Rock the Dock Benefit

presented by PC Construction Company

July 3rd :: 6:30pm :: Community Sailing Center Docks ::

Update 7/1 – Tickets are now sold out. Thanks for your interest, and we hope you can join us next year! Please consider buying raffle tickets to support our scholarship fund.


Proceeds from the Rock the Dock Benefit support the Community Sailing Center which removes financial barriers to Lake Champlain for all interested youth, adults, and local non-profit organizations who could otherwise not afford to participate.

Join our annual celebration and enjoy a first-class front row seat to the waterfront fireworks display, tasty bites from some of the area’s best restaurants, music, summer cocktails, and endless dancing under the stars – all while helping your neighbors get out on the lake this summer.

Due to limitations on how many guests we can safely fit on the dock, Rock the Dock provides a haven from the commotion of the masses that seem to storm the waterfront on the 3rd while preserving the spirit of camaraderie and the sounds and sights of the evening. We also have a limited number of dock spaces available for you to boat up to. Please call if you are interested in docking.

Every $300 we raise provides:

a week-long camp session for one child from a local low-income family

a day of Leader Ship programming for 6 youth, which provides the opportunity to grow though the challenge of sailing and effective communication between peers in a structured outdoor environment

a day of learning on a Floating Classroom for 12 students which provides local school groups the opportunity to experience hands-on scientific learning on the Lake through keel boat sailing and on-shore lessons
