Trawler “Apres Sail” leaves the wall and we quickly shove off to make the same northbound lock. We share all the locks to Whitehall. 

When will this building fall down ?

Construction of bike path along the Champlain Canal

We talk with one of the lock operators about the ground being dug up by the lock and find that they will be adding camping areas along some of the locks. He is not happy with the change, won't be as quiet, but most of the lock grounds are very pastoral and well maintained.

Lock 12, Whitehall, Lake Champlain beckons beyond the gates

“Apres Sail” stops on the town wall at Whitehall and we head into Lock 12 by ourselves and lock down onto Lake Champlain. We immediately notice the trees flooded along the shore line from the high water. We spend the rest of the afternoon motoring to Westport and drop anchor where we stopped on our first night south last Fall.

I have been texting Antares and find they left Catskill Creek a few hours after us and got ahead of us the next day after Waterford and beat us back to their home port at the Lake Champlain Yacht Club at 8:30 PM
