On Saturday afternoon, I saw the 4th Sun Legende that I know of on Lake Champlain. Evangeline, from Willsboro Bay. Saw her through the traffic encountered at the bottom of the bay. There were quite a few boat enjoying the wind just before a thunder storm rolled through.
Tom, I gave you a call on 9, are the folks in the bay dialed to 9 or 16?
Danny, good to know you´re enjoying your sailing season. I just finished cleaning the bottom and filling up all water and diesel tanks and will hopefully start my yearly cruise to the Islands next Saturday (never, ever start a journey on a Friday!) I´ll take some pictures to share with you and maybe one day we can trade sailing grounds for a week or two. Fair Winds!
Danny, It was funny to see this post last evening. We(my wife and myself) had just come back from a week on the lake(Burlington, Valcor, Inland Sea...) you had seen us @ the beginning of our journey. On Wednesday traveling through the mooring field @ Snug Harbor and thinking we might see Styl'eau II, and low and behold we see not one but two SL's. Quite amazing.
I think there might be even more than 4 on the lake. How many SL could have been made, and how many could there be in North America?
We have at least 4 on Lake Champlain.
We monitor 9 & 16, but we were just getting started and the storm was coming in quick(as you know), we might have missed your hail.
Tom, I hope you had a nice week, it started bad with the storms during the w/e of the 1st. We got to the end of the bay just before the storm, where you hit by the storm? A lot of boats we going to the top of the bay at that time. We were 7 on the boat that weekend, me, my wife, our 3 kids and my sister and her husband visiting from California. That was their 1st weekend on our sailboat. We dodged the storms during 3 days. But they were happy to be on the lake nonetheless. Yes we are 2 SL's at Snug, us and Le Clos St-Louis. There's another one at Monty's Bay, Eaudacieux. Do you guys sail every weekend?
Yes we sail every weekend(and sometimes in between).
Yes we got caught in the storm(first of a few).
We sailed around storms Saturday through Tuesday, tucked into sloop cove Tuesday night, and then up to the inland sea for the rest of the week. The weather from then on couldn't have been better, climbed nicely into the mid 80s with lots of sunshine.
Beat it toward home Saturday, had to get the Evangeline cleaned up, before we got back to that grind on Monday.
Told my sister this morning that they should have been on the boat this past weekend. Typical Lake weather. Good wind condition. We moored at the south of inner Mallet's bay Friday night, water temp was 78, wow, just 2 boats :-) Saturday night was Bluff point north, what a crowd :-(, kids wanted to build a small fire at Valcour instead of beating down to Shelburne.
