The new 2009-2012 Racing Rules are here!!!! Check out the significant changes here!

NEW RULES!! -- NEW QUIZZES!!

Lake Champlain was popular in the sailing periodicals in 2008. Here's a story about paddle-sailing
aboard a 17.5' gaff rigged Norseboat. They departed from Malletts Bay headed to Valcour Island to meet up
with the NE Trailer Sailor's Association annual July rendevous. One of our mooring customers, Gerold Noyes, took
part in the cruise with his McGregor 26'. His picture was in the SAIL MAGAZINE article, but unfortunately didn't make
the on line version. View Article Here!!

HERE'S A LITTLE FIRESIDE READ!!! THANKS TO DAN YONKOVIG FOR SUBMISSION

2012 COMMISSIONING = 32nd ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!

MANY THANKS to the huge crew of sailors who have graced our decks and
supported us the last 32 years!!  It's been a pleasure to serve you, the sailors,
who made this milestone possible.  We take great pride in sharing our passion
for the sport of sailing.  Thousands have been bitten by the sailing bug due to
their ISS experience.  We hope we have helped to chart a course for many new
life long sailors.  Much appreciation to all our sailing comrades---old & new.  And
remember "SAILORS HAVE MORE FUN!!!!!!
