Lake Huron's North Channel.

Lots of anchorages-check
Moderate wind (most of the time)-check

Easiest Cruising grounds

West coast of Mexico from Guatamala all the way to San Diego. Including the Sea of Cortez. Wonderful warm water, Good diving in the Sea of Cortez. Numerous isolated anchorages. Fantasic sea life. Cost of Living much cheaper and wonderful people.

I have to wholeheartedly disagree with you on that. The West coast of Baja is very unforgiving with very few anchorages and although the winds are steady they are steady from the North which makes getting up to SD pretty darn hard. I do recognize though that the Sea of Cortez is a great place to sail.

actually we're from San Francisco. We have cruised Mexico for 2 yrs. When we first left San Diego we day hopped down the coast over a period of 10 days. We always had great anchorages. The only 24 hr sail that needs to be done is the last leg from Santa Maria Bay to Cabo. This is a passage of approx 125-150 miles. The Passage from Cabo north to San Diego can be onerous but if one does it in the Fall it tends to be better.
