Show us your home port!

I would like to see pictures of the areas that you call home! Where do you keep your boat? What is it like where you go daysailing? Where are your favorite places to go that are close to home, that you can head to for a overnighter or a weekend?

This is our home port, Deep Cove BC.



Because we are located on an inlet quite far inland past Vancouver, if we only have a night or two we usually head north, Further up Indian Arm where both our clubs have outstations. They are about 11nm from our dock.



As you might guess by the geography we do spend a lot of time sailing in light winds, and they can be very shifty so you have to pay attention and take advantage of lifts and headers.

Not one of the nicer days in Milwaukee. I'm the one closest to the pier.

It's my home port.... But I get kinda homesick for it. It's been since 2008 that Sea Life has seen it!

Here's our harbor and home.

Rockport Maine. Our dinghy dock is a 5 minute walk from home. It's a quiet working harbor.

The best thing about having a boat here, is the wind. Just outside the harbor, you can often pick up the prevailing southwesterly wind and head eastward across Penobscot Bay and beyond.

It's not unusual for us to sail a beam reach all the way through the big bay, threading between and around islands, about 30 nm's, into the Merchant Islands off Deer Isle.

Penobscot Bay gives you vast sailing options and destinations in all wind directions and strengths.

For close to home sailing, we often head for the nearby Fox Islands, Islesboro, to mention just a few, which have a wide range of anchorages and harbors to spend the night in.

Re: Show us your home port!

Shilshole Bay Marina, one of the biggest on the west coast, on the western edge of Seattle. Mostly sailboats, tons of them, lots of interesting destinations nearby, good year round sailing, and a 15 minute drive or 35 minute bike ride from my house.

Re: Show us your home port!

Synergy lives at a dock behind my home on Martin's Cove off of Mill Creek, just north of Annapolis.

This is a view from my living room looking up the creek:
