I say it also needs many weekend sailing destinations and a variety of experiences. It would be nice to have a rich history of the sport, not just a port, and manufacture of sailboats, even if from an era prior to the exodus of manufacturing from the US. A museum or two couldn't hurt
Sounds like San Diego/Orange County California now, what is this "on the hard" and "winter" you guys speak of?
Except we got no excessive heat, bugs, lightening or hurricanes to enjoy.
