Welcome to RSYC …

… and the 2016 Lake Champlain boating season.  RSYC has a great year planned for all of our returning members and welcomes new members to join in any or all of our activities.

So, what’s in a name?  Are we the Royal Yacht Club; the Savage Boat Club or a little bit of both?  Our 100+ member boats/families know RSYC to be an informal & welcoming community of boaters of all types (power, sail, fishing, cruising, racing) & ages who enjoy relaxing on Lake Champlain; helping each other out; socializing in both small & large gatherings and, of course, talking about boats!  Being a member of RSYC is very affordable (it’s the best $70 you’ll ever spend) and will make your boating experience on Lake Champlain more enjoyable.  If you are not yet a member of RSYC and use any size or any type of boat on Lake Champlain, especially if your favorite waters are south of McNeil Cove, then I encourage you to think about joining RSYC today.

This year, RSYC members and their guests will once again enjoy special benefits and numerous organized & impromptu events and activities throughout the boating season.  Benefits and events include- free use of club moorings; vessel safety checks by the USCG Auxiliary; Cruise Week; annual Chicken BBQ; club breakfasts; Diamond Island Regatta & Lobsterfest; fast sails; raft ups and family events such as the duct tape boat regatta.  Check the club’s activity pages and  calendar for more details along with the dates and times of all of our events.

Like any small recreational organization, RSYC does not exist without the volunteer efforts of our members.  Club volunteers enjoy the extra benefit of the camaraderie and satisfaction of working alongside other members in support of our shared passions around boating.  I ask all RSYC members to support your club, and get more out of your club, by volunteering during our spring/fall work days and during our large social events.  Calls for volunteers will be sent in club emails throughout the year.

Happy Boating,

Roger Wallace
RSYC Commodore for 2016
