Welcome to the Home of the Royal Savage Yacht Club

Cruise 2013 Valcour

We are located on Thompson's Point in Charlotte Vermont on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain.  The club was started in 1980 and sponsors a number of activities throughout the boating season.

Upcoming Events:

December 3rd

As promised, we are announcing the first RSYC Winter Pub Night!

Plan on meeting Wednesday, December 3rd, at the Antidote in Vergennes.  Starting at 6:30 the Antidote has given RSYC exclusive use of their back game room, and is offering us two drink specials.  They will give members $1.00 off all local brews, and are pouring $5.00 house margaritas thanks to the excellent negotiating of our host and Rear Commodore Gary Russell.  Wednesday nights at the Antidote also feature live music.  Starting at 7:00 we will be treated to the sounds of Cooper and Lavoie. The Bluesman and Balladeer will be playing acoustic blues and folk classics.

Arrive when you can, stay as long as you like, order dinner or not, and enjoy the drink specials and camaraderie with your fellow Royal Savages.

A message from the Commodore:

Many thanks to everyone who stopped by to help move the tables out of the tent Saturday morning. We were able to get the job done quickly thanks to your help. Special thanks to Stephanie Wernhoff and Marc Gervais who went in without protective gear and cleared out the potato salad that had spent months in the A-frame fridge.  That was really hazardous duty!

For those who didn't make it to the Change of Watch I've got a couple of important things to pass on...

Congratulations go out to Harold Field, the 2014 Commodore's Cup winner!  Harold has been quietly lending his expertise to club members for years, and is always ready to give a hand, whatever the project. The Commodore's Cup is the highest honor the club bestows, and it could not have gone to a more deserving recipient.

Congratulations also to John Beal who won the 2014 Donnelly Cup. John and Dragonfly have been tearing up the fast sail racecourse and inspiring us for years.  Mostly my view is of his stern (and through binoculars no less). Great job, John!

I am still looking for a Fast Sail Captain and a Power Boat Captain for next year.  We also will need a Fleet Captain to lead the Cruise Week.  If you are interested in any of these positions please let me know at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
