Ahoy Boat Owners!

The International Sailing School has provided boat owners (sail or power) with mooring space on a first come first serve basis since 1981. The facility is nestled in Malletts Bay — one of the most protected anchorages on Lake Champlain. Many new amenities are available in a much more service oriented atmosphere.
