Good thread. Not sure, but a couple of things come to mind. Would like to cruise in the arctic somewhere, perhaps Greenland or Baffin Island. Also we have sailed to all of the continents except Europe. The admiral has been making noises about that.

WRT Easter Island, it is a fascinating place to visit. Like all remote islands it is so much better to go there by boat. Make sure to bring the good ground tackle and it is great fun to go ashore between surf breaks on both sides - you are close enough to talk to the surfers on each side. There is an incredibly beautiful anchorage called Ankena on the north shore, about 100 m wide with a lovely beach at the top with resurrected statues (most of the statues are still lying down). Only problem with this anchorage is that it would be a death trap with anything from the north.
