Want to do some casual singlehanded dinghy racing at LCYC while social distancing? Email crew_match@lcyc.info. Indicate level of interest and type of boat you might sail. Open to all singlehanded boats. Some loaner boats might be available. Time and date TBD. If we get to the point of having a RC and scoring, we will use the Portsmouth handicapping system—PHRF for dinghies. Join us!

To avoid sending out multiple email blasts and constantly having to amend the LCYC calendar and website, the Regatta Committee has decided to approach the 2020 season this way: No scheduled races will take place until the Regatta Committee Chair notifies the membership that racing is resuming. There will be a two-week notice for the resumption of racing. Please be sure to check your email and/or the LCYC website for communications about resuming racing.

All racers are required to sign up for Race Committee at least once each season. The time to do that is now. Sign up is now live on this site. Log in and choose the date (see right-hand side of this page) you plan to serve.

If all slots have not been filled by May 15, we will assign those spots. Please do the responsible thing and sign up early!

We need a few volunteers to help support the three "C's" at LCYC: Calendar, Communications, and Community. Our lives are intertwined with online news, email and social media, and our club needs to evolve as well.

We are seeking folks who have some experience turning on a computer to help support the two or three individuals who run and manage our electronic communications. Some computer skills are necessary but an interest in the club and mission is more important.

Part of the reason our LCYC dues are low is we rely on volunteers to help with docks, house, grounds, social, etc. Please consider lending a hand here.

If interested in helping, email: LCYC.Commodore@gmail.com

Club

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!

Cruising

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.

The 2020 LCYC Junior Sailing program has been canceled to the coronavirus pandemic.

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 have two race weeks during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!

Lake Champlain is a beautiful venue for sailboat racing, with excellent competition, friendly competitors, and great participation. LCYC features a summer-long Wednesday Night racing series, an Etchells/Sportboat series, and weekend races, several of which are part of the the Lake Champlain Championship Series. Our friends at Mallets Bay Boat Club, Royal Savage Yacht Club, and Valcour Sailing Club also offer great racing events around the lake. LCYC also hosts an annual Viper 640 Regatta.
