It depends on the weather, what I'm doing, and who I'm with...

I've been beating my way across Buzzards Bay with the wind honkin' and had this playing in my mind;

Entering the harbor anywhere on the Vineyard, Cuttyhunk or Block;

backpacker6794 LoL....It's crazy.. but I like the modern Dub Step music like skrillex. .Music is a big factor on our boat.. seems to make every body want to work together better. and when you get out to where you see no land ...You can turn The Bose up as loud as you want..

Re: Favorite Sailing Song

3 for me, not necessarily in this order.

1. Single Handed Sailor - Dire Straits

2. Sailing Away From the Madness. - Kelly McGuire

3. Just Another Day - Rob Mehl ( Cuba Related )

So so many others by Kelly McGuire, and Rob Mehl, too many to name, but they are local Key West artist. Give a listen on ITunes, you will not be dissappointed. Hope to see them in person at some point.

I never listen to music while sailing, but I do maintain a couple playlists of Yacht Rock and assorted nonsense for use in nautical contexts: Sailing Playlists | Sailing Fortuitous

None! I sail to be away from man-made noise.

That one makes me thirsty for Guinness. Not sure I'd wanna sail to it but worth trying sometime.

This was my favourite this year.

Gordon Lightfoot sails (or sailed?) in the same area as I do. Christian Island is one of our destinations.
