George Brown’s Adventures on Lake Champlain

We decommissioned my sailboat (Seaward 32RK, 10000 lbs) in Knoxville starting 1pm last sunday, put it on my triple axle trailer, and hauled it 1000 miles to Lake Champlain. Spent yesterday putting the mast up in the parking lot, 2 of us with a gin pole, and launched at 130pm today. Very long 4 days, but the Champlain adventure lies before us now for the next 2 months. Please feel free to share this with our fellow WLSC members.

All the best,

1978 Lancer 28

-in slip E19 Lakeshore Marina
-Bought this for the slip, and we’re bringing our smaller boat in June 12
– motivated to sell and can likely help deliver within a few hours radius. 
-Windows need to be resealed, needs interior work, but it’s a solid vessel. 
-Shoal draft, fixed keel with water ballast, so it’s trailer-able. 
-Outboard well, Bimini, roomy cockpit
-Six berths, dinette
-6’2” headroom with sliding companionway top
-Porta pot, 2 sinks, no stove, but room for one
-Took the main sail off to clean it, but it’s in good shape. Rip stop racing sail with blue cover to match Bimini and tiller covers. 
-No motor, no trailer, no batteries, no cushions, and no slip, but it’s a good fixer upper!
– Will consider trade for a jet ski.

Spring Race 2

Commodore Branddon spoke to the Elizabethton High school’s JROTC and then organized a daysail for the students.  The club’s captains graciously offered their time and it was a magical day for captains and all the enthusiastic crew followed by a pizza feast!

See the great video by Mike Johnson

Link to Video

The club is passionate about sailing and nautical traditions.  This wias a wonderful opportunity for us to expose some of our local youth to our passion. I believe this will also help perpetuate the club, bring potential new members, and connect us to our community.

Before the days of the Carona Virus, WLSC often had some great dinner meetings.

Here are a sample of two in the link below:
