The Lake Champlain Championship Series website has been updated for 2020. http://www.lcchampionshipseries.org

The Spinnaker Class groupings for the ten-race Individual Class Championship Series have changed from four to three. See the front page of the site for a statement about the change, and see '2020 Spin Groupings' in the website sidebar to view 2019 boats in their 2020 groupings and a narrative explaining the rationale for the change.

The Drupal modules that we used for the header image and event slideshows are no longer supported, so I have disabled them while I look into other solutions.

The website may look different. At some point we will have to migrate from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8, and pick a new interface theme, since our current one is not supported anymore. If any members are web developers, I would appreciate any help.

Jason Hyerstay, LCYC Webmaster.

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!

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 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.
