Finger lakes, lake Champlain are fantastic sailing areas , including or especially our home sailing area of eastern Lake Ontario
and the 1000 islands. Oneida lake not so much. Too shallow and choppy if thereís any wind
Itís hard to move between them in a sailboat due to the necessity of having the mast
unstepped and shipped or put in a cradle
to transit the canals. Could be fantastic summer long cruise
though. The short sailing season up here probably limits interest as well, canals close early and itís easy to be trapped somewhere you donít want to be for the winter.
