San Diego is also a good place to sail

I do like Santa Barbara / ventura

South Coast England Chanel Islands and North Coast of France.
(Great opertunity to sail across to another country)

Southern Gulf Islands BC and San Juans USA.
(Sheltered waters, Scenery, Wildlife, Accsesabilty, Lots of destinations)
Desolation Sound
(As abouve but more Remote few pubs)
West Coast Vancouver Island.
(Even more remote not so sheltered)
