The Lake Champlain Yacht Club store is new this year, and offers an array of shirts, hats, vests, fleece, bags and blankets. If there is something you want that is not seen, let us know and we can add it to the offering. The club receives a rebate at the end of the season based on total sales which will go towards the LCYC Sailing Instruction Programs. Get some LCYC gear for your crew or your family!

Since July 1, LCYC, like all the rest of the state, has been required to separate compostable waste (food waste) from other trash. There is a separate marked container for compostable waste outside the area where the dumpsters are located. Please when coming off your boat, separate compostable waste from all other trash and place in this container. Do not put compostable waste in the dumpster or the recycle bins. Thank you for your cooperation.

• The Etchells/Sportboat series will begin July 13th.
• The Doublehanded Race will replace the Ladies Skipper Race on July 25th.
• The Ladies Cup will be held August 1st with no onshore activities. Please refer to updated SIs coming soon. No skippers’ meeting, awards or post-racing event.
• Additional weekend racing is still being considered. Stay tuned.

Remember to wear masks on club grounds, docks, and launches, sign in at stewards’ office and do not linger on docks. Also please limit crews to family households and trusted friends groups.



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.

The 2020 LCYC Junior Sailing program has been canceled to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lake Champlain Yacht Club has an active 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 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.
