Regatta Housing

LCYC is hosting its first annual Viper 640 Regatta this fall, on September 27th and 28th. Our nice venue and good September winds are attracting one design racers from Maine, Long Island Sound, Marblehead, and elsewhere. We are hoping to provide member housing for as many visiting teams as we can. We have placed a few teams with local members, but we are still looking for guest rooms and couches for teams of two or three. Boats and teams will be arriving Friday afternoon (the 26th), staying that night and the following Saturday. We will be providing a bagel breakfast Saturday and Sunday, and dinner on Saturday evening.

If you are willing to put up a crew for Friday and Saturday night, we would really appreciate it! Please contact dale [at] hyerstay [dot] com or jason [at] hyerstay [dot] com if you would be willing to host a team. This is a great chance to help us grow this regatta and promote sportboat racing on Lake Champlain!

A big thanks to those who have already offered housing. We really appreciate it!



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.
