Re: Lake Champlain - greetings!

Camp of the Woods? I had my first job there as a musician back in 1960!

Small world.

I never had the time or money for a sailboat. My two brothers-in-law owned 19' Lightning's, and now 30+ foot boats and I used to charter a lot.

Bare-boat chartered a 30+footer and sail from Pt. Pleasant, NJ to Block Island, RI many times.

Sailing out of sight of land for 24 hours with dead-reckoning and a decent binnacle can teach us many things

Planing hulls are a trip as well. I've raced out of Greenwood lake, Raritan Yacht Club as well as Nyack YC. Never needed to own one.
