Pittsburgh.

Sailing: 7 hours from NY harbor area, 4 hours from Baltimore on the Chesapeake, 2 hours from Lake Erie, and 1 hour or less from Moraine and a number of other great inland sailing lakes.

Jobs: Unemployment considerably below national average. PNC and Mellon have major operations locally. PNC is hiring both financial and IT people. UPMC has huge IT and growing. There is CMU, which has spawned a ton of smaller tech and robotics companies, most of them doing very well.

Housing: Below national average. Dirt cheap in some very livable neighborhoods.

Stop by someday, we'll be happy to show you around.

And if it were not so bleeping cold there, my second choice would be Portland, ME.

I live in Pittsburgh, I have a IT job, My wife is an Accountant ,, Yes the winters are long her at least this last one was! I am from Atlanta i sailed in a man made lake there, but it was fluky air. I am just thinking in about a year I am going to move out of my area, I do like Lake Erie, but the boating seasons are very short! I am a IT guy for the Medical Field, I work outside of downtown. NC, Virgina, maybe further south!

Try Northwest Florida

Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Navarre, areas of NW Florida are really nice. Cost of living isn't as expensive as South Florida. Year round sailing either offshore or in area bays. Lots of places to day trip to and spend time in secluded anchorages. It's worth a shot. Pensacola is a big Navy town and has lots of tech heavy industry because of it. Good luck!

It is not that I would know anything about the medical industry, but with all the retired folks in Florida and N. Carolina that typically need more medical care than most I should think there is plenty of your industry there in which to look.
