Right on. My family and I have been based in many places from the Hudson to RI for pushing 40 years and still haven't seen it all and still get to places I haven't been in 20 years.

No mention about and states on our "inland oceans", the Great Lakes?

Benjamin Islands in the North Channel (just north of Lake Huron)


Apostle Islands in western Lake Superior


Grand Traverse Bay (Lake Michigan)


Little Traverse Bay (Lake Michigan)


Mackinac Island (Lake Huron-Michigan-Superior intersect)









Can't forget Chicago!

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

This is a poorly designed poll IMHO.

To relegate Washington State, South Carolina, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland, and the States bordering the Great Lakes (just to name a few) to "Other" status perplexes me.
