Events is a powerful way to look at the LCYC calendar, particularly if you are interested in events of a certain type such as Social, BOG meetings or Racing or Cruising events. Click on Events on the top menu bar and then click on various filters (e.g. Social, Racing, Cruising, Wednesday, E Series, etc.) to display those specific events. If you want to confirm your RC signup, this is where you can see all the PRO and RC assignments.

The 2022 LCYC racing season will soon be upon us and we have about 50 races to run. Volunteers are needed to run most of these events.

Login to your lcyc.info account and go to the RC signups sidebar to the right to sign up for an event

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!
