Re: Sailing Lake Champlain

Not due to traffic... I sail the north end of the lake, mostly - out of St. Albans Bay - but I've been all over and never seen so much traffic that a dinghy sailor would be threatened.

I used to sail in a pretty tender dinghy though and found that most of what I would call the "broad lake" had a bit too much wind for my tastes a lot of the time. During the summer there's a fairly regular 15-20 knot SW wind that can put up big swells... In the dinghy I mostly sailed in Mallets Bay or St. Albans Bay - the protected areas seemed to give me more "perfect wind days" to work with...
