Re: Sailing Lake Champlain

I keep my boat at Chipman Point which is a very nice spot with great folks that own it. Although I haven't done that much sailing on the lake (usually head south to get my salt water fix:-), there are quite a few sailboats and there are nice places to sail. Of course it's very narrow down the south end and the water is pretty green, but you can do some sailing. It's also not a very long way to get up to the wider lake. Once you get up past Crown Point the lake widens out. Sailing the lake is nice but you can see it all pretty quickly and it's fresh water lake sailing. There are swarms of bass boats during tournaments but they are not a problem.
