Re: What is Your DREAM Sailing Destination?

I would take the longest possible tropical route home.
For, as a destination there is, as they say, no place like home.

Incidentally, home for me is Darwin, Northern Australia.

Wow, can't believe I am the first to say the Caribbean. Just returned from chartering in the BVIs and all I can think about is getting back out there. This time I want to take my own boat and stay for at least a couple of years. The house goes up for sail this spring (in fairness this was the plan before the charter but that sealed the deal).

That's my pick. Have been wanting to do that kind of sail for over 20 years.

You know, I am not sure. Was just off the dirt runway. Perhaps this view is identifiable

I'm mostly interested in the isolation.

Re: What is Your DREAM Sailing Destination?

My UBS account manager tells me there are UBS offices in Melbourn and Sidney. My money can make the trip in two minutes. I will take longer in following it.
