Besides my own local waters (San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands), my two favorite places I've sailed so far have been the Va'vau Group in Tonga, and the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin on Lake Superior.
Tonga was pure magic: Very remote, beautifully pristine, and pretty good sailing conditions. The Tongans are very friendly people, too. Other than the incredibly gorgeous islands and quiet anchorages, the coolest thing was meeting Webb Chiles and the Hawk of Tuonela one evening at anchor. I want to go back during the season when the Humpbacks are there.
The Apostle Islands, though only four or so hours away from Minneapolis-St. Paul, also seemed remote, pristine, and had great sailing conditions. I'll be up there again in June sailing from Bayfield, WI to Isle Royale (with the 2nd Annual Lats & Atts Cruiser's Party part of the festivities). We'll be on a Pacific Seacraft 34 from Superior Charters. Definitely looking forward to it!
