mazatlan is a good place to cruise to---even stop in for a while--is simpatico and has good sheltering areas from hurrycames.....

Cape Reinga where the Tasmaine Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. NZ was an amazing place to sail.

I suppose I'm lucky living in one of the best cruising destinations of the Med, Costa Smeralda, north-east Sardinia. The La Maddalena Archipelago is extraordinary, with Corsica just across the Straits, so I recommend it to everybody. See the emerald colour water I photographed from a helicopter on a business trip (paid by the client).
But as Andrea discovered, Turkey is also fabulous, many deserted bays, with stunning Greek ruins ashore appearing from the undergrowth. I have had my boat there for four years now and love it. I also recommend Turkey to everyone.

By the way, any Seaknots members passing through Porto Cervo in Sardinia are welcome to call in and share a beer and discss cruising itineraries.

I have to add the coast of Turkey to the list. It was breathtaking!

My favorite by far is the South Pacific Island chain of Vanuatu. It is truely Paradise! The native peoples live in palm frond huts, but will open up thier homes and arms to cruisers. The islands are volcanic, with rain forests, quiet bays full of fish and marine life (sea turtles, dugongs, coral, sponges, giant clams, etc.) The diving is unbelievable!!!

The islands were used as troop staging areas during WW2 and there are plenty of places to dive on the left over equipment dumped after the fighting was over. Diving the President Cooledge is a world class dive adventure. This ship hit friendly mines just off the coast and was set up as a marine preserve shortly after the war. The equipment, guns, dishes, shoes, pictures on the wall, lights....are still onboard. The coral and fish have turned the ship into an amazing rainbow! Its deep diving but if you are a diver.....its well worth the extra effort.

The capitol, Port Vila, is very civilized, as it was jointly ruled by the French and the English until the 70's. Port Vila is one of the few places in that part of the Pacific where you can get great French wines, Stilton cheeze, French bagettes, and prime beef.

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
