where to homeport?

Hi All,

Iíd 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 30í Hunter in St. Pete. Itís berthed there now, and Iím planning to move it to a port closer to Atlanta sometime this summer. (St. Pete just isnít realistic as a location given the distance from here!! Ė itís a 10 hour drive). Two places have been recommended Ė the Ft. Walton Beach area, and the Savannah/St. Simons area.

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