It is time again for the once every 4 year update of the RRS. The link below summarizes the major changes for this quadrennial.
The change of most significance to LCYC sailors involves the new definitions for "Finish" and "Start".
Changes to RRS 16, 18.1 and 20.4 and 41 are also worth reviewing.

It is once again time to sign up for Race Committee duty. To run our races we need a PRO and a volunteer Race Committee of 2-3 people (depending on Wed night or weekend races). Volunteers are essential to running our race program and all racing boats are expected to do RC duty a minimum of once every 2 years. Also, former racers, non-racers and non-members are always welcome to volunteer.

RC signup is on the right hand side of the home page. You will need to login to your LCYC account in order to sign up.
If you have technical issues with signing up, contact Jason Hyerstay or John Harris.

We are always looking for new folks to join our team of PRO's (Principal Race Officers). Racers, former racers and non-racers are welcome to join the team. Training will be provided. To learn more, email crew_match@lcyc.info.

Recognizing Bob Dill and the Iron Duck
by Craig Leweck, Scuttlebutt Sailing News
Bob Dill is the kind of guy the National Sailing of Fame needs more than Dill needs to be inducted (but he does need to be inducted), and while he sits in the vast pool of nominees, Ben Dolenc produced a film I wish all the great adventures in our sport could claim.



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.

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!
