Harbor Info

Special Anchorage Area - The club obtained from the U.S. Coast Guard the designation of our mooring field as a Special Anchorage Area, and it is so noted on the charts. This designation merely means that boats moored in the SAA are not required to show a light at night. The outer limit of the SAA runs from Collymer Point on the north to the eastern point of Allen Hill on the south.

The Ledge - Those using the harbor for the first time should make special note of the boundaries of the rocky ledge at the outer edge of mooring area. Note that it is wide as well as long. If unsure of the boundaries, have a knowledgeable member point them out.

Club

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.

Cruising

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.

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 typically have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!
