"The Hudson River is the gateway to some of the finest cruising in North America. The enormouslypopular "circle trip" originates at Manhattan and follows the Hudson to th e Mohawk River and Erie Canal above Albany, thence to Buffalo and Lake Ontario, with maybe a side trip into the Finger Lakes, perhaps a visit to Toronto, then down the lake past Kingston and Rochester to the limitless cruising opportunities of the Thousand Islands, down the St. Lawrence Seaway to Montreal, before heading south at Sorel, Quebec, through the Richelieu River and Chambly Canal to Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont, andultimatelv back down the Hudson to Manhattan. This 1,400-mile voyage passe s through unspoiled wilderness, farmland, small towns, cosmopolitan cities—tne Northeast's inland waterways have it all. The Rumseys, one of North America's best-known cruising families, have painstakingly surveyed every harbor, cove, and point of interest along the route, pointing out the choice areas, and offering alternatives to the mundane. Their custom-drawn charts, which guide cruisers into secluded anchorages and crowded marinas alike, areunavailable anywhere else, and amount to an instant infusion of years of l ocal knowledge. A Cruising Guide to the Northeast's Inland Waterways is simnlv the best, most comprehensive cruising guide to the Northeast's best inland cruising." (from the dj).
