Randy, do you ever get over to the East side? 30,000 Islands?

I like the North Channel - will probably head across there again this summer - but the East side of the Bay has some beautiful spots without the crowds of the North Channel.

We don't have the La Cloche Mountains but our own distinctive Canadian Shield rocks.

Tons of gunkholing possibilities; some great open water for sailing; and nice layover potential with accessible restaurants close by.

Just be careful approaching the coast: skinny water extends quite far out into the Bay, un-like on your side where you can sail right up to the cliff faces.

Wait! Did I say the sailing here was good? I meant not good! Not good at all! Mosquitoes! Rattlesnakes! Bears! Probably best for folks to stay away.

Nothing to see here.

Re: Best sailing spots of the world?

What about the North Channel? It's very nice! (Not so much in January.)
I've started a different kind of bare boat charter company up there.

I'm catering to small boat owners that don't want to drag there boat up here.
And people that see the value in chartering a smaller boat for allot less money.

In my mind the two ultimate destinations are:
Mediterranean
South Pacific

Re: Best sailing spots of the world?

I love threads like this...
Wanna know where the best sailing spot in the world is?
Where you have your boat! Use it, lots... Don't have a boat? Buy one.

It's why I sail a trailerable boat on a landlocked puddle instead of open waters in a liveaboard. I have obligations to my family (for now)... to pay certain bills... but I don't want to give up my fun EITHER...

Best place to sail, is just like best place to live... the one you got! Harkens back to (probably copyrighted), "if you can't be with the one you love..."

Re: Best sailing spots of the world?

My brother did a charter in the San Juans and suggested if I ever go there to charter a powerboat. He LOVED the scenery - when he could see it - but his week at least was light air and fog.

I guess you can get a bad week anyplace though. We had about 8 days of 24 hur a day rain in Bermuda.

Re: Best sailing spots of the world?

From what I hear, 71% of the Earth's surface is okay for sailing. The other 29% is not so good but the edge of it has some useful services. So it's mostly good.

Re: Best sailing spots of the world?

I love the PNW, but man the water's cold. I think it's great for us locals but maybe not ideal for a destination sail unless you like that PNW islands vibe. The san juans are really great in the summer.
