The 2023 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

* All racing boats are expected to provide Race Committee at least once every 2 years...preferably every year
* All members are welcome to volunteer. Serving on the RC is a great way to meet your annual volunteer obligation
* RC volunteers are expected to bring at least 2-3 people, including themselves, depending the event

Note: RC signups are not carried over from last year.

We are always looking for folks to join our dedicated team of PRO's. Racers, former racers and non-racers (both members and non-members) are welcome. Training will be provided. To learn more contact crew_match@lcyc.info.

All hands on deck! We are still looking for stewards for the 2023 season. We will meet the bare minimum from June through most of August, but are currently short during September. Please pass along my contact information to anyone who might be interested, willing to get licensed and has the necessary experience.

Regular / Senior Steward We need one more individual who might be a local college student having a flexible schedule in September, or a retired mariner who could work primarily during September but could also fill-in during the summer. The total number of hours could be in the range of 150 to 300, depending on availability.

Steward-in-Training There is still one more opening for a 16- or 17- year old who is committed to becoming a regular steward in future summers, but lacks the required number of sea days for the US Coast Guard license.

If interested, please contact:

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.



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!
