Re: The #1 sailing city in america

My small house is 90 miles from the boat and at an elevation of 6100 ft. 4 miles from a ski area.
Blowing 4 ft. of snow to get the truck out of the driveway (if the county has deigned to plow the street) just ain't the same kind of winter fun as it used to be.

I agree, snow is nice to visit but nor much more. I used to love playing slip and slid on the east coast roads in the winter. didn't pass many water holes without a warm up in those days

Re: The #1 sailing city in america

How did Annapolis get left off this?
How many places look like this with the window kicked up under the wing?

Re: The #1 sailing city in america

Quite interesting you left off one of the oldest sailing cities in America Annapolis. Sailors have been using it since the early 1600......and when did San Fran and San Diego get to become part of the Americas.

Annapolis also holds the distinction of being one of the 5 capitols of the United States. It is also equidistant from Washington DC and Baltimore where there are great museums and restaurants.

The sailing season in Annaplis is 10 months long..ususally no ice and there are so many coves rivers to explore nearby.

Re: The #1 sailing city in america

San Diego, Newport definitely are contenders, S. F. too I'm sure even though I've not sailed there. But for all round sailing and hosting major championships it's got to be
ANNAPOLIS.

[QUOTE=Coquina;1101022]How did Annapolis get left off this?

The west coast from the Mexican border to Santa Barbara looks like that. where there are not good natural harbours developers have done there thing creating at least +100,000 protected slips in that area. Then further north is Monterey bay and san Francisco bay with another at least 100,000 plus berths all located in some of the best sailing water of the world not part time sailing areas like annapolisis. And then don't forget the island just off the coast of California all very popular for sailors

Re: The #1 sailing city in america

If I sailed in an area where one could year round (unlike Annapolis), house work would never get done and I would probably be single!
