DATE & CHANGES to Mountain scence sailing in the Adirondacks

  • Aug 25, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members


I'll have the sailboat in the Adirondacks for 8 days. If you'd like to join me there, email me with the dates and send a phone number.

Because of the distance you'd want to spend at least 2 days - a week would be more feasible.

Raquette is one of the prettiest lakes in America right in the heart of the western part of The Adirondack Park. It's one of a few large enough for good sailing in a small boat. Lots of other things to do it if rains. We'll also sail on 4th Lake, Blue Mtn. Lake and perhaps Schroon Lake.

There is camping available at Golden Beach state park on Raquette lake (about $20 a night for a site). B&B's and cabin rentals are about $150 a night and up. With a van, 2 people can sleep cheap and safely right in the little hamlet of Raquette Lake.

It is possible to take our class A motor home if I had someone to drive my van with the sailboat on a trailer. The motor home will sleep 4. Call me at[masked] if interested.

    Sorry Chuck, I won't be able to go. Since I had been on the waiting list, I had made other plans and I just got back from Poughkeepsie and will be leaving again on the 30th.

    Awesome idea! This is a beautiful lake, I have rented a cabin there before. Unfortunately I'll be working, but WILL be there in spirit! :-)

    I wish I could but have other plans for this day. Never imagined a boat could be out in winter. Is this true? But then, you are probably having a do at the dock. Neat!
