Cruising Tunes

My wife and I are headed to the BVIs for our 3rd bare-boat trip next month. We have 4 or 5 CDs that we always take with a variety of music, but she gets tired of the same old boat music after a few days (maybe because we use them on our boat as well).

Anyone willing to share a few selections of your favorite boat tunes?

We had a recording of "Baudy Sea Chanties" we played loudly as we entered the marina after thrashing regata competition. It was a variety of old English, Scotish and Irish 'nasties'.

I keep the satellite radio on "Sirius Chill" while on the boat, don't know if you can get it down there though?

I have not taken a CD on board in years. I have this thingy called an Ipod...

If you are chartering a newer boat it might even have an Ipod ready stereo.

Do the "Dropkick Murphys" do any of that stuff?

I love the Dropkick Murphys! Good for FAST sailing!

Eric Stone is good, Sonny Landreth, Scott Kirby is one of my favorites for sailing.

Around in these parts (San Diego) Smooth Jazz seems to meld very well with the local sailing conditions IMHO
A couple of my personal favotites for you to try would be Acoustic Alcehmy, Bobby Lyle, Lee Ritenour, The Rippingtons, Chuck Loeb, Rick Braun, Tom Grant, Doc Powell, Paul Hardcastle and many others.

Don't forget the Brecker Brothers - or, if you're feeling salty, some M Base Collective.
