Lake Champlain PHRF

The Lake Champlain Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (LC PHRF) provides ratings for monohull keelboats for sailboat racing on Lake Champlain. The Committee is comprised of representatives from CPFC, LCYC, MBBC, RSYC, VSC, and Mayor's Cup. Ratings are free and persistent.

The PHRF system rates a boat on its current condition, and assumes that a boat is equipped to race. It does not attempt to rate a partially equipped boat, or a boat which differs from others in it's class, in that it is unusually heavy, out of balance, or has unusual windage (as from a dinghy on davits). The addition of extra equipment, heavier rigs, or older sails will not be taken into account when determining a boats rating. Conversely, the removal of, or relocating of equipment can yield a rating penalty for a yacht. The system does not reflect skipper or crew capability. PHRF and other handicapping systems are described in more detail on the US Sailing website.

It is the responsibility of each individual applying for or holding a rating to provide accurate information concerning the condition of the boat or any alterations to the standard configurations or to changes after it has been rated by the committee.

Racing monohull keelboats must be registered on the LCYC website with a current Lake Champlain PHRF rating to be scored in LCYC racing events. To obtain a LC PHRF rating for Lake Champlain, please fill out a Lake Champlain PHRF Form. Questions concering LC PHRF at LCYC should be directed to phrf@lcyc.info.

If other classes wish to organize on Lake Champlain, and pick a rating system or systems, they can ask the LCYC Regatta Committee for event support. Scoring will always be separate from monohull keelboat results.

Alternate rating systems include:

International Small Catamaran Handicap Rating System (Performance Catamarans)
New England Multihull Association (Cruising Multihulls)
UK RYA Portsmouth Yardstick (Dinghies and Multihulls)
US Sailing Portsmouth Yardstick (Dinghies and Multihulls)

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.
