LCYC's Meredith Powlison won the New England Singlehanded Junior Women's Championship, held July 31-August 1 on Nantucket Island. Her finishes in the 10-boat fleet were 1-1-3-2-1-1-1. There was no racing the first day, as wind failed to appear on this usually breezy venue. On the second day, the Nantucket breeze filled in at 15-20 knots. Meredith is a junior sailing instructor at LCYC and crews on the family Etchells, Pied Piper. Photos are at: http://lcyc.info/gallery/Member+Albums/Dave+Powlison/

If you haven't yet discovered them, LCYC now has two new moorings in Converse Bay for members' use.
They are located in the south of the bay in what is currently 15 ft of water. You can't miss them as the mooring ball is marked "LCYC"; the pickup says "Private". In addition, a 3rd mooring is planned for Kingsland Bay which should be available soon.

We regret to report that club member Frank Snyder passed away yesterday.

Frank's local family includes his wife, Jesse, as well as his daughter, club member Suzanne Johnson and her children. Our thoughts are with them all at this difficult time.
Frank was a seasoned sailor and included in his sailing resume service as past commodore of the New York Yacht Club. In Frank's honor, flags will fly at half mast at NYYC and at LCYC for a week. Please refer to the Free Press for further details on arrangments.



The Lake Champlain Yacht Club 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. Please let us know if you are interested in membership!

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 during the sailing season. 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.
