Re: Mobile and Looking for a Great Sailing Community

I'd second Annapolis. Very sailing - oriented culture, forgiving sailing grounds (moderate winds, mud bottom no rocks to damage hull if you do go aground), lots of sailing schools/clubs, lots of boats for sail, lots of races to participate in if that interests you. No sailing for 3 months of winter but lots of free sailing-related seminars to keep your aquatic mind active. The downside is that the cost of living is higher than other areas; ya gets what ya pays for.

And, when you're ready to move aboard and start cruising you have lots of places to gunkhole, then easy access to the ICW to head south to the Bahamas/Caribbean.
