where to homeport?

Hi All,

Id like to ask all Southeast sailors for some advice on where to homeport a sailboat.

I live in Atlanta and a few months ago, purchased a 30 Hunter in St. Pete. Its berthed there now, and Im planning to move it to a port closer to Atlanta sometime this summer. (St. Pete just isnt realistic as a location given the distance from here!! its a 10 hour drive). Two places have been recommended the Ft. Walton Beach area, and the Savannah/St. Simons area.

Can anyone fill me in on what each area has to offer sailing clubs, opportunities to connect with other sailors, racing (fun, not serious), local waters, winds, etc. Any advice and information would be much appreciated.
