Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm guessing that this is in the vicinity of St. Maarten?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That rock... it isn't Creole Rock in Grand Case, or Ile Fourchue, or Colombier. Those moorings look like they have pendants, which would cut out the French Islands. I don't believe it is Antigua and not Dominica so we are left with something south of Martinique if we are in the Caribbean. That picture must have been carefully cropped so there is probably something quite distinctive in the missing part.

Is the catamaran a Sunsail or Moorings one or a private vessel?

no cropping, just the way i framed that picture, and nothing of particular import has been left out. as for the cat, i believe it was a charter

With all the clues, think first picture is Diamon Rock of Saba, and las picture is Saba.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I think that donjuanluis is correct, since that is the only island/anchorage in that area that I haven't visited I've sailed close past Saba enough times to recognize the island instantly from that picture.

Found panoramio picture from SV Zanshin, so look like some of you already know the places in fact, and just let other have fun.
so, thank you!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

donjuanluis - that Panoramio picture is indeed from one my fly-by sails, but I never anchored or moored there because the conditions were always too much swell; so I really did not recognize that rock and thus the honor of choosing the next picture goes to you, as you really did earn it and nobody was holding back!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don't even know where to start looking for this lighthouse or port and it would seem that nobody else on this thread can hazard a guess either. I think it is time to ask for a hint of some type to help identify the pictures.
