Top Sailing Destination on the Planet

What, in your opinion, is the best sailing destination on the planet?

In this month's group writing project you are invited to share your opinion on this question with the world. Maybe it's a spot you discovered on a vacation or a cruise? Maybe it's your current home sailing waters? Maybe it's some place you've only read about and it's your life's dream to sail there one day?

I shared my own views about what I consider the Top 9 Sailing Destinations on the Planet a few months ago. Three were places that I love to go to for sailing vacations these days as often as I can. Three were my favorite places to race Lasers on the east cost of the US. And three were places I discovered when sailing in Sunfish or Laser Masters World Championships. Now it's your chance to tell us about which place should be added to these nine to make it a round Top Ten Sailing Destinations on the Planet.

Usual rules...

1. Write a post on your blog about what you consider to be the top sailing destination on the planet. Tell us why you think it deserves that honor. Include some pictures if you have any. (If you're into some other kind of boating then you can still enter. Just tell us about the top kayaking destination, top windsurfing destination, whatever...)

2. Once you've posted your entry, let me know about it by sending an email to including a link to your post. If you don't have a blog just email me the article and I will post it here. Please let me know about your post, or send me your story, before the end of April.

3. Please give your post a unique title, ideally including the name of the place you are writing about. I don't want 20 posts all titled "Top Sailing Destination on the Planet." That will just confuse people.

4. I will post here two links to your article. Every day or so I will write a post listing any new entries in the project. Then at the end of the project I will provide a summary post with links to all of your articles.

No prizes. It's not a competition. Just a chance to share your special place with a bunch of fellow boating enthusiasts.

Go for it.

Ya know, I was gonna say something real soon about the lack of assignments, Professor.

It's been a while.

I do like a good blogging assignment.

Does places I'd like to sail count?

Tillerman said...

Absolutely JP. As I said in the post it's OK to write about somewhere you want to sail, even if you haven't been there yet. I meant to mention in the post (but forgot) that it's also OK to write about a list of several places (as I did).

I don't blog, but I have to say that Mount Hope Bay is by a long shot, the best place on the planet to sail!! : )
