Lake Champlain Viper 640 Regatta

This is our annual Viper 640 Regatta, and the final event in the Great Lakes Viper 640 Series.

Lake Champlain is a gorgeous freshwater venue sandwiched between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. We have top level race management and a really friendly club. Many club members generously provide free housing to competitors, donate their time, or run their boats for this event.

Late September on Lake Champlain offers some of the best wind and most beautiful scenery. We've hosted guest teams from Boston, Charleston, Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, Marblehead, New England, Lake George, Long Island Sound, Newport, Ontario, Quebec, and elsewhere.

Registration requires an account on the site. If you have registered in the past, you can just login and register. Otherwise, please create an account with your Full Name in the User tab on the right side of the website, and register for the regatta and choose to pay via PayPal or at the event. This is the registration form for our entire season, so please just choose Spinnaker for One Design.

Event fee is $130 per boat, which includes a bagel breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, a come-as-you-are buffet dinner for skipper and two crew at the clubhouse Saturday evening and post-event cheese, crackers, and hot dogs. The weekend meal price for additional crew and guests is $20 each.

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.
