Sailing Bucket List

I would love to do some high latitude sailing - This time lapse film taken in Greenland is very inspiring!


Definitely on my bucket list of places to sail!

What's on your sailing bucket list?

Re: Sailing Bucket List

Block island race
Newport Bermuda race
Chicago Mac race
perhaps transpac.

Ok... seeing a trend? Probably never happen, I'm getting old and fat, and nobody would want me for crew. Might have to buy my own boat, and hire some crew to help me do it!

Re: Sailing Bucket List

We just finished our first season owning a boat (second season sailing), so the bucket list is still pretty modest: Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, NYC.

Me too Shnool, but we make good rail meat! Just roll over back and forth when shouted at.

Bucket list for next season- Ocracoke and Cape Lookout.

Retirement bucket list- the Chesapeake, as many islands as possible down the ICW, the Bahamas to befriend the swimming pigs, the Keys, THE KEYS, THE KEYS, the Dry Tortugas, and somehow Catalina Island. That place is beautiful.

Re: Sailing Bucket List

This year's America's Cup races opened my eyes to a whole new world of sailing. Now I have a mad desire to skipper an AC 72. I'm not at all sure my 50+ years of sailing experience would be of any value in that, but I'd sure like to take one for a spin!
Alternately, and probably just as unattainable, I'd very much like to cruise China, but from everything I've heard, you cannot cruise there freely. No gunkholing, only approved marina to approved marina.

I would just like to do a circumnavigation and cruise the world. No reason to ruin a good trip with a destination.

But if I can't do that, then spending whatever time I can on the boat.

I'm with 1st CnC......
Down the ICW to the Keys. Might take me longer, as the voyage IS the destination!
Hopefully next Fall?!?!
Other than that?? My bucket's gotta hole innit!

Good plan, but I'd suggest doing the Keys & Dry Tortugas before you head over to the Bahamas...

Otherwise, you're likely to be disappointed in the former :-)

Good old circumnavigation with a passage through Panama Canal.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: Sailing Bucket List

Just this past summer, we had some guests aboard for a day sail that brought us a gift. It was the book, "50 places to sail before you die". Never heard of it before. Turns out we've sailed in better than half the suggestions.

I'm not really planning to finish the list.
