Reminder: LCYC Members have priority sign-up from February 1 - February 28.
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 have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!
New for 2018:
Thursday Evening FJ Race Clinics - This summer, LCYC will host six 1.5 hour sessions on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7 PM. This session will start on 21 June and run through 9 August. (Please note that we will NOT hold this clinic on regatta weeks (19 July and 26 July)). Led by our racing instructors, we will focus on racing strategies, boat handling and starting tactics followed by a short race. Participants can use this session to satisfy the race clinic requirement for the Champ Chase and Cheeseburger Regattas.
Week 3 sessions (week of 2 July) will be a 4-day session: Wednesday, the 4th of July, will be a holiday with no junior sailing.
· The 2018 Champ Chase Regatta will be held on Mallets Bay, hosted by MBBC on Thursday-Friday, 19 & 20 July 2018. The Cheeseburger Regatta will be hosted by the Northern Lake George Yacht Club on 26 & 27 July 2018.
What stays the same:
· Coupon Codes are percentage discount as opposed to flat rate (Member = 10%, Grandchild = 5%, Shelburne = 5%)
· Week 7 and 8 sessions will be full day for both Opti's and FJ's
