Welcome to the Thistle 2023 Atlantic Coast Championship June 24-25 2023.

MBBC has hosted a number of One-Design Championship Event

2001 Lightning North American Championships (102 boats)
2003, 2011 & 2017 Lightning Atlantic Coast Championships (40+ boats)
2004 Sears Cup Triple Handed Jr. Sailing Championship (10 boats)

2021 J24 National Championship

We will have great open course racing in the outer Malletts Bay, the same course where the 2009 Lightning Worlds and the 2021 J24 Nationals were sailed. The Outer Bay is a nearly circular bay 4 1/2 miles wide, that is almost completely separated from Lake Champlain by an auto causeway to the north, and a railroad fill to the west. With an average water depth of 70 feet, this configuration provides an excellent body of water for racing with "wind appropriate" wave heights and minimal powerboat traffic. It will take 35 minutes to 1 hour to sail out to the course area, depending on the wind strength and direction.

There are a number of hotels and motels in the area as well as camping, bed and breakfasts. You should make your reservations early, June is a busy time in Vermont.
