Re: Best Beginners sailing grounds?

I'll give another vote to the west coast of FL. We sail year round out of St. Petersburg. There are active sailing communities from Clearwater down to Naples.

We've been making two and three day trips from Tampa Bay down to Charlotte Harbor the last couple years and made one offshore trip to the dry tortugas. Once you get bored of that you can head to Mexico, the Bahamas or just get drunk in Key West for a while.
