Block Island Sound to
Newport and Narragansett Bay
LI Sound
The Ocean anywhere along the Eastern seaboard Maine to Florida
The Hudson River (I know, not great actual SAILING on the river but I love the Hudson, from The Adirondacks to The Narrows.)

San Diego is also a good place to sail

I do like Santa Barbara / ventura
Hawaii I never sailed but have surfed there
my fifth is all along the southern end of the left coast

Re: Your top 5 favorite sailing spots?

Well I haven't sailed enough areas to come up with more than 5.
In no particular order
Clyde and West Coast Scotland.
(scenery, Lots of wild life, quiet, lots of nice anchorages with lots of nice pubs)

South Coast England Chanel Islands and North Coast of France.
(Great opertunity to sail across to another country)

Southern Gulf Islands BC and San Juans USA.
(Sheltered waters, Scenery, Wildlife, Accsesabilty, Lots of destinations)
Desolation Sound
(As abouve but more Remote few pubs)
West Coast Vancouver Island.
(Even more remote not so sheltered)

Haven't sailed anywhere else yet
Might be intersting to Ask for 5 place you would like to sail. Maybee we should be saing why we recomend our top 5.

1. Virgin Islands (U.S. or British)
2. Southern out islands of the Bahamas
3. Vieques, Puerto Rico

5. Exumas, Bahamas

The area on the southern coast of Vieques (shown in the map below) is just amazing!
