Bow or Stern?

From a safety stand point, go in bow first. In the area that I sail, people that want to be social go stern in, those who want privacy go in bow first. I have from time to time gone stern in when we wanted to watch a 4th of July fire works display. In all cases I had lots of room to get lined up. I have also seen some real disasters as sail boats don''t respond as quickly in reverse.
