Best cities to look for sailboats to crew on

Hello there,
There are a lot of experienced sailors here! I'd absolutely appreciate some good insight in the following question:

What are the cities/islands that are most popular for offshore sailors to be, at the different months of the year?

I'm trying to find out what city/island in the world should I visit to have the best chances to crew on a boat, in different months. It'd be great to make a list naming the potential cities for each month.

Thank you.

I would say Tahiti is best. Some of the crew get tired of the skipper after the trip from Mexico and would like to go someplace else
Lots of destinations from there

I think that this answer would vary according to your interest in a cruising area and your own geographical location. Fort Lauderdale, Florida would be a good location for the North Atlantic and Caribbean and best from November to June.
