Summer 2007 Trip Home Page

The Plan…

Welcome to our (Leila & Greg’s) summer trip of 2007 from Oneida Lake to Lake Champlain and back. We are planning on leaving Oneida Lake and cruising east down the Erie Canal and then head north up the Hudson River through the Champlain Canal and out onto Lake Champlain. Then after spending some time on the lake, backtracking the course to Oneida Lake. We plan to spend about four weeks on the boat, though we are free to stay longer if need be.

The Boat…

We will be traveling on a 25′ O’day swing keel sailboat with a 15 HP outboard on the back, with the mast lowered on the deck, with enough supplies for spending a month on the boat, besides food, which we had about 2-3 weeks worth. Our boat is a bit small for such as trip by most people’s standards but it served us very well.
