Through the Champlain Canal

15 June 2011 | Whitehall, NY
Rich
We spent the day on our bridge under a bright sun and up to 80 degree weather while transiting through the twelve locks between Troy and Whitehall, NY, which are at either end of the Champlain Canal. The first part of the Canal is actually part of the Hudson River and the last section is an actual dug canal. The cutoff to the Erie Canal occurs after the first Lock at the junction of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers. The picture is just as the water is beginning to rise in a lock.The water level rises a total of 139 feet through the first nine locks and then drops 44 feet through the next three locks to the level of Lake Champlain. We had every lock to ourselves except for the last one which we shared with one sailboat. The entire trip took eleven hours although the cruising guide advised allowing a day and a half in traffic. (Note that this and the next two entries were done after the fact as the Sailblog site was off line for a few days}
