Registration | Schedule | Curriculum | Jobs | Boat Use

Were are moving forward with our program for 2022 and will adjust the program based on changes in the COVID-19 restrictions.

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 tentatively scheduled during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!

Tuesday Evening FJ Race Clinics - LCYC will host five 1.5 hour sessions on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7 PM. The clinics will be led by our racing instructors and will focus on racing strategies, boat handling, starting tactics and will be followed by a short race. Participants can use these sessions to satisfy the race clinic requirement for the Champ Chase and Cheeseburger Regattas.

Mark your calendars for these additional Junior Sailing events this summer!

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.
