Clubhouse The first clubhouse built on this property in 1963 was demolished at the close of the 1997 season; the present building, designed by member architects, was opened the first week of the 1998 season. The design recalls the open space and canvas covered porch of the very first clubhouse, on the Burlington waterfront, in use from 1888 to 1901. The present building is 2770 sq ft; 4500 sq ft counting the office and patios. (The 1963 building was 1150; 2550 counting a wooden deck.)

Unreserved Use Inside chairs, tables, outside lounge chairs, kitchen facilities, icebox space, fireplace, and open spaces are available, generally on an unreserved first-come basis. Use of these items and spaces is subject to club rules.

Reserved Use Partially-exclusive use of the house by members is available on a very limited basis only upon approval in advance by the Board of Governors. Please contact the House chair for details.

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!
