse, 802-434-3764 or besse@gmavt.net



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.

Full and half-day sessions are offered for all ability levels over an eight week period each summer. All of our Instructors are US Sailing certified and have extensive experience. We also have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!

Lake Champlain is a beautiful venue for sailboat racing, with excellent competition, friendly competitors, and great participation. 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.
