Lake Champlain Yacht Club proudly invites you to our fourth annual Viper 640 Regatta and the New England Championships! This is also the final event in the Great Lakes Viper 640 Series.

In 2016 we had an amazing event, with eighteen boats and ten races over two days, with lots of planing runs.

This is a Viper 640-only event at a gorgeous freshwater venue sandwiched between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. We have top level race management and a really friendly club. We have lots of club members ready to offer free housing to competitors.

Late September on Lake Champlain offers some of the best wind and most beautiful scenery. We are hoping to have guest teams from Canada, Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, Marblehead, New England, Lake George, Long Island Sound, Newport, and elsewhere.

Please download the NOR for event information, and the General Information for extra stuff you might need to know about the event, the area, and local resources. We also have a document for Lake Champlain Sailing Conditions, where our regatta tactician (John Harris, Etchells Fleet 25) shares our local tips and tricks!

Volunteer event photographer Gerry Davis found a local sailing fan with a smaller helicopter, so we should be getting arial photos this year!
