LCYC moorings in Converse and Kingsland

If you haven't yet discovered them, LCYC now has two new moorings in Converse Bay for members' use.
They are located in the south of the bay in what is currently 15 ft of water. You can't miss them as the mooring ball is marked "LCYC"; the pickup says "Private". In addition, a 3rd mooring is planned for Kingsland Bay which should be available soon.

The protocol is simple. First come, first serve! You must fly your burgee to be easily identified as an LCYC vessel. In the event that someone other than an LCYC member is on the mooring you may explain that they are indeed on a private mooring and ask them to leave. If they do not, simply record the name of the boat, registration numbers and preferably a digital photo and provide that information to me.
I really don't expect this to be a problem.

Please let me know if you use the moorings and what you think of the club mooring initiative!


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.

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 and Diamond Island Yacht Clubalso offer great racing events around the lake. LCYC also hosts an annual Viper 640 Regatta (currently on pause).
