Done with the canal... heading down the Hudson...
We just finished going down the Champlain Canal today. It's been a good trip south so far. Taking our mast down on Monday went great, and we made it halfway down Lake Champlain on the first day. On day two (Tuesday), we entered the Champlain lock system and made it halfway through. Today, we finished the other half and are currently overnighting at the Albany Yacht Club. Tomorrow we head to Catskill, NY to Riverview Marina to get our mast put back up again. I can't wait to turn back into a sailboat.
We took lots of pictures, and I plan to put together a whole writeup of traversing the Champlain Canal soon.
From Catskill we head south towards New York City, through Hell Gate, to a couple of additional spots before we end our trip near New Haven CT. We'll be keeping our boat in the water there for a few more weeks and then we'll have it hauled for the Winter, to return to Champlain in the Spring. We hope to meet up with a couple of other Sailnetters along the way at Liberty Landing Marina next to New York City. If anyone else is along our path, shout out so we can see if it's near where we're stopping.
