Re: The #1 sailing city in america

Baltimore has been underrated and overlooked as a sailing city. Even though it doesn't have the shear number of marine services as Annapolis, it does have a West Marine and a full service grocery store both right across the street from an anchorage and several of the best bars and restaurants in the state within walking distance of the major marinas. There are competent marine service providers here who don't advertise as much as the guys in Annapolis but also don't charge as much for comparable quality work. And when you can't find something locally, it's under an hour by car to Annapolis to pick it up. The Patapsco has a very wide mouth that's great for daysailing and unlike almost every other river on the Bay, there are relatively few shoal areas to have to navigate.

In truth I'm 60 nm upcoast in Dana Point, I'm not much for big harbors or cities either, but I sail past a few.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: The #1 sailing city in america

Annapolis and or Oriental both should be on the list.

You have to give it to any place where the boats out number the people 3 to 1

Dana was a Boston boy, you know, like me and so many other famous sailing figures. Why I had dinner tonight sitting next the Donald McKay memorial, and just down the harbor I could see the USS Constitution. And one of our local suburb towns (Beverly or Marblehead, they can't agree which) is the birthplace of the US Navy.

So Boston for sure.

Certified...in several regards...

How can you consider an area that can only be sailed a small part of the year in the league with say San Deigo, or any other California location all of which offer wonderful full year sailing? Ever seen any bikini's out in febuary Northport?, lots in SD, LB, LA, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Malibu etc. Granted the north east coast is a beautiful place but if it were so good for sailing why do so many disappear and head south in the winter?
