    Havre Gosselin (approached through the Gouliot at peak tide).

    And Herm, of course, particularly if you can take the ground.

    (I also think that Secret Water is pretty good, but better slightly out of season!)

    Two absolutely magic moments:

    August, 1971, Pin Mill. Singlehanded out of West Mersea, a perfect afternoon, sailing slowly up the Orwell, seeing with my own eyes what I had read about in Ransome, anchored below the moorings and was serenaded by a nightingale in the trees.

    August 2007, the Colne; we had sailed down the Wallet overnight to see the start of the Colne Smack and Barge Race and as we slowly sailed into the Colne and anchored in Pyefleet in the very first light of dawn we saw nothing but the oil riding lights of barges and smacks.. we could have stepped back a century.

    Everywhere I've ever sailed I've enjoyed, even Scotland where it rained for a week and blew over 50kts at times. [The enjoyable bit about that was we were tied up in Oban]

    I would also go for the Bahamas but the Abacos as I've never been to Bimini.

    We have vowed to return in our own boat one day as, with less draft, we will be able to avoid running into the sand at regular intervals!
