Lake Champlain Yacht Club

LCYC is a member-run club organized as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the state of Vermont. Our only employees are stewards or instructors. The club is managed by a fourteen member board of governors, each person elected for a three-year term. The terms are staggered to assure management continuity and to preserve a high degree of tradition over time. The elected commodore serves a two-year term.

The club''s only option is an asphalt ramp for launching boats on trailers. The lake level can vary by up to six feet, from a high of 100 feet above sea level in the spring to a low of 94 feet in late summer or fall. The depth at the end of the ramp can vary accordingly, from about eight feet at high water to about two feet at low water. In addition, the ramp angle is somewhat shallow so it is advisable to have a trailer tongue extender so the trailer may be rolled far enough into the water for the boat to float off. The maximum draft launchable from this ramp is probably about 2.5 to 3.5 feet.
