Sailing from Newport RI to Champlain Lake

Hi,

I'm a newbie here and I want to plan my first trip with my new boat this spring. The boat is a Jeanneau 39 and I will be helped by a 35 years experience sailor (never sail this area) and possibly two other newbie. Sure I can bring the boat by ground to Lake Champlain but the idea is to get precious sailing experience by bringing the boat by sea and Hudson River. Lotís of marina docking and some good sailing distance will give me a good base I hope.

If anybody already make this trip and can tell me how to get marina's location and information (opening date)? I plan to do this trip in beginning of May 2010 because Champlain canal (Hudson River to Champlain Lake) opens only May 1+. Basically, I think I need maps but if someone can give me a list of the best location to stop by for marinas quality and location to see from sea!
