Gee whiz Paulo that would be a complete giveaway if I nailed it down that much but for now ... lets just say less than 100nm.

I wasn't totally sure until now but I applied totally incorrect logic and came up with Lion Island.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

First time I've tried to embed a picture on this forum so let's see if this works.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The island looked familiar and with trusty google maps I had it figured out, only to see that I should have continued reading the thread to see that it had already been answered. Sigh, another opportunity gone.

I should add that everyone should play along, and as long as the theme remains sailing oriented the picture doesn't have to be one's own and even the location doesn't need to be somewhere where one has been.

All I can tell in this picture is that the waters are tidal but the graminoids aren't distinctive. The white buoy doesn't seem to narrow it down - can't tell if IALA-A or IALA-B from that.

Can you post a clue?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Traditional fishing village that has become a tourist attraction. Shallow harbor rarely visited by cruising yachts. Two views are commonly shown in travel guides - one of which is the view from the other side of the harbor which looks something like this.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Those fishing boats don't look like anything I know in Europe so let's start from there. They look like wooden boats. It is an Asiatic port?
