Where would you go?
For all of those sailors stuck in port, daydreaming about their next adventure...

If you could cast off today, fully provisioned on YOUR CURRENT BOAT, and time wasn't a factor, Where would you go?

I'll start it up...

Being from the tropics, I would sail up to New York City. I've never been there, and have a sister who recently moved to NY for college. It seems like a funny sailing destination at first glance, but Manhattan is an island right?

One place?
Got to be the Aleutian islands.

On my current boat, back to Lake Huron's North Channel.

Current boat? With some modifications to add to cruising comfort and safety, I would have to say the coast of Maine/Nova Scotia looks pretty cool. Realistically though (with our current "noob" status), I'm going to be pretty happy to make it out to Put-In Bay in Lake Erie in the near future.

Central/Northern coastal BC, Haida Gwai (Queen Charlottes) and through to Alaska...

Faster answered for me. I'm doing some of that this summer, wish I had endless time to do more of it. I think there is a lifetime of cruising in these parts.

Start with sailing down to Panama, hang out for a while, then over to the south pacific and Australia never been there

Alex and Faster, great sail, I lived in BC for 12 years and sailed that a few times, it can be challanging with all the islands and tides shifts. but so worth the work.. post pictures,

Just exactly where I am now. Cruising the Windwards and Leewards, year round sailing with reliable winds.

Anchored in Admiralty Bay Bequia just now, next stop the Tobeago Cays.
