LCI is proud to announce Yamaha Outboards as the presenting sponsor for the 32nd Annual LCI Father's Day Derby presented by Yamaha. This premier, internationally-recognized event allows fishing from boat or shore for 7 major prize categories that put 11 species into play in one of the best multi-tiered fisheries and most beautiful lake settings in the country. It features an all cash prize structure, cash bonuses, a junior angler division, female angler awards and T.E.A.M. prizes.

"Yamaha is proud once again to be the Exclusive/Presenting Sponsor of the 32nd LCI Father's Day Fishing Derby. It gives us great pleasure to be partnered with LCI and their affiliates," said David Ittner, Tournament and Pro Staff Manager for Yamaha Marine. "Together our continued efforts ensure a future that protects our natural resources, our fish and wildlife and more importantly promotes environmental conservation. We look forward to all our successes in 2013."

Yamaha four-stroke engines are considered by many to be the best in the business for power and performance, reliability and durability, and convenience and control. It's no wonder Yamaha outboards have received the highest honors for customer satisfaction. Yamaha's wide range of engines offers something for every type of boater, starting with lightweight portable four-strokes, to the game-changing VMAX SHO 150 and the all new F200 In-Line four stroke, to the wave-crushing 350 horse power V8 F350.

Yamaha motors will be featured on the three new Smoker Craft Family of Boats - Starcraft Marine boats that will be awarded to T.E.A.M. winners in the Cold, Cool and Warm Water divisions of the 32nd Annual Father's Day Derby presented by Yamaha. "Yamaha has been an invaluable partner and we are extremely proud to be able to offer our anglers the chance to go home with one of their amazing engines," said LCI Outreach Director Eric LaMontagne. "Our partnership with Yamaha has been a key component to building the Father's Day Derby into the nationally distinguished event it is today."

LCI is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is the conservation, restoration and revitalization of Lake Champlain and the Lake Champlain watershed. LCI is host to the LCI Father's Day Derby presented by Yahama and other fishing-related fundraising events to help fund its conservation goals. Actively involved in fisheries and conservation issues, LCI also supports mentoring and educational programs, firmly believing people are not the problem, but the solution.
