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:

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.

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.
