I agree on that. The essence of cruising is to sail about discovering nice places and enjoying life in a relaxed kind of way. That's why I leave the boat each year in different locations for the winter.

I go with Faster on this one: I am a summertime cruiser, I have been that all my sailing life and almost never cruised on the same regions.

Regarding winter cruising...I prefer my fireplace. Too harsh for me. I could be cruising in Brazil since it is summer out there, but I am a family men and I like to have quality time with them. Now, if I could convince them and find the (their) opportunity to do that, I would enjoy to do that with them, at least one year, I mean cruising in Brazil for the winter.
