New England Champs ON for Tomorrow

We have it on good authority that Lake Champlain South of the bridge is better than it was last weekend. It hasn’t been sailed and fully scouted yet but I am going to gamble a little and try to not repeat last weekend’s issue. We will have a little later than normal start as we will need to scout the race course before starting racing. First start will be at noon.

We will be launching from Champlainside Farm, same as last week. The google map pin is below:

There is limited parking at this access and it definitely got a little crowded last weekend. So we would like to ask those that are planning on sailing but not racing to please use the McCuen Slang Fishing access just a little further north. There is plenty of room for all, it will just make everyone’s lives easier if we spread out the cars a bit. The google maps pin is as follows:

Remember to bring your poof of $300k personal liability insurance and please exercise extreme caution when first checking the ice. There is plenty of opportunity for there to be surprise issues we are unaware of.

See you there
