Cruise Week 2016


The livin’ is especially easy during RSYC cruise week!

Each year, a dozen or more boats from RYC cruise around Lake Champlain together during the first week of July.  The mixed fleet of powerboats and sailboats visit a variety of anchorages, moorings and docks throughout the week.  Some boats stay for the entire cruise week and others may join for just a select portion.  An entertaining theme is often chosen for the week which adds to the fun.

The theme for 2016 is … your favorite music.  Whether it be a specific song, a songwriter, a band or an album; please bring some music to share with other boaters.

For new comers to cruise week, kids of all ages are welcome and have a blast during cruise week.

We do not have a Fleet Captain for this year’s Cruise Week and are instead asking attending boats to take the lead on one social event during the cruise.  Please email us (click here) if you plan to attend and let us know if you would like to be in charge of a day’s social event. New social events are introduced each year and old favorites reoccur frequently.  Some old favorites include a dinghy appetizer raft up; organized hikes; scavenger hunts; on-shore campfire or a game night (we fondly recall one epic game of farkle).  So join the fun and sign up for your preferred evening now. We’ll update this itinerary as boats sign up.
