It’s that time of year again!! RC Signups are now live. You will need to login. Then go to the sidebar on the home page and click on the event for which you would like to volunteer. At the bottom of the page for the event just click on the “Sign up” button to sign up.

Key Points:
* All active racers are required to do RC a minimum of once every 2 years.
* On May 1 any racers with an obligation for 2024 who have not signed up will be assigned an event.
* RC is open to any and all club members. No Racing or RC experience is required. Doing RC is a great, fun way to help fulfill your annual volunteer commitment.
* For Wednesday night events your commitment is to bring a minimum of 3 people*, including yourself.
* For Weekend and E Series events your commitment is to bring a minimum of 2 people*, including yourself.
* If you are interested in doing RC for one of our singlehanded events, please contact John Harris for more details. For these races you will be in charge (there is no PRO) and will need some limited training in how to operate the MarkSetBots and run the races. We’ve had numerous newbies do this successfully and have a great time in the process so don’t be afraid to give it a try.

* Note: at least one person must be physically capable of going on to the foredeck and handling anchor duty on the Dinse

We are looking for senior stewards and stewards-in-training for the 2024 season.

Please pass along my contact information to anyone who might be interested, willing to get licensed and has the necessary experience.

Senior Stewards (Licensed Volunteers) We are continuing to build the bench of licensed volunteers to help out during the summer and, particularly, during September.

Steward-in-Training There are two openings for a 16- or 17- year old (by June 15th) who is committed to becoming a regular steward in future summers, but lacks the required number of sea days for the US Coast Guard license.

If interested, please contact:

Thinking ahead to the summer of 2024, we need 2 new stewards and have 2 openings for stewards-in-training. The stewards must be at least 17 years old by May with significant boating experience. Stewards-in-training must be at least 16 years old and demonstrate a sincere commitment to pursuing their USCG credential and joining the team in future seasons. For those who are interested in becoming a regular steward, they must begin the credentialing process in early January.

Please let me know if you have any interest in either of the steward positions or know of others who may be interested. The positions are open to members as well as nonmembers. Credentialing takes about 4 months to complete and can be done 100% online. I am also happy to walk through the process and requirements with any volunteers wishing to join the ranks of the credentialed volunteers.

LCYC 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.

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. 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.
