Burlington, Vermont Breakwater
Get out on the water and support great lake-related causes - including the Lake Champlain Committee - by participating in the 2014 Regatta for Lake Champlain! This regatta is not your ordinary day out on the lake; it's a family-friendly benefit sailboat race to promote the health, well-being, sustainable use and stewardship of Lake Champlain.
The Regatta for Lake Champlain, presented by Rock Point Advisors is the most unique race in the region. It is the only race hosted on Burlington’s Waterfront, giving spectators a beautiful view of almost 50 sailboats, usually arriving under spinnakers (the colorful kite-like sail) into the harbor silhouetted against the Adirondack Mountains. As one of only a few certified Clean Regattas on Lake Champlain, all of the event’s organizers and participants commit to a list of environmental best practices to keep our waterways healthy and vital including use of non-toxic cleaning products, recycling, composting, and reducing single-use, disposable containers.
Since 2004 the Regatta has raised over $100,000 for lake causes. Nearly $20,000 has been donated to the Lake Champlain Committee to support our water quality protection and lake access work.
