Re: Sailing Lake Champlain

Our daughter taught sailing for the City of Burlington over several summers. Never mentioned any issues with there being too many stinkpotters. The lake there seemed big enough for decent cruising as well as OD racing in Etchells. Powerboaters might prefer the southern sections because the lake gets narrower there. When they can see the land going by them on both sides, it makes them feel like they're going faster. When they get out on open water more to the north, it seems like they slow down because the land doesn't move as much, and they might like that less.
