Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Whoever built that rock pile monument-to-themselves / Kilroy-was-here /Inukshuk thing in the foreground, will you please go back there and put the rocks back where you found them? It took 10 million years to build this landscape and it was better the way you found it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Congratulations to Hthoni: identifying this from Google Earth could not have been that easy.

Yes, it's Cuttyhunk with a view past the Canapitsit channel to the next island, Nashawena. The sailboats are in the outer harbor, on the Buzzards Bay side, with Vineyard Sound to the the right. Martha's Vineyard is the land mass off in the distance.

Cuttyhunk is a famous fishing location that hosted fishing camps for the well-to-do from New York City many years ago. It still is famous for striped bass

So, Hthoni, It's your turn to post a picture!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok! Thank you!
let me take you guys through different waters then.
This is Brazil. This is a very famous sailing spot, with several regatas around the year, has clear waters perfect for diving and lots of islands and natural harbours.

have a nice trip!

sorry about the inconvenience of an external image, but since I'm a junior sailnet member, I can't post images yet.

if anyone can reply with the image inside, would help us all.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It was easy as I sail quite a bit in that area! Those two islands are pretty distinctive and I recognized them right away.

Here's another sailing Mecca in Brazil known for sailing events and great nightlife!
