Diamond Island Regatta (DIYC)
Hosted by Diamond Island Yacht Club and Point Bay Marina
The Diamond Island Regatta is DIYC’s designated day-race for the LCCS Cannon Series and one of the optional races for the LCCS Champlain Series.
The Diamond Island Regatta is a one race event held in the waters of Lake Champlain near the Point Bay Marina and Diamond Island. This is the third year of the race. The event will be run on the same day as the ever-popular DIYC Lobster Fest. Racers are invited to join us and may purchase tickets for the Lobster Fest at DIYC member prices. Registration for the race will be at the DIYC tent at Point Bay Marina from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM. The skippers meeting will take place at 9:30 at the tent. The race will start at 11:00 AM. Trophies will be presented to the winner of each class at an awards ceremony at the club tent following the race, just prior to the Lobster Fest dinner.
An official photographer will be present on the course to take photos of all participating boats.
Complimentary guest moorings or $1/ft (half-price) dock space are available for visiting racers on a first come first served basis courtesy of Point Bay Marina. Please contact Todd Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Point Bay at 802-425-2431 if you would like more information. There are good anchorages close to the venue in Kingsland and Converse Bays, or you can anchor off the marina opposite the mooring field. DIYC members will provide launch service from the Point Bay mooring field and anchorage to/from the skipper’s meeting, the awards ceremony and the Lobster Fest dinner.
If you are unfamiliar with this part of the lake be aware you will want to give great respect to the red mark south of the Point Bay Marina in Town Farm Bay. The waters east of the mark are quite shallow.
While in this end of the lake we invite you to experience beautiful cruising and wonderful anchorages in Kingsland Bay, Converse Bay, Hawkins Bay, Barn Rock, Westport and Basin Harbor, home of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. Please visit this gem of a museum. You can go by boat and enjoy both the museum and the restaurants of the Basin Harbor Club. Moorings are available in the north harbor.
The Diamond Island Regatta is held to benefit the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. While there is no fee to enter the race, you can make a difference by purchasing special regatta themed items, and discounts on racing photos of your boat. Proceeds will support the Maritime Museum.
