Main Docks These docks and fingers were constructed for the club by Shelburne Shipyard in 1997. They are held in place by adjustable chain lengths connected to over twenty strategically-placed concrete mooring blocks. This mooring system is designed to hold the docks in heavy-weather conditions, but is not intended to handle the added weight and windage of members' boats. Please review and abide by club rules as established by the Board of Governors.

[Electrical Hookup Info will go here.]

South Docks These docks and fingers are primarily for use by the club's Junior Sailing Program. Members are permitted on the docks, but may not use them for season-long dinghy tie-up.

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.

About | Binnacle | Directions | History


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!
