RI and MA aren't on your list? You live in a bubble.

Re: What is your favorite U.S. state to go sailing / cruising?

Well, since I (and many of us) can sail in CT, NY and RI in a single afternoon, I guess I'm just lucky.

I'd begin to list all the small towns, cities, ports, anchorages, sounds, bays, salt ponds and rivers I could reach in a day sail but I'd just bore you all to tears.

And then there is that whole "draft is not much of an issue" thing. But hey, I'm boring you again.

Sailing off my mooring in the mouth of the Mystic River into Fisher's Island Sound is my gateway to paradise.

I loved San Francisco, but that was it, the rest or the west coast was was somewhere to Port.

Although not states, both Puerto Rico and the USVI are part of the USA and are missing from the list despite being very popular sailing locations.
